1994 - Le Mans - Problems for the Dauer Porsches
The factory Dauer Porsche LM (Mauro Baldi, Yannick Dalmas and Hurley Haywood) crawls into the pits with some trouble with the driveshaft. It was later found out that Dalmas finished his shift too close on the fuel, and only just made it to the pit with the help of marshals. The sister Dauer Porsche (Hans-Joachim Stuck, Thierry Boutsen and Danny Sullivan) goes into for a driver change with Sullivan going out to do his stint. Then Sullivan's Porsche launches him into a spin at the Ford Chicane as a result of a puncture. It would take the Porsche about 12 minutes to limp back to the pits.





1997 - Le Mans - Two major fires at the Mulsanne 'bosse.'
The works Porsche 911 GT1 was leading with a decent margin by 2pm on Sunday. Around after 1.40pm, Ralf Kelleners jumped into the Porsche after a pit stop. He would drive for an other stint, only for the Porsche to catch fire at the Mulsanne hump. The leader stops on the Mulsanne straight with the rear well alight. Kelleners jumped from the car and waved to the fire crews to quickly put out the fire. They did, but not before the back of the car was gutted (somewhat like the team) At 2.01pm, the Gulf Davidoff McLaren F1 GTR car with Andrew Gilbert-Scott (partnered by Ray Bellm and Masanori Sekiya) at the wheel had caught fire on the Mulsanne straight, the fire took hold of the rear and burnt out the engine area. This incident looked very similar to that suffered by the sister car of #40, in Thursday's qualifying when an oil line fractured.
