Published by Mr. C

We're at the halfway mark in this years 24 Hours of Le Mans race, and things are starting to get interesting. After almost twelve hours of Peugeot domination, it looks like Audi might manage to stage something of a comeback during the cool of the summer night.

As the race reaches the 12 hour mark, only 3 minutes and 13 seconds splits the race leader from the chasing Audi's. One tiny mistake, or technical problem from the frontrunner could blow this battle wide open.

Although not dramatic, the first half of the race was eventful, with plenty of incidents bringing out the safety cars and delaying the racing. Thus far the dry weather has held, although a small threat of rain hangs over the remainder of the race.

Here are some useful links to begin with, I'm sure there will be more in the comments below:
