Truth in 24 is a 2008 documentary film directed by Keith Cossrow and Bennett Visltear detailing Audi's preparation for the 2008 24 Hours of Le Mans. The team is followed through several races prior to Le Mans, including the 12 Hours of Sebring and the 1000km of Monza. Neither race results in victory for Audi (although they did win class at Sebring) heading into Le Mans. The focus shifts to Le Mans itself, documenting the buildup to the race and the ultimate result of the race.

Numerous Audi officials and drivers are interviewed through the film, including the eventual winning team of Allan McNish, Dindo Capello, and Tom Kristensen.

Release[edit]

Truth in 24 had its television premiere on March 20, 2009, airing on ESPN.[2] The release was the day prior to the 2009 12 Hours of Sebring. The film was released as a free download on iTunes on March 24, 2009.[3]
