Audi. But my very very close second is Porsche and Rebellion.

If you cut me open it says PORSCHE inside. I used to work as a race engineer and have engineered porsches to podiums and victories in all the major endurance races and all the major championships in europe and the usa. Now I tend to support the turbo cars at the sharp end - and of course porsche regardless if they win or lose.

With respect to various marques, I identify first with Porsche then Honda. So I am fan of the current Porsche effort. I like endurance racing and between the prototypes, GT cars and those two marques I have always found someone to cheer for. I also enjoy the history of Porsche, mid-engine cars and have been doing a resto-mod (slowly) on a Porsche 914 over a number of years.

I'm fan of German engineering in general. Audi comes first, then Porsche. I hated Peugeot and have no sympathy for Toyota.

I just love the entire category. The cars we're seeing right now are, in my opinion, the most spectacular modern racing cars. F1 just look like toy cars next to these spaceships.

I love the underdogs too, but I wish they'd get a bit more competitive. Some more privateers would be very welcome too.

I have loved Le Mans as far as I can remember. I can remember seeing the traditional Le Mans start on tv in black & white on my parents 19 inch tv screen. And the porsche 917 win ... However, being Danish, I am a huge TK fan and as such ending up being an Audi fan. Last year, I had decided to skip Audi, but once I was there at the circuit de la Sarthe, it felt wrong to be anything but an Audi fan. But I am not a fan of the Lotterer crew and I don't see the Duval crew as a winning team, even though I have huge respect for the speed of Duval. Remember him in the Oreca Peugeot? So this year, I had decide to cheer for the Toyotas. But 2 weeks ago I bought an Audi A6, and can you go to Le Mans in an Audi and hope for a Toyota win? Haven't decided yet

I've always had an affinity towards Porsche, but love the whole category too. I started following motorsport seriously, when the 917's came along, but have always loved the innovation and passion that all the manufacturers and teams have brought to the table over the years.
I know we've had Audi overload over the last decade or so, but I hold them in the highest regard too. Watching them in action, has been poetry in motion.
The category in general, is in great condition atm.
Even Peugeot were great to watch. They played the bad guys, well.

Funny, for me Peugeot were always the good guys and Audi the "evil empire" bad guys. The narrative was that the heroic Frenchmen entered the sport to save the integrity of prototype racing from the domination of cold corporate Audi.

Yeah, but isn't most of the car designed and made in Japan? I see a lot of Japanese sponsors on the car. I might change my mind about them if there are considerable German engineering in their cars .

The engine and hybrid are made in Japan. The aero and car assembly are done in Cologne.

I follow Toyota in most forms of motorsport. WEC, Super GT, Super Formula, Nascar, GT3 with Lexus and next year WRC. But I like Mazda and Subaru as well. I'm a fan of lmp1 in general. But I hope the direction it goes in looks is more futuristic and less daytona prototype.

When I was testing the waters with sportscars (09-11) it was Audi all the way, but since the WEC was established I've just wanted to see good races, both between the factory and privateer cars.

Better a 23 1/2 hour ding-dong that ends up in a 1-2-3 rather than three different teams on the podium that finished laps apart.
