Flags about to drop on Petit Le Mans

Well the flags are about to drop on the Petit Le Mans race at Road Atlanta. The big surprise for everyone is that Audi wasn’t set to compete in the road race at the onset of the season. However, after a season of mixed results with a season-opening win at the 12 Hours of Sebring followed by a crushing defeat at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

As a result Audi announced late in the summer that they had every intention of contending their incredible winning streak of 9 wins at Road Atlanta. However, as the rain clouds continue to hang overhead of Atlanta, the weight of the qualifying session must be hanging over Audi’s team right now. We’ll be watching, hoping to see Audi pull out a win as the qualifying line-up is:

P1 – Peugeot

P2 – Peugeot

P3 – Audi

P4 – Audi

With the weather as a factor, maybe the cars with 4 rings will find themselves right at home? With McNish and Kristensen we’re thinking there’s a great chance!
