  • Gearshift issues on Audi R18 ultra #4

The two Audi R18 e-tron quattro sportscars continued their fight for the lead in the Le Mans 24 Hours throughout the 20th hour of the race.

At 11 a.m., a mere 3.068 seconds separated the two diesel hybrid sportscars that were being driven by Benoît Tréluyer (#1) and Allan McNish (#2).

The #4 Audi R18 ultra lost one lap due to a gearshift problem that occurred twice. The driver was able to solve the issue by switching off and on the ignition.
