Petit Le Mans may only be fourteen years old but in that time it has grown to become one of the world’s top sports car races.
The 2011 edition was the biggest yet with a massive field of 53 cars allowed to take the start with more having entered but had to qualify to make it into the race. As always, it was a diesel battle up front between the factory giants of Peugeot and Audi.
As it was the final round of the 2011 American Le Mans Series season it was the penultimate round of the ILMC which many teams were taking part in.
