Audi takes an incredbile win in the 2007 24 Hours of Le Mans. I literally was just about to hit the sack when Dindo went into the wall at the Indianapolis turn.. I was so bummed, pissed and more.. It was more than just a crash. Tom Kristensen lost out on his 8th Le Mans win esp. having come back after the DTM crash. Allen McNish doesn’t get his second win. Dindo Capello doesn’t get his. Audi lost it’s second car out of the race. Audi 1/3.
I really feel bad about Mike Rockenfeller. They were running strong too. Luhr did have an interview and he didn’t sound to happy about Mike’s driving or choice but who knows.. it was very early to be driving so aggressive.
Peogeout came but didn’t really give the Audi’s a run. They were always there but Audi was putting the hurt on early. Even at one point it was an Audi 1-2-3. Peugeout came with two cars and lost one so in the end it was 1 vs. 1. In the end they were +10 laps down.
Big congrats to the Pescarolo Sport team who came in 3rd. The petrol running car was only +1 lap off the diesel Peugeout.
Having children does’t work quite well with a 24 hours race, even with a Tivo. I would love to thank radiolemans.com for bringing the audio feed as it helped so much. Now I have to go back and watch the tivo to catch up.
Here to next years 24 Hours of Le Mans where we should see a stronger Peugeout team, factory Porsche RS Spyders and possibly the Acuras.
Now I just have to wait for Petit Le Mans in October.
