    And Tréluyer's immensely talented as well. It's a shame for #7 though, Nakajima was setting a hellish pace that seemed totally unbeatable!

    Riding on board the Corvette stream, how good must that feel to make it to the end? The flags waving, the slow parade...you've done it. You've done what others could not, and made it the full 24 hours. And for some, with a podium finish or a win.

    Congratulations to Audi for adding another win to their record. :tup:

    Next year they'll be taking on some hopefully more developed versions of Toyota and Porsche.

    Bring on LeMans 2015 :gtpflag::lol:

    After last year's farce with BoP, and with a brand new race car, I'll take it :)

    Congratulations to Audi #1 and the rest. It's nice to see the Danish #95 winning GTE AM - maybe for Allan Simonsen? :tup:

    No car I was rooting for won its class, except in the GTE AM (that one was for Allan).
    Now I have to wait another year, hopefully Toyota can FINALLY get the Le Mans title then.

    Poor guys, as if 1998 and 1999 wouldn't have been enough.

    The Dane Train wins GTE-Am. That must be an emotional garage.

    Lotterer almost in tears, and gosh, it shouldn't be any less. After a mechanical and emotional rollercoaster he's won the greatest race in the world!

    Ooops: It's Benoit Tréluyer who's in the car, my bad :p.

    Ok but I'm not here to discuss why Toyota didn't bring a third car, it's their money, their decisions.
    Some managers like to spend money into motorsport some prefer to spend less.
    Therefore you can't say the budget allocated to Le Mans by Toyota is bigger than Audi's one. That was my point.

    I guess, I could join you for that...but 24h race so soon...Idk

    Plus I'm not as knowledgeable on that nor do I have a horse in the race.

    That was a great race to watch, stuff was happening the entire time. Congrats to Audi for the 1-2. I need some sleep now, spent about 16 hours of the last 24 watching this.

    No, Toyota is third. Porsche is classified but is somewhere down the rankings.
