Audi clean-sweeps Le Mans 24 Hours

Audi completely dominated the 2000 Le Mans 24 Hours. The Ingolstadt marque's trio of open-topped R8 sports prototypes took a one-two-three in the French endurance classic, emulating a feat previously achieved only by Ford, Peugeot and Porsche.

The winning driver line-up consisted of first-time victors and former Audi touring car stalwarts Frank Biela and Emanuele Pirro, plus 1997 Le Mans winner Tom Kristensen. The trio beat the reformed 1998 winning line-up of Laurent Aiello, Stephane Ortelli and 2000 pole-sitter Allan McNish into second place by a full lap. Audi's third R8, crewed by ex-Formula 1 driver Michele Alboreto, Christian Abt and Rinaldo Capello finished third overall, three laps down on the winning car, but 21 laps ahead of the first non-Audi in fourth.
