June 12, 2011 by staff
2011 24 Hours Of Lemans, André Lotterer has taken the No. 2 Audi R18 across the finish line at the end of a remarkable 24 Hours of Le Mans, beating Simon Pagenaud for only 13 seconds in one of the most closed in the history of the legendary race resistance. Audi may have feared he had lost the race in time. Lotterer need to pit twice in the last 60 minutes to make sure I could do the finish, and while the first stop with 55 minutes still on the clock without worrying was the second stop was more alarming.
Both Pagenaud Lotterer and faced the end of the round, with only 34 seconds between them, but while the Peugeot No.9 only fueled the Audi Lotterer chosen to give a final set of Michelin tires for the final 26 minutes.
The cost of tires Audi change time, and cut the heart-stoppingly Lotterer of thin lead in half, but sat on his head and he began to put his fresh rubber to good use and get away from Pagenaud initially lose more time Peugeot to man.
The light was never really comfortable, and the race was close enough for the ACO to avoid the tradition of the ceremonial last lap for the last lap at full running speed and a complete turn around to stop all Circuit Sarthe.
Like any 24-hour race last hour was full of joy and anguish. Robertson Racing – husband and wife Andrea and David Robertson David Murray took the final podium position GTEAm class, through the JMB Racing Ferrari in the early hours of the competition final.

Nissan Signatech finished second at the end of a difficult 24 hours that included three holes for the team of Franck Mailleux, Lucas Ord?? Ez and Soheil Ayari, who took the car across the finish line, Scott Tucker Level 5 Motorsport squad completed the class podium.
After seeing how the ruling class had lost when his No. 74 car crash on Sunday morning Corvette Racing won GTEPro – could say that a year later than it should have done – ahead of the AF Corse and third BMW No.56 M3.
Another GTEAm Corvette won, this time the French team Larbre competition. Team’s second car, a Porsche finished second, surviving a late twist in Arnage, with the Robertson Racing Ford GT in third place, the U.S. team to take advantage of the attrition rate in the lowest class.
