Audi fans felt their hearts decelerate at this year’s Le Mans 24-Hour race when the #7 Toyota trumped the #1 Audi by 223 seconds. The Toyota TS030 hybrid and the Audi R 18 e-tron Quattro were battling for the title during the grueling endurance race, but Audi simply could not overcome a collision penalty. Remember this Le Mans Ferrari crash?
Just 223 seconds separated the hybrid race cars, Audi and Toyota, but that can mean worlds in endurance racing!
The cars and drivers:
Toyota TS030 hybrid
Driven by: Nicolas Lapierre, Alex Wurz and Kazuki Nakajima
