@JoeS... I think Audi would actually disagree with you regarding a fast car being fragile.. the R8 was easily the fastest and most reliable car of its time and rarely failed unless through driver error.. I think it was one of the veteran RML drivers that said on the speed coverage that the way Le Mans is run and prepared for these days anything that fails on a car, probably, would fail regardless of the pace run... The fact the Pugs had 3 exact failures but at very different times in the race points to a failed component that for some reason had an unpredictable life (change of supplier maybe?)... after all they did 11, 30 hour tests in the lead up to Le Mans without an engine failure
