The 24 Hours at LeMans is shaping up to be a really competitive race this year at the hands of an unlikely racing technology powering the 2 leading teams, Audi and Peugeot – diesel. Audi has been dominating the ALMS for 2 seasons, going undefeated in their first year out with a diesel powered race car. Bluetec is coming to the U.S. by years end, hopefully, and we’ll get to enjoy the benefits of great performance and fuel consumption.
Normally I would be pulling for Audi but in honor of Sarkozy’s victory this week I will be rooting for the French. I am scheduled to be in Milan the week of Jun 11, am hoping I can make it over for some of the race week activities.
