Peugeot endurance racing: RIP

Image

The Audi-Peugeot rivalry at Le Mans has been nothing short of legendary; fierce competition, intense driving, fiery situations, and 2 teams going full on to try to gain victories against each other.

Well all that is over, as Peugeot is dropping the entire endurance racing program, including Le Mans; effective immediately.  Apparently the state of the global economy has taken its toll on the program; not surprising anymore to hear this is it…

I have always rooted fiercly for Audi in these battles…..and have often found myself scorning Peugeot on some of their, well, suspicious tactics.  That being said, i’m very saddened that this competition is now over.  Thanks Peugeot, for competing and for making Le Mans an event worth obsessing over….
