2010 Le Mans 24: Final Race Results - Audi Wins! Sweeps Podium!


By Mike Sulka

In front of 238,850 fans, the most unpredictable of results have been unveiled as Audi have won the 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans and swept the overall podium! The victory is the ninth time in 11 years that Audi have won the Le Mans 24. This year the top honors went to the No 9 Audi Sport North America-Audi R15 TDI LMP1 entry who completed a record number of laps with 396. The previous distance record was set back in 1971 with a total of 392 laps/5335.313. Even with the ninth victory by Audi, Porsche has the all-time record of Le Mans 24 victories.

Allan McNish said of the victory, "The race come down to reliability, we've all won it (Peugeot, Oreca and Audi), so I know the highs and lows. I feel very sorry for Oreca but also somewhat relieved, as it took pressure off our car."

McNish referencing the faster cars of Peugeot who swept the top four positions during qualifying, but all four failed to finish the race.

Coming home second was the No 8 Audi Sport Team Joest-Audi R15 TDI LMP1 entry with the No 7 Team Joest Audi filling out the podium.

In LMP2, Strakka Racing and their HPD ARX.01 led the entire distance as they easily won their class by 6 laps.

In LMGT2, Team Felbermayr Proton-Porsche 997 GT3 RSR won in by a lap over the Hankook Team Farnbacher-Ferrari F430 GT after a tough early fight with the Corvette Racing teams. The GT2 winner beat the GT1 winner -Larbre Competition-Saleen S7R by 7 laps.
....

I like that last little tibit! lol

Just got back from Le Mans, wow what a weekend!!! Nothing compares to Le Mans, it is such an amazing event to see in person, its a definite "must do"!


Going thru the insane number of pictures I took right now, I think I took over 1500 pictures. Also, the parking lots were almost as interesting as the race was! So much SUPERCARS! It would be easier to list the cars I didnt see there rather than the ones I saw. From Ferrari's, Porsche's, Aston Martins, Maserati's, Lambo's, even a Gumpert. I will make a new thread in the photo section when I get done with the pics, but I'll post this teaser for you guys now

Nice!! Where did you stay, at a camping site near the track or in a hotel? I think I should go next year, sounds awesome.

You should definitely go! If you have the chance, try hitting up both the Le Mans 24hr and the Nurburgring 24hr races. They are very different, but you will see some of the same cars.


I actually have a friend that lives in Le Mans, about 10 minutes from the track. We could hear the cars racing from his apartment.

I'm going to look into it. I believe lots of people stay on one of the camping sites near the track but I think there are also quite a few hotels in Le Mans.

Sucks that the BMWs are so off the pace. Apparently they cannot use the double wishbone front suspension that they do in ALMS and Nurburgring 24hrs... so they have to stick with our stock car's McPherson struts.
Definitely!

Congrats to Leh and team for placing 2nd class. Must have been quite the experience Leh to run at Lemans!!! All the best! Will be at Mid Ohio next weekend so expect a strong race from you.....
