At le Mans it is Audi 1 - 2 - 3. The race-winning No.1 Audi R18 e-tron quattro of Andre Lotterer, Benoit Treluyer and Marcel Fassler.Twenty-four hours is a long time to keep a race car together. This was Audi's 11th first place finish. In this race they are allowed to do almost anything to get the car back on the road. It can be put back together after an accident and sent back out. Check out the video below to see what Romain Dumas does to his car to get it back to the pits. He still came in 5th overall.
Anthony Davidson, former Formula One driver, now a SKY-TV announcer for Formula One races had this problem driving a Toyota which got clipped by a Ferrari. He suffered some broken vertabre in his back.
