The leading #2 Peugeot has just retired from the Le Mans 24 Hours with what looks like an engine failure.
Franck Montagny was on his out-lap from a scheduled fuel-stop when flames and smoke started pouring from the right side exhaust of his 908 at Tertre Rouge.
He tried to get the car back to the pits, but was forced to park it up at the side of the Mulsanne straight. He has remained by the side of car, still hoping to find a way to get it back to the pits, but the failure looks terminal.
Montagny, Nicolas Minassian and Stephane Sarrazin had been a lap clear of the #9 and #8 Audis, but were already the last remaining Peugeot running trouble free.
Stephane Sarrazin, who was due in the #2 car next, told AUTOSPORT: "We are really disappointed, we were controlling the pace - but it's Le Mans...
"We don't know exactly what the problem was, but it is the engine. It was sudden, there was no warning."
Timo Bernhard now leads the race in the #8 R15, just over two minutes clear of Benoit Treluyer in the #9 car. The #1 908 is two laps behind in third place, but Peugeot boss Olivier Quesnel does not expect the team to be able to challenge the remaining Audis.
"I don't think we can do so many things," said Quesnel. "We are going to push a lot with car #1, but I don't think it will work."
He added that he didn't yet know the cause of the #2 car's failure: "We don't know, I don't know anything yet."
