2011 24 Hours of LeMans - Corvette C6R Onboard Lap
A Lap and a half aboard the GTE Pro Class-winning Corvette C6R in the
morning at the 2011 running of the 24 Hours of Lemans. Olivier Beretta
behind the wheel. On the second lap, Olivier pushes too hard trying to
catch a BMW with fresh tires and runs off into the tire wall at Arnage. You
can see he is starting to really push hard at Mulsanne (It was only his
second lap of the stint). Sorry the sound is so loud...Corvettes are just
2011 24 Hours of Le Mans: Allan McNish Talks About His Accident with the Audi R18 TDI
During the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Audi R18 TDI driven by Audi Sport
driver Allan McNish was destroyed in an accident near the fabled Dunlop

TRUTH IN 24 II - Every Second Counts
The Le Mans 24 Hours are a legend. They are mentioned in the same breath as
the Rallye Monte Carlo, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500.
Since 1923, hundreds of thousands of motorsport enthusiasts have been
flocking to La Sarthe year by year to experience the one-day race. To watch
the protagonists in their sports cars battle for each place and each meter
of tarmac with bated breath. The drivers cover 4,800 kilometers in 24 hours
- almost as many as the Formula One racers in a whole year. Every Le Mans
winner has gone down in history. The three Audi drivers Andr‚Äö
Lotterer, Beno≈ít Tr‚Äöluyer and Marcel F‚Äûssler did so in a
special way with the triumph they achieved in 2011. The film TRUTH IN 24 II
documents the tenth and arguably most emotional triumph of the brand with
the four rings at this sports car classic. After two Audi R18 TDI cars have
retired following spectacular accidents, the remaining Audi fights a
dramatic battle for overall victory with the three Peugeot 908 cars ? which
the Audi trio ultimately decides in its favor with a narrow margin of 13
seconds. The film captures the entire drama of the fourth-narrowest running
of the Le Mans 24 Hours ? with intimate insights into the team of Audi
Sport and breath-taking pictures.

I heard the screeching tires and the impact from my office, and grabbed the
Day-amn! This graduate of the Lance Briggs School of Hi-Performance Driving
had hit the retaining wall so hard, it sheared the spokes right off the rim
of one of the wheels. Steel and rubber doughnut, anyone?
Clear, dry road, gentle curve, wide, well-marked lanes, beautiful, mild
50-degree Friday morning -- how do they continue to do it? Oh, well, as
long as they do, you'll see it here first.
I'll let you be surprised with --- the REST --- of the story. Watch, enjoy,
and if you're feeling a little schadenfreude for a Vette owner with too
much money and too little common sense, you're human.
