Petit Le Mans

Feast your eyes upon this shiny piece of information.

Peugeot on Pole in Atlanta with NEW QUALIFYING RECORD!!

It's a time of 1:06.242.  McNish's Audi which was just really hooked up yesterday got a 1:06.327, but it took Sarrazin several more laps before he managed to tip it.  Full qualifying times here.

That means that the full starting grid looks like this:

Peugeot start on pole in their 07 numbered car with Minassian at the wheel.  Sarrazin and Klien will take over (probably in that order) later in the race.

I was going to post this last night after qualifying, but my timing screen bodged completely - clearly it didn't want to accept that Peugeot had just beaten the record - and that coupled with confusing commentary which was about 30 seconds behind.. well...  Let's just say I wanted to be completely sure that what I thought I'd heard the commentators saying, was correct.

For those who don't know, Petit Le Mans or American Le Mans Series (ALMS) is a series of races that are 1000miles or a maximum of 10hours long.  Road Atlanta, Georgia (USA) is the 10th round of this series (I think).  Not entirely sure how it all works, because I think they just tour America... but they had a round at Silverstone (UK) where there were two Peugeots but both cars suffered damage there, which is why only one is in this race.

McNish is alright, but not when he's threatening my pretties, so I like that he's behind haha.
