Despite two major crashes during the first eight hours of the race, eliminating two of the three works car, Audi were once again victorious!
Only four of the ten entrants in the GTE Am class were classified as finishers and victory went to the no.50 Larbre Corvette (20th overall) with the no.70 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR in second, while the no.68 Robertson Racing Ford GT finished in a fine third place.
Obviously it was the LM P1 class struggle that the spectators had come to see, and here they would not be disappointed. Apart from the two horrific Audi accidents, the remaining no.2 Audi saw off repeated attacks from the squadron of Peugeots and in the end it was down to a matter of just 700 yards (thanks for the calculation Jock!) that separated the winner from the no.9 Peugeot.
