The #7 Peugeot looks like its got a pretty bad vibration judging from the in board.

I like the sound of the Corvette from on board. Sounds a bit like a V8Supercar. :thumbs:

The Gulf Aston Martin #60 in the wall. One of the Lotuses is in trouble too.

Peugeot in the lead after a long stop from the Audi. Okay, that's now redressed after a stop from the #9 Peugeot.

This is really the closest Le Mans ever. The lead 4 cars are on the same lap in LMP1 and within one lap in both of the GT classes.

Hello everybody!

Forums still standing then......:).... Just so everybody knows if not already....(although you probably do).......have you seen the Speed online stream? Both Le Mans and a dedicated stream from on-board Corvette No.73. No signup fee, nothing like that. Didn't even have to register. Must be sponsored by then I guess. Very good. Wish I could identify the cars that pass / get passed though!
No one reads this, do they? Thought not.

Not everyone is as they at first seemed.

Nice one Mike, thanks although I don't think I'll have time to look at this stage.

I gather this is the closest race since 1969 when the gap was 2 seconds after a position change on the last lap. It could go to either of the first two cars at this stage but I have to say with each lap, the Audi is looking increasingly secure. 18 minutes to go.

Andre Lotterer wins for Audi in car #2. Simon Pagenaud second in the #9 Peugeot followed by Nick Minassian in the #8 Peugeot.

In LMP2, the Greaves Zytek Nissan #42 won. Corvette wins both GT classes. Brilliant.

Yeah, Sebastian has been runner up something like 4 times now. He certainly looks like he's sick of that experience.

Panis quits Le Mans



Olivier Panis has called time on his Le Mans racing career, stating that his fifth position in last weekend's event will be the last result he will post at La Sarthe.

The 44-year-old former Monaco Grand Prix winner has competed in four Le Mans for ORECA since 2008, and this year shared the team's privately-entered year-old Peugeot 908 HDi FAP with Nicolas Lapierre and Loic Duval.

But the Frenchman is quitting Le Mans because he thinks his chances of securing a drive that will put him in contention to win the race are low.

"I have been very pleased to do this with ORECA for four years, but for me this is my last year," Panis told AUTOSPORT. "For Le Mans yes. I will do some races in GT and the Trophee Andros on the ice but for me Le Mans is finished.

"I think it is my time, and I don't think I will have the opportunity to race with a nice car like we have had for the last two years, and doing Le Mans for the sake of doing Le Mans - I am not interested."

Panis added that fifth place - which equalled his best result in the race – was the best he could have hoped for in the race, given that Peugeot and Audi both brought three-car factory teams.

"We knew before we came here that it would be difficult to fight with the factory cars," he said. "The result was exactly what we expected to be honest, it was just we went about it the hard way!

"Audi and Peugeot did a very good job and finished very close at the end of the race. It was really tough with a lot of accidents. But no injuries for anybody is the best thing so well done to Audi."
