24 Hours Of Le Mans: Two Laps Of The Rolex Clock


The challenge of the greatest endurance race in the world, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, is simple: whoever goes furthest wins. However, any suggestion that this contest is merely two laps of the clock is wide of the mark. When the 24-hour Rolex countdown clock begins on Saturday 18 June 2016 at 15:00, the teams will begin their quest to conquer the unrelenting 13.629-kilometre (8.46-mile) Circuit de la Sarthe, combining endurance with speed, while racing not only each other, but also their greatest adversary – time. It is this constant endeavour to defy physical limits and boundaries that binds Rolex so closely together with endurance racing at Le Mans and the FIA World Endurance Championship.

WEC Spa: Audi Sport Quotes


Quotes from Audi’s team following its first victory in the 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) season at Spa-Francorchamps.

Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich (Head of Audi Motorsport): “That was a mad race today. It’s great that in the end we took victory with our number ‘8’ car. Some of our competitors who had previously been leading either retired or lost ground due to issues. While our winners impeccably finished the race, it wasn’t a flawless one for number ‘7.’ Following our experiences from Silverstone, now winning round two was particularly sweet. That’s a good base for Le Mans.”

Having plugged away to get the Gibson 015S to fifth in class, driver Jonny Kane was forced to park the car with just under half the race remaining. “It’s hugely frustrating to retire, especially as the team had done such a brilliant job with smooth pit stops and a strategy that was looking like it would deliver a valuable clutch of points,” says team principal Dan Walmsley. “The telemetry highlighted a rise in oil pressure and it was decided to retire it immediately.”
