If you have a hard time fathoming what it must be like to drive in a 24-hour endurance race, you're going to want to watch the video below. You'll see an
Audi R18 e-tron quattro – the fastest cars on the race track at
Le Mans, by a smidge, over the similarly hybrid-powered
Toyota TS 030 machines – lap the famed French track after the sun has gone down.
Keep in mind that this video is merely three minutes long, and yet the unflinching dedication shown by driver Tom Kristensen is clearly on display. As an added bonus, we've also included a night lap of the circuit in a
Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1. Pay close attention about 20 seconds into the second video and you'll see just how
exciting this kind of competition can be.
