It s Electric! Audi E-tron On At Le Mans

Next Chapter

already 10 hours of running and that’s just through and qualifying here at the Circuit De La in France. With three itching to get out and a lap taking three and a to four minutes, a single lap costs a minimum of 12 minutes – so seems like a lot of time eaten up very rapidly.

But the six of track time on Wednesday and a four on Thursday have us a better picture of how the teams are and the answer is that pretty everyone is performing. The field is tightly packed, more so it’s been for years. We a storming race in prospect.

This is no bluster: yes, the and Toyotas are still faster at the front, but after the times the three qualifying sessions aggregated all of the serious LMP1 and runners behind them are by just 12 seconds. That’s to 29th position: 22 cars, the Deltawing. It’s unprecedented.

It shows that, factory aside, the rules seem to be all the privateer LMP1s are within seconds of each other, by the top 14 LMP2s within four

3:30s has always been about as the lap-time that the ACO LMP1 cars to achieve. once again that’s smashed by Audi and Toyota – but by two of the petrol-powered privateers. Both the HPD ARX-03a and #12 Rebellion B12/60 have dipped in under magic time, which give something for the factories to about.

They’ll be no cruising up front, these two – plus the remaining hordes – will be ready to off any stragglers.

In GTE it’s a similar Luxury Racing have their form and taken with a startlingly quick that’s well within the mark.

It’s the new Aston Vantage V8 that’s taken followed by the #74 Corvette, #71 AF Corse and #73 Corvette.

Right behind is a of Porsches, headed by the Pro-Am Flying Lizard car 911. All of the GTE are covered by just eight

The quartet of R18s whistle at unearthly speeds, eating up zones and traffic alike. actually difficult to comprehend how they are, perhaps by that absence of noise. teleport to the end of straights; corners register; they warp traffic.

They’re going to be very to beat.

The Toyotas are almost as but their petrol units them seem more than the alien Audis.

But as for, the Toyota team been right up there the R18s, and even if they been able to make a bid for they have split the on the grid: they line up and fifth, bringing colour to the three rows of the rolling against the black and white of Audi.

It’s been a introduction to Le Mans for the JRM team: HPD-03a has been up on jacks far often than the team The latest problem has been kerbs damaging the gearbox – the missed the evening Qualifying 2 putting in just a shakedown lap at the end ahead of the final night 3 period.

But a solid time has been and the positive is that they from the Strakka car that a whole boat-load of time to Don’t forget that be carrying the live feed the JRM team throughout the weekend: be posting up details on that before the race.

But when the HPD in one piece at least it’s the choice: even in these sessions there’s the combination of pushing hard and constant The former can lead to self-induced the latter to heart-stopping last-minute being the only thing you and a wall.

Already we’ve had multiple Giancarlo Fischicella wiped out the #51 AF requiring AF Corse to send up a new car from their base; Pescarolo LMP1s have front-end damage, as did the #29 Gulf Lola Coupé and #75 Prospeed meaning all these teams large chunks of valuable time.

After the frenzy of the couple of days, today is a day in tracks terms at least. The will be swarming as it’s all day to the public, the drivers will be for the parade in Le Mans town and the mechanics will be busy final preparations for the race, the aim to get away from the track and as early as possible.

It’s all about 3pm tomorrow.
