Second Audi crashes at 24 Hours of Le Mans

Another massive accident has marred Audi's 79th running of the Le Mans 24 Hour race. Just hours after Audi's Allan McNish suffered a heavy shunt, the sister R18 of Mike Rockenfeller, who had been running second at the time, was involved in an enormous crash between Mulsanne and Indianapolis.


Race control immediately sent out the safety car and recovery trucks and ambulances were quickly on the scene of the accident, which had strewn debris over a wide area.

H.A.R.B. (formerly two wheels are enough)

It was almost a copy of the earlier McNish incident - the Audi was trying to pass a GT car on the inside of a right-hand bend and the GT car refused to take the outside line, resulting first in the Audi going off the track and then contact between the two cars. Audi is being absolutely robbed by drivers in GT cars making poor decisions.
