Wolfgang Ullrich

Dr. Ullrich, boss Audi Sport can have the smile under his leadership, the firm from Ingolstadt won 13 of the last 15 editions of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Man has become an iconic figure of Le Mans: highly respected for his organizational qualities and technological excellence of its cars, but also for his courtesy and sportsmanship. In 2010 when Pescarolo Sport is placed in receivership, it makes a sincere and moving tribute to his great rival of the time: “The 24 Hours without Henry is a lack, because it has given so much at Le Mans. ” The man is also remarkable psychologist and leader of men. In 2011, when Allan McNish car collides at full speed security gates, one sees his face full of anguish on the screens. When the pilot miraculously unscathed self shredded, it has a reflex that may surprise: he applauded … Gradually, his team around him applauded what amounts to a miracle. In a moment he found the attitude that serves to remove the anxiety and focus again on the stroke of the remaining crews. History will show that there was not a moment to lose, as the last of his three cars win the race with 13 seconds ahead of the first of 908 … Dr. Ullrich also smiled as he lived a nice first half 2015: Audi won its first two rounds of the World Endurance Championship (WEC): 6 hours of Silverstone and the 6 hours of Spa. But the races were hard fought and the victory against the Porsche has hung by a thread.
