Audi 1-2 at Lime Rock

After Lola's 1-2 finish at Mid-Ohio in May, Audi hit back in style with a 1-2 finish of their own at Lime Rock to take their third victory of the season

Marco Werner/JJ Lehto won the race with their teammates Frank Biela/Emanuele Pirro just behind them, the duo seeing off a late-race challenge by Butch Leitzinger/James Weaver in their Lola which ended when a cable throttle broke, dropping them to twelfth place.

P2 saw the Jeff Bucknum/Chris McMurray Courage C-65 lead its class all day to take class honours and a ninth place finish overall.

GT1 was another 1-2 result for the Corvette C6-R team, Olivier Beretta/Oliver Gavin leading home teammates Ron Fellows/Johnny O'Connell by two laps, with the Terry Borcheller/Johnny Mowlem Saleen S7R a further lap behind with the Andrea Bertolini/Fabio Babini Maserati MC12 close behind them.

Finally, in GT2 it was a Porsche benefit as it filled the top five places in the class, with victory going to Romain Dumas/Timo Bernhard by a lap over Patrick Long and Jord Bergmeister.
