    The Le Mans 24-Hour endurance race Live.


    audi-r18-e-tron-quattro-2_560x420.jpg
    After 14 hours, the number one Audi with Germany's Andre Lotterer at the wheel was more than two minutes ahead of the number two driven by twice winner Allan McNish.
    The number four Audi was in third place, ahead of the number 12 Toyota-powered Lola.
    Moments a huge crash at the five hour mark involving Anthony Davidson, Nicolas Lapierre in the number seven Toyota petrol-hybrid had taken the lead from Audi's number one R18 diesel-hybrid driven at the time by fellow Frenchman Treluyer.
    The pair swapped places more than once before the Toyota racer made the move stick.
    The race can viewed live in right now at http://www.dailymotion.com.
    Some info about the Audi R18 and Audi R series Diesel TDI which has been ruling Le Mans for the past 8 years.
    Despite the capacity reduction, the 3.7L V6 is claimed to develop more than 397 kilowatts (532 bhp) of power. This is less than the outgoing R15, but the V6 engine's fuel consumption will more than likely be lower than that of the outgoing V10 engine on the R15.

    RajaPraveen, I didn't know that you were fond of this, I just received a message from Vicky Chandok, ( yes the father of Karun ) as Karun is driving that race :)
    and if things fall into place as I think they will, both Vicky and Karun maybe (touchwood) members of RAID101 :D

    ^^ for a 24 hour race, its a big big big deal! These guys go thru gearbox changes, and suspension changes during a pit stop.. Its an ordeal for man, machine and the entire team.

    Imaging driving in stints of 4 hours, and that too you cannot sleep, since the race result is a combination of all 4-6 drivers. Its the most gruelling test of endurance and performance.

    No wonder, real world use technology in passenger cars actually benefits from such events more.
