    Default 24 Hours of LeMans '08

    Watched about 6 hours of the coverage on Speed, I thought Peugeot would be more competitive but Audi just seemed to work their magic.

    They lost it in the pits - Peugeots spent more than 9:00 minutes longer than did Audi, yet finished ~3:00 behind - Minassian's choice of tires near the 50:00 mark was odd too...

    Too bad for Peugeot teamagain.. Car is twitchy in the rain...

    The Audis were better on fuel also, one more lap on a fuel tank as opposed to the Peugeots..

    But i'M proud of My J. Villeneuve.. They will come back stronger next year..

    Don't ya think Nissan should campaign the GTR? As much as I like Johnny O, I was glad to see the Astons beat the Corvettes.
    Enjoy the Ride

    I don't know how those guys can do 3 hours lap after lap after lap. I was also bummed Jacque Villeneuve didn't get the win but maybe he needs to drive for Audi.

    Jacques is my twin - it's scary how much we look alike, my wife and kids crack up. Right down to the posture. In fact, when we went to the Canadian GP a few years back, I was curious as to why people pointed at me and called me Jacques!

    I never thought I looked like him until that day in Montreal. I am a lifelong fan of Gilles Villeneuve (Jacques dad), but never took to Jacques until recently.

    I was really bummed for him - he seems genuine and he's good looking (since he looks like me, hehe)...get 'em next year JV!!!
