2011 24 Hours of Le Mans: Hour Twenty One Update

1 Mins read

Audi continue to dominate hour 21 of the 79th running of the 24 hours of Le Mans with Andre Lotterer slotting in to the driving seat of the no.2 R18 as rain threatens to disrupt the race.

A pretty uneventful hour came to a close with the no.8 Peugeot holding ground while Lotterer looked to lap him, the French team not making it easy for the Audi to continue onwards. While the no.2 car holds strong at the front the no.9 and no.8 Peugeots make up the top three.

Greaves Motorsport continue to lead the LMP2 class with Thomas Kimber-Smith easily in control of the class. the no.26 Signatech Nissan holds second with the Level 5 Lola in third.

The GTEPro class would see a change of leader after the no.51 AF Corse Ferrari came in to the pits for a scheduled stop only to experience problems while trying to pull away. This would hand the lead to the no.73 Corvette in the hands of Antonio Garcia. The no.56 BMw of Dirk Muller moves up to third in class.

GTEAm remains the same with Julien Canal maintaining the advantage in the no.50 Corvette. Jean-Philippe Belloc sits in second place in the Labre competition Porsche followed by the JMB Racing Ferrari.
