Le Mans or Bust

Silent assassin

No change in the last hour and the two Audis slowed down for a formation finish past the chequered flag. This year’s race will go in down in history as the arrival of the modern diesel performance engine, the nearly silent Audis were the talking point of the weekend and their fuel economy allowed them to run two to three laps longer before refuling meaning that over the course of the 24 hours they spent less time stationary, enhancing their speed advantage.

    But we all know of one diesel that didn’t get past the start line, since it was too busy trying to pick up a fare!
