24h Le Mans – Race Facts (Hour 8)

  • Audi is still leading with three cars
  • #3 Audi R18 ultra back in the top ten

Except a spin of Dindo Capello the four Audi R18 cars experienced a troublefree eighth hour of racing at Le Mans.

After a third of the race the Audi Sport Team Joest drivers defended their clear 1-2-3 lead. The Lola-Toyota in position four was four laps behind the leading #1 Audi R18 e-tron quattro driven by Marcel Fässler.

Just before he handed the car over to Allan McNish, Dindo Capello lost some time due to a spin in the second chicane. Nevertheless, the #2 Audi R18 e-tron quattro was still on the same lap like the leader. Marc Gené made his way back to the top ten with his #3 Audi R18 ultra.
