In this season's post-Le Mans racing, the Audi R18 has proven to be a just slightly slower formula than the Porsche 919.

The ensuing battles have been the stuff for the legend books.

Take for example a fight last weekend at the 6 Hours of Bahrain, between Benoit Treluyer and Porsche's Marc Lieb. During the fourth hour of the race, Treluyer was fighting to maintain his lead and potentially steal the drivers' championship.
