Audi announced its retirement from the World Endurance Championship, which includes the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans, after 18 years of participation in the top-flight prototype class from 1999. When Porsche re-joined in 2014 with the 919 Hybrid, its first comeback Le Mans victory came a year later with a 1-2 finish.

Audi has been immensely successful in its WEC campaign, its first winning streak courtesy of the R8 LMP which won Le Mans five of the six years it competed in – 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, and 2005. When it was succeeded by the diesel R10 TDI, it dominated the subsequent three years of competition from 2006 to 2008.

Audi went on to win Le Mans in 2010 and 2011 with the R15 TDI plus and the R18 respectively, before the R18 e-tron quattro continued Audi’s string of Le Mans victories from 2012 to 2014. In sporting fashion, Porsche has released this video tribute to its VW Group stablemate and fellow competitor, Audi Sport.

Starting with a flashback from three years ago where an R18 e-tron quattro LMP1 racer greeted Porsche’s re-entry into the endurance racing fray with a “Welcome Back” burnout, a Porsche tractor-driving farmer goes back to the scene of the burnout for some “editing.” Go ahead, it’s well worth a watch.
