Much better race than the results would suggest, with the Muscle Milk HPD only losing a 3rd place in the very last part of the race due to refueling problems in the pits. Both P2 and especially GT very competitive. Hand's BMW was pushed-off the road by a different Ferrari 458 than Baretta, who spun trying to avoid a re-entering Hand.

As Audi used last year's cars, they will probably be just as dominant when this year's models are raced. The HPD's all showed good speed, and as they are new to the teams are capable of rapid development, So potentially very good racing coming, but same story at the front for now.

With Audi deserved that win and Sam they had 3 cars..only two finished on the podium. so couldn't of been that easy.

Great race and i was on the edge of my seat watching the BMW and the Ferrari battle. stunning finish and brilliant driving by hand to get back past after getting knocked off.

great race. well done to all that made it to the end .

Despite the Peugeout aren't here anymore, I couldn't say it was boring, it was full with action, TDI and Petrol cars are more equal now, so it is never easy, moreover this not smooth track appears car breaking. HTDs were competitive.

Congratulations to AUDI winning the race and others in their categories. After few races we'll see the new AUDI and Toyota entering, it will be great.

I would like to see other manufactures step in if Peugeot a nobody in motor-racing was able to build a nice Proto imagine what others could come up with. LMS WEC ALMS has many issues. We should have the GT1 back and run a fully P1 P2 GT1 and GT2 classes again announce the winners of other classes as well after all P1 was only part of story!

"if Peugeot a nobody in motor-racing was able to build a nice Proto imagine what others could come up with."

I guess you're from the US...

There are quite a lot of manufacturers that would like to have their silverware, including Toyota.
