I'm absolutely stunned that all 4 Peugeot cars are out, 3 with an apparently similar problem. I was pulling for Audi from the get go, but to see last year's winners go down in such a big way... I can't help but feel for those guys.
I'll feel better when the Audis cross the line though! :)

Distance record broken - 397 laps. Would have been 400 but for a whiney man...

well done for Audi Flag:## Flag:## Flag:## !yahoo:

Peugeot have the fastest car, but it counts for nothing if it cant finish the race...

Well done Audi!! One of the best Le Mans race I have ever seen!
The battle for the lead in GT2 between the Ferrari and the Corvette after 7 hours of racing was epic!

Forgot about this thread, but yes.. I watched the race (not 24h, only from the start till F1 qualifying)

I was quite worried about Nigel Mansell. I am glad they said he was awake. Awesome race though ! Best one in years, if not in decades.

Well done Audi :)

Now, something that wasn't showed on television : **Warning**

Ouch...

Well it's not completely the Audi driver's fault. The mechanics tried to warn him. As a cameraman he should know that it's not allowed to be so close to the 'pitroad' in some kinda stages of the race
