McNish / Kristensen / Capello triumph at Le Mans

After a titanic battle with the Peugeot 908 of Jacques Villeneuve and team, Audi won yet another Le Mans victory in their diesel powered R10.

Despite the Peugeot's ability to ultimately post quicker lap times, the Audi's better fuel economy, quicker pit stops and superior performance in the wet ensured that Scotsman McNish's Audi was able to keep a 1 lap buffer between them and the chasing Peugeot. Changeable weather conditions and more frequent fuel stops prevented the 908 from building a significant lead, and even a colllision between the #2 Audi and #32 Zytek late in the race could not deny Audi the victory in what was a tremendously close and exciting race.

The team at Rio Prestige would like to congratulate Nish on a famous victory that sees him firmly established in the racing drivers hall of fame with fellow Scots such as Jackie Stewart, Jim Clark, Dario Franchitti, Colin Macrae and David Coulthard.
