16Peugeot takes pole at 24 Hours of Le Mans for third straight year

It's mid-June and that means it's time for the 24 Hours of Le Mans again. If the past decade is anything to go by, the number one contenders will again be the factory Audis, which have won eight of the last nine races (all nine if you count the 2003 as the Audi it truly was). For the past two years, the big battle for overall glory has been between the diesel-powered Audi R10 and Peugeot 908, and this year looks to be no different aside from Audi having an all new car, the R15, still with TDI po

The car was being driven by French d

AddAudi R10 TDI gets Pioneering and Innovation Award from Autosport magazine

The all-conquering Audi R10 TDI has been awarded the Pioneering and Innovation Award from the British racing magazine Autosport at their annual awards ceremony. The R10 was the first diesel-powered racer to win the 24 hours of Le Mans as well as going undefeated in the seven races it ran in the American Le Mans Series.
