Spa 6 hours 2011 - LMP

At a little more than a month of Le Mans 24 hours, 6 hours of Spa-Francorchamps gives generally a great preview for the Sarthe race.

We saw this year a nice victory for Peugeot. Yet all had not started well for the French team. After a qualifying session cut by a red flag, the Peugeot were relegated at the end of the grid. The 3 Audi go ahead in order 1, 2, 3.

Under pressure anyway because finally Peugeot sets the fastest lap of the warm-up in the morning, Allan McNish spun round on the first lap at the chicane of the Combes and must let run ahead the Peugeot #7 driven by Alexander Wurtz (photo). This was just the beginning ...
After one hour the #7 is in first position, followed by the Audi #1 and #2 and the 2 other Peugeot. After 2 hours, only the Audi #2 remains in second position between the Peugeot. At the halfway the 3 Peugeot are heading the race.
Half an hour before the end, Peugeot is on track to achieve a hat-trick, then the #9 is unfortunately the victim of a breach of the right front suspension and will finish at the eighth position.

The Pescarolo team on its side is fulfilling its goal of placing the #16 just behind the diesel and even ahead of the Peugeot #9 and #10 of Oreca-Matmut team.

The race at Le Mans promises to be very exciting this year.
