    AF Corse has 12 cars in the race but just 1 is going to win...

    #2 is leading instead of the #1 which had turbo issues costing it 5 laps.

    Porsche #20 was leading for a good hour or so when the #1 hit issues before it hit issues afterwards and is still in the garage after 2 hours.

    Am I the only one who thinks it's kinda pathetic for a factory team to put their cars in the garage for an hour just so they can parade it around for the last lap?

    Yeah because a 3rd car and a team of 3 drivers and all those change parts needed are free Le Mans candy. Ok, LOL.
    Not an issue for me at all.

    #14 back out.

    Only 2 could have won at best. :p

    Congrats to Rebellion for winning the LMP1-L class.

    Because in the end they made it too easy, they crave a true challenger to one day free them from the bonds of having to perpetually race. They long for the day an opponent cant just outright smash them, and so they keep searching. Waiting, longing, hoping it will happen...:(




    Nah I have no idea, they need to put a smile on. :sly:

    Final lap. It was a fantastic race this year. Porsche did a awesome job on their comeback. Toyota really strong this year.
    A shame that the #7 had to retire and that the #20 also had to park in the pits, but great that they could get the car fit again for the final lap.
    Congratulations to Audi, they did a good job like always.

    Sad that it's already over again and that we have to wait for a whole year till the next race.

    Coming into 2011 that Fassler / Lotterer / Treyluer line up was the Audi line up nobody thought of or talked about. 4 years later they've won 3 times. Impressive.

    Hmmm. I wonder if the Porsche driver is looking at the back of the Audi and reading the "Welcome Back" line over and over again :lol::lol::lol:

    And so Audi take what could be considered a fairly improbable victory.
    They've rarely looked more suspect. But they still win Le Mans.
    Truly mental...!

    Very much so. You'd think they would loose something with McNish retiring and TK coming towards the end of his career, but nope.

    In case you didn't know.

    Must be ahuge issue for them to bring up the budget for a third cars. If anything, I'm surprised that the VW AG is allocating the budget to Porsche to race alongside Audi, given that they're both belonging to the same corporation.

    I know.
    It's just some people pretending I don't know it doesn't directly translate to a chance to win.
    I just said it has it's own weight. It surely doesn't h And prove that wrong.

    Well guys, it's been a lot of fun and a genuine pleasure to watch this race and discuss it with all of you. It's been a great experience, like every year. Congratulations to Audi, despite not being my favourites for this year they earned the win with great driving and impecable work in the garages. LMP2 and the GT categories gave a great show, and I'm happy to see Simonsen's old team taking the win in GTAM.

    Le Mans, oh Le Mans! :D Ah...I'm beggining to feel that post-race nostalgia ;)

    Still think Lotterer's the best outside of F1 today.
    If he stepped into a top team's car tomorrow he'd be in with a shout of top 5s every race weekend.

    Excellent race. The Corvette stream is awesome, they're doing burnouts on the parade lap :)
