Peugeot vs. Audi...

It looks like Le Mans 2007 will be a showdown between to great national marks: Audi of Germany versus France's Peugeot. I think this will be a race to remember indeed.
Let battle begin...


Peugeot Start On Pole At Le Mans

Peugeot will start from pole in Saturday's Le Mans 24 Hours race.

After a 14-year break from the endurance classic, the Peugeot driven by Sebastien Bourdais, Pedro Lamy and Stephane Sarrazin will head the field.

Rain throughout the second qualifying session on Thursday meant none of the teams improved on their opening times around the 13.629km circuit.

Audi's Allan McNish will start second alongside co-drivers Dindo Capello and seven-times winner Tom Kristensen.

The second Peugeot of Nicolas Minassian and debutants Jacques Villeneuve and Marc Gene is third, with reigning champions Frank Biela, Emmanuele Pirro and Marco Werner in fourth for Audi.
