“GOLDEN HELMET” FOR AUDI DRIVER DINDO CAPELLO

13 December 2006 - INGOLSTADT, Germany - Audi factory driver Dindo Capello has received the "Golden Helmet” from the Italian motorsport specialist magazine "Autosprint” for a second time after success in 2003, acknowledging the 2006 American Le Mans Series title won by the Italian with the revolutionary Audi R10 TDI. "In Italy, the ‘Casco d’oro’ is the ‘Oscar of motorsport’, that’s why this award means a lot to me,” explained the two-time Le Mans winner who was handed the trophy in Bologna last Saturday.

Capello’s team-mate Allan McNish received two awards last week. The readers of the British Audi specialist magazine "Audi Driver” voted the Scotsman "Audi Personality of the Year 2006”. Meanwhile for a fourth time in his career, the Audi driver received the BRDC/ACO Trophy for the best-placed British driver at the Le Mans 24 Hours from the British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC).

Dindo Capello and Allan McNish clinched the title in the American Le Mans Series with the Audi R10 TDI. They finished third with the diesel sportscar in the Le Mans 24 Hours.
