Teutonic giants, American heavyweights, gutsy Gauls, aerodynamic Brits…
The World’s best sports car teams came to the 68th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans with all guns blazing – and what a race ensued! Over a gruelling 24 hour period those spectators who could keep pace with the action at the magnificent Circuit de la Sarthe witnessed a level of stamina, driving skill, engineering prowess and teamwork that is simply unique to this gargantuan event.
These are drivers with experience of endurance, touring car and Grand Prix racing but nowhere are they pushed as hard as they are here…
Of the teams entered – Panoz, Chrysler, Cadillac, Reynard, WR, Porsche, Lola, Viper, Corvette and many privateers – some came determined to win, others were just aiming for a finish. Right from the ‘flaming’ start to Frank Biela’s marathon stint in the closing stages, it was the Audi Sport Team Joest R8s piloted by Biela, Pirro and ’97 Le Mans winner Tom Kristensen that dominated the leaderboard.
By Sunday evening there were three Audis on the podium - achieving a 1-2-3 to equal Ford, Peugeot and Porsche.
