This can still be interesting, oil on the track...

Edit: must suck big time if your engine blow up 4 minutes before the end, especially when your race hasn't been exactly trouble free.

The Oak Pescarolo (LMP2 place 4) spits out oil since the end of the main straight, that's baaaaad for him and all the others in the last 3 minutes...

Audi goes into the last lap with 1:20 min to spare.

Congratulations to the team behind the #2 Audi! What a great race this was. Also congratulations to the pit crew for that last pitstop.

A nice win for the Corvettes too.

That was an awesome motor race. I thought you could not beat the 2008 race but this did it by miles.

Chuffed to bits to see Audi win after everything they went through. Well deserved!

Also, well done to Peugeot team (apart from those responsible for those ridiculous tactics).
