LeMans » Minassian: Peugeot 908 fastest sportscar ever!

Not only does Peugeot have the fastest sportscar ever in the 908 HDi, argues Nicolas Minassian, but Le Mans glory in 2009 has removed the monkey off the Lion's back - so watch out in 2010!

Speed is not everything at Le Mans. Reliability and good strategy is also an imperative. Because remember when Audi last raced the R8 at Le Mans is was 16mph SLOWER down the straights than the Pescarolo's (217 v 201) and were actually struggling to overtake the GT1 cars down the straight. But won through their legendary reliability and superior strategy over the Pescas.

Having great pace is vital. But you still need the reliability to keep that pace going for the whole 24 hours, along with good strategy. Because Peugeot in the first season with 908 threw away the win through a bad tyre call.
