Sarrazin takes LM pole for Peugeot again

leave a comment »

Stephane Sarrazin grabbed pole position for the 24 Hours of Le Mans for Peugeot for the second year in a row with a scintilating lap of 1:22.888, stealing it from Audi’s Allan McNish within the last 30 minutes of the session. Peugeot dominate the top end of the grid, with Nicolas Minassian putting the #7 car 3rd, ahead of the #17 Pescarolo Peugeot and the #9 Peugeot, with Audis #2 and #3 behind. The Lola-Aston Martins of #007 and #008 lead the petrol attack ahead of the 2008-spec Lola-Aston of Speedy Racing Team Sebah, rounding out the top 10, although #007 was damaged in a crash at the very end of the session.

In the other classes, the Porsche of Team Essex led the similar car of Team Goh in the battle for pole in LMP2. GT1 was, as expected, an all-works Corvette affair with #63 beating #64 courtesy of Jan Magnussen, and GT2 pole went to the 911 of the Flying Lizard team, pipping Felbermayr-Proton with their identical machine.
