Diesels @ The Nurburgring 24h!

Diesels are quickly becoming more and more prevelant in endurance racing of many types. And it's not just the Audi R15 TDI vs. the Peugeot 908 HDi at LeMans, or the VW vs. Mitsu Dakar racers either.

Tomorrow (05/23/09) the 2009 edition of the Nurburgring 24h starts. There are 180 cars registered for this epic event, of which 18 are diesel powered!

In the D1T class (1.75-2.0L diesel) there are entries from BMW, Opel, Seat, & VW.

In the D2T class (2.0-2.5L) there is an entry from Toyota.

In the D3T class (2.5-3.0L) there are several BMWs and an Audi.
