24h Le Mans - Race Facts (Hour 23)
Final dash at La Sarthe. After the turbulent 22nd hour of the 24 hour classic at Le Mans, all four Audi R18 sportscars lapped trouble-free.
AndrĂ© Lotterer maintained the lead in the #1 Audi R18 e-tron quattro ahead of Allan McNish’s #2 sister car. One lap separates the two hybrid prototypes after 361 laps so far. There are no changes on position three either with Mike Rockenfeller claiming this spot after having taken over driving duties in the #4 Audi R18 ultra from Oliver Jarvis.
Marc GenĂ© set some very fast lap times after his accident in the 22nd hour but remains fifth overall. One lap separates the #3 Audi R18 ultra from fourth place with one hour to go.
