Audi e-tron Quattro Triumphs at Le Mans for the 4th Time in a Row: 2013 Le Mans Results
For the 12th time in the brand’s history and the fourth consecutive time, Audi has won overall at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The No. 2 Audi e-tron Quattro was driven to victory by Loïc Duval, Tom Kristensen and Allan McNish. This win extends Kristensen’s record to nine Le Mans wins. He dedicated the victory to fellow Danish driver Allan Simonsen who’s died from injuries sustained in an accident on the race’s fourth lap.
The second place spot went to Anthony Davidson, Stéphane Sarrazin and Sébastien Buemi’s No. 8 Toyota TS030 hybrid. Not to be completely shown up by their Audi brethren, the No. 3 Audi e-tron Quattro piloted by Lucas Di Grassi, Marc Gené and Oliver Jarvis took (appropriately enough) third place.
OAK Racing’s No. 35 Nissan-powered Morgan LMP2 driven by Bertrand Baguette, Martin Plowman and Ricardo González took the LMP2 class and finished seventh overall. Porsche’s No. 92 991 GT3-RSR took top honors in the LMGTE-Pro class with Marc Lieb, Richard Lietz and Romain Dumas behind the wheel, finishing 16th overall. And, finally, in the LMGTE-Am class, IMSA Performance’s No. 76 997 GT3-RSR took home the win thanks to drivers Raymond Narac, Christophe Bourret and Jean-Karl Vernay. They finished 26th overall.
