Le Mans: a mental marathon

Karun Chandhok’s first Le Mans 24 Hours was a steep learning curve and mentally the toughest race he’s done, but it’s left a lasting impression The results weren’t surprising at the Le Mans 24 hours this year. Audi filled all three podium spots and the Toyotas, though faster than many expected, didn’t last the distance. The second privateer over the line in sixth overall was the JRM racing HPD...
