Allan McNish: Spa diary

In his latest bulletin for AUTOSPORT, Allan McNish takes us through his high and lows from the Spa 1000km - the last dress rehearsal before the Le Mans 24 hours, and the race debut for Audi's R18 TDI

Allan McNish and his Audi team-mates had a new toy to play with in this year's Spa-Francorchamps 1000km as the German company's R18 TDI made its race debut at the Belgian circuit.

It was also the final race prior to Le Mans and the first time the two sportscar turbo-diesel superpowers, Audi and Peugeot, had matched up with their new-for-2011 coupes, so there was plenty of talking points going in. Audi's prototype coupe - its first for more than a decade - locked out the first the top three positions on the grid in qualifying, then came the race.
