Third time lucky as Peugeot break Le Mans curse

In GT2, finally, a tremendous tussle saw Ferrari ultimately prevail over Porsche, with the Scuderia locking out nine of the final top ten places as the Risi Competizione entry of Jaime Melo, Pierre Kaffer and ex-F1 ace Mika Salo crossed the line two laps clear of the chasing #97 BMS Scuderia Italia piloted by Fabio Babini, Matteo Malucelli and Paolo Ruberti. Third place went to the second Risi effort of Tracy Krohn, Nic Jönsson and Eric van de Poele.

Well done to Peuegot, now you'd better put in an entry next year so Audi can sort out the issues with the R15 and kick your butts next time. Odd how the Audi boys seemed happier with their lot in third than the French squad did in second... PS, I still won't buy another French car!
