Allan McNish Looking for 24 Hour Win

1 Mins read

Allan McNish is looking to regain his Le Mans 24 Hours crown from Peugeot this year as Audi step up their development work.

McNish will join Tom Kristensen and Dindo Capello once again in the Audi R15 which sees it’s second year in the 24 hour race.

“Winning the Le Mans 24 Hours is Audi’s main objective this year, Audi has finished on the rostrum every year since making its Le Mans debut in 1999, but having won eight times, last year’s third place was an under par performance.”

Last year saw the Peugeot 908 HDi FAP take the win with David Brabham, Marc Gené and Alexander Wurz at the wheel, McNish finished in third place behind the second 908 of Franck Montagny, Sébastien Bourdais and Stéphane Sarrazin.

“Audi and I have the same desire, to go back to France this year and win. But it will be a difficult challenge against Peugeot and Aston Martin.”

“We’ll need to be at our top level but with Tom and Dindo in my car, plus our team-mates in the other two Audis, I know we have the best driver line-up, team personnel and car in the form of the latest specification Audi R15 to do the job.”
