From what I heard, the Audi seems to be the fastest of the bunch in terms of raw pace, but the Toyota and Porsche are better on fuel. Not sure how much more fuel efficient they are, but they were certainly viable choices in the Endurance League seasons. On very fuel heavy tracks (such as Le Mans) that might make a very big difference in a long race such as this.Smart decision going for the DLC LMP1 cars, they are much better to drive and way more balanced.
My only concern is that you're allowing the Le Mans version of the Audi R18, which in TT is significantly faster than the other cars and seems to dominate.
Might be worth banning that option perhaps?

Did a bit of digging and at Le Mans for the last ever Endurance season, it was an Audi win, but @inkychris and @F4H MaR4uDer brought home 2nd and 3rd respectively in the Porsche. So if you really want, you can do good in the non-Audis. (Source)
It's not always that a car is deemed "OP" simply based off of the world record TT time. Especially when we're not just doing 1 lap, but more like 45-50 laps. A lot can happen in such a long race.
In short it's a lot like GT3. The Lambo and AMG are easy to be fast in as their baseline characteristics are very powerful. But you can beat those "OP" cars in an underdog if you're willing to put the time and effort into it. We don't really like to ban cars if we can avoid it, so I'm gonna say no to banning the Audi for the reasons I listed above
