Those R18's are so beautiful...
Description: The race has been dominated in recent years by diesel-powered prototypes, but this year also saw the introduction of the first hybrid prototype, the #5 Hope Racing Oreca. The car was plagued with mech...

Awe how cute, it's got a little Aston Martin front grill on it :)
Description: Both teams brought three cars to the race, presumably in the hopes of securing a 1-2-3 finish, but Audi had two cars knocked out of the race fairly early on. Both accidents came as a result of the Aud...

But if the straights got shorter, that means you should be able to increase downforce as your straight-line-acceleration time is shorter, even if acceleration is more frequent.
Andy Rogers Jun 13, 2011
They're running less downforce because of those long straights if I'm correct. Sure it isn't the HUGE straight it used to be, but still enough to get the prototype cars to get past 200mph still (I think)
Aaron Cartwright Jun 13, 2011
The Ferrari driver did exactly what he was told to do, and that was to stay on the racing line. The fact is the p1 cars are running very little downforce, if this happened in the older Audi he wouldn't have crashed. drivers not at fault here..
Trevor Brown Jun 13, 2011
the Ferrari driver still didn't give him enough room.
Trevor Brown Jun 13, 2011
In the first crash I agree that he should have been more careful, that was not a good place to try and overtake. But I think that the 2nd crash was the GT drivers fault, the Audi flashed it's lights and tried to pass the Ferrari on a straight, and
Jesus Guerra Jun 13, 2011
Oh man that was awful when Audi crashed. Tire flew chasing the camera man
Kevin Watson Jun 14, 2011
It look like a f1 car now. He's safe and that what counts the most with me, to race another day.
Aaron Cartwright Jun 13, 2011
Mcnish saw a slower Audi over the crest, he reacted, went around the slower Audi, not knowing the gt car was even there. not anyone's fault really, guess that's why they call them accidents. Oh and that's not a slow corner, great place to pass!
Will Conover Jun 13, 2011
Andrew. You couldn't be more wrong. The first crash was just a worst case scenario and the second was the Ferraris fault
Michael Palazzo Jun 13, 2011
pieces of that car were flying everywhere, glad that guy was alright.
Adam Joe Jun 13, 2011
I do not blame this accident on the GT driver. The Audi should not of passed where hes was trying to pass.
Description: They both conduct themselves in a sportsmanlike manner, and neither team would want to win simply because the other team had some bad luck. The remaining #2 Audi fought hard for the remainder of the r...

Haha same here goo vettes even though they didnt do so hot
Andy Rogers Jun 13, 2011
I actually wanted the 908s to beat the R18 partially because of the Audi fanboys here, but overall I didn't really care. No American teams competing up there. But congrats to Corvette Racing!
Kevin Watson Jun 14, 2011
It's racing guys.any corner or straight is a opportunity to pass someone. But good judgement wins the race.
Lukas Lebs Jun 14, 2011
I was going for the ZR1 didnt care much for these... Well ya i did but not as much
Jesus Guerra Jun 13, 2011
Blind spot. It was no ones fault. Audi saw what seemed like a good opportunity and took.
Description: Audi didn't get the 1-2-3 finish they had wanted, but if you're only going to have one finish, it's not so bad to have it win. Peugeot will have to step up their game if they want to co...

+1 this or NASCAR? Enuff said! Lol
Matt Robbins Jun 14, 2011
Yea my bad guys, I was talking about GT, which like Andy, is the only one I really care about.
Andy Rogers Jun 13, 2011
I think he meant to say who won in the GT categories. Which is really all I personally care about
Trevor Brown Jun 13, 2011
Audi won the LMP1 category, and Chevy won the GTEPro category.
Ján Kubecka Jun 13, 2011
I think someone needs to pay more attention, Audi won
David Bright Jun 13, 2011
Uhh, Matt, it said Audi's last car won
Matt Robbins Jun 13, 2011
Way to say nothing about who won. Good job Chevy! USA USA USA!!!
Andy Rogers Jun 13, 2011
Both the 908 and R18 are just gorgeous!
Description: We have here a video of the #3 Audi, driven by Allen McNish, very dramatically hitting the wall. McNish was uninjured.

Look at that guy with the boom mike he gets hit with carbon fiber parts at his legs and drops him,and if it wasn't for that barrier he would of died.
Alex Natale Jun 13, 2011
That's the craziest crash I've seen all year! Good thing it was a Audi if it was and American car it would of bursted into flames!
Jason Dykhoff Jun 13, 2011
Lol the tire off the Audi was chasing a camera guy it's good that the driver is ok
Andy Rogers Jun 13, 2011
I'm surprised neither the driver or the people being showered by R18 parts were seriously hurt or killed
Taylor Holloway Jun 13, 2011
I can't believe he walked away
Andy Kleschick Jun 13, 2011
McNish is lucky he survived.
Andy Kleschick Jun 13, 2011
That's why you should always try to pass to the outside of a car. Even in running we pass on the outside so we dont get disqualified if someone knocks into us on purpose or not, just so that we won't get dq'ed or in this example, would crash.
John McFadden Jun 13, 2011
That wreck was very scary for Audi and the other wreck was also with a Ferrari so two ferraris took out two of three audis!
Jesus Guerra Jun 13, 2011
You do have time to think but on that turn u don't. It's true it's all wat ur gut tells you
Michael Riley Jun 13, 2011
I didnt watch the full race (wish I could've) but IMO Allen McNish chose the wrong time to pass. :/ and was going too fast for that corner anyways
Andy Rogers Jun 13, 2011
Shame the other Vette crashed Could've been a 1-2 for Corvette Racing :/
Matt Robbins Jun 13, 2011
Good job Chevy! USA USA USA!!!
