LE MANS 2011


Audi was able to stay the line and win again for the 10th time in the last 12 years. Andre Lofferer, in the helmet, cried when he crossed the line. And so did his two teammates who shared the car, Benoit Treluyer and Marcel Fressier. It was not an easy run. Last year Audi came in 1-2-3. This year they lost the first car in the first hour of the race and the second one in the early morning darkness. Both cars a total loss and both of those drivers thanking their lucky stars. LMP 2 was won by a Nissan entered by Greaves Motorsport. GT-E-Pro was won by a Corvette entered by Corvette Racing.
