Description The 2011 Le Mans 24 Hours was one of the most exciting races for many years.14 seconds separating the winning Audi from the runner up Peugeot.It will also be remembered for two incredible crashes.Audi won the Le Mans 24 Hour despite the loss of two cars to high-speed crashes. Allan McNish and Rockenfeller, both Audi 18 drivers, crashed in 2 separate incidents.Left in the race was only one Audi.To be more specific it was Audi 18TDI with the number 2.It's aim was to win the 10th Le Mans title for the German car maker. They completed 355 laps and beat the Peugeot 908 V8 HDi number 9 with only 13.8 seconds.McNish and Rockenfeller were both uninjured. I only saw MacNish' crash.McNish crashed after his car hit a red Ferrari and went off the track almost flying.Incredible he survived. Several somersault followed by a tremendous crash when he hit barriers.The car ended upside down and it was totally demolished.In the Audi pit I saw the Audi team expecting the worst.The next 25 seconds they kept their breath. Two officials turned over the car, and McNish crawled out of the scrapheap unharmed.The Audi team could hardly believe their eyes.Clapping enthusiastically.With joy.So did the spectators.Rockenfeller touched a slower car between Mulsanne and Indianapolis as he attempted to overtake.
