A stunning upset at the 24-hours Le Mans race this weekend resulted in Audi monopolizing the podium and claiming the top three spots in the race.

For Peugeot, the results could not have been worse - none of its cars finished the race. The heavily-favored Team Peugeot had claimed pole position, along with the second and third starting positions with its three 908 Hdi FAP racers. A fourth 908 from Team Oreca held the number four spot. All four cars broke down during the race and had to be retired.

Overall victory went to the three Audi Sport R15 TDIs - with drivers Romain Dumas, Timo Bernhard and Mike Rockenfeller driving the winning car by completing 397 laps around the Circuit de la Sarthe track at Le Mans.

The Pegeot 908 Hdi FAP sports a V12 diesel that makes it quicker around the track than the V10 diesel-powered R15 TDI. But Le Mans is an endurance race and reliability proved to be the most decisive factor this weekend.
