The "car-racing fan community" gathers every year at circuit la Sarthe in Le Mans, France. This time for the 75th race. More than 250.000 spectators form this unique group of racing fans that gathers every year at this famous circuit.

June 17 2PM, an hour before the 24hour race of Le Mans ends it started to rain !

Due to the strong rainfall that flooded the circuit in the last hour of the race, the Race Directors decided to neutralize the race and deployed the safety cars for 50 minutes. It was a decision that didn't affect the outcome of the race. The first priority of all teams was to finish the race safely. The team of Peugeot No.8 had a huge warning, when the engine displayed some problems in the last hour. But 22 minutes before the checkered flag, Sebastian Bourdais was able to enter the track and ensure the second place finish for Team Peugeot Total and his teammates Sarrazin and Lamy. The French prototype finished 8 laps behind the Audi, but can be proud of a strong podium finish in its first 24 Hour entry. Pescarolo Sport finishes on the podium for the third year in a row, this year with the driver lineup of Collard, Dumas, and Boullion. This is the second consecutive win for this exact driver lineup from Audi Sport.
