Le Mans 2010 - LMP1

This year's Le Mans 24 Hours was again placed under the sign of a duel Peugeot - Audi.

Everything had begun well for Peugeot, 3 Peugeot of the official team and those of the team Oreca-Matmut had taken the first 4 places on the grid, leaving the Audi several seconds behind. But Le Mans is an endurance race and Audi had not said its last words.

The pole car Peugeot #3 must give-up after 2 hours 30 for a problem of suspension. Then #2 saw its engine exploding on Sunday morning at about 7 am and the last Peugeot of the official team stopped after 22 hours after having just taken back the 2nd place.

The 3 Audi R15+ was then at the first 3 places, which they will not leave anymore, in spite of a last attack of the Oreca-Matmut Peugeot 908, which was victim in its turn of a motor problem while it had just got the fastest lap in race and was at 8" of the third Audi. Audi so takes its revenge and signs a beautiful triplet.

Behind, Lola Aston Martin team was not either spared by the problems, only #007 ends in 6th position while Oreca-AIM #6, 1st essence, picks up a brilliant 4th place after an exemplary race and the LMP2 #42 of Strakka Racing takes the 5th position.
