  Le Mans Winning Race Car Unveiled for First Time  

The race car that won the prestigious Le Mans 24 hour race last weekend was unveiled for its first public showing in the UK today.

The Team ADT Champion Racing number 3 Audi R8 sportscar driven by JJ Lehto, Marco Werner and Tom Kristensen was the star attraction at an event hosted at ADT’s head office in Sunbury-on-Thames, greater London.

The event was organised to help celebrate the outstanding achievements of Team ADT Champion Racing at Le Mans. To cap an exceptional weekend for the team, car number 2, driven by Emanuele Pirro, Frank Biela and Allan McNish finished in third place, ensuring that both Team ADT Champion Racing cars finished on the podium. Alex McNutt, Managing Director of ADT Europe, presented Kaye Wilson, Team Manager of Team ADT Champion Racing, with a large bottle of champagne to acknowledge the result.

“To have both cars on the podium is an outstanding performance from the team in the toughest of circumstances. The winning car completed 370 laps and 5,050 kilometres over the 24 hours, which is phenomenal. ADT is proud to be supporting Team ADT Champion Racing and we congratulate the team on their performance” said Mr McNutt.

Ms Wilson added: “The support we receive from ADT is fantastic and it was considerably enhanced in Le Mans with the provision of a closed circuit television surveillance operation which ensured that all our valuable racing equipment was protected at all times. This unique partnership has taken our relationship to a new level and we thank ADT very much for their support.”

In response to growing concerns over the security of Team ADT Champion Racing’s equipment, components and spares - worth US $7 million - and to ensure maximum protection for the team at Le Mans, ADT provided electronic surveillance for the team via a new state of the art mobile closed circuit television (CCTV) vehicle that was positioned in Team ADT Champion Racing’s pit paddock area. This was the first time ever in the 73 year history of Le Mans that a race team was provided with electronic surveillance of this nature.
