There's been an accident 10 minutes into the race and an Allan Simonsen (Aston Martin driver) has passed away.

May his soul rest in peace.

Audi has won the Le Mans 24 hour yet again.

Quote:
Tom Kristensen, Allan McNish and Loic Duval took a commanding victory in a Le Mans 24 Hours that was overshadowed by the death of Danish driver Allan Simonsen early in the race.

For Kristensen it was a ninth win in the race and extended the record he already held. McNish took his third Le Mans win while Duval, who put the car on pole last Wednesday, claimed success in the race for the first time.

Audi has now won the event for 12 of the last 14 years.

Duval assumed the lead in the #2 R18 e-tron quattro in the seventh hour when the Benoit Treluyer/Andre Lotterer/Marcel Fassler #1 car, which had held the advantage from the start, spent 12 laps in the pits while an alternator problem was fixed.

Allan Simonson's crash. May he R.I.P

He was driving the number 95 Aston Martin Vantage. This was his 7th Le Mans.

Appears to have over-corrected and lost control. However, it also looks like there could have been a tyre failure, resulting in the loss of control. An official cause has not been posted as yet.

It concerns me that a crash like this resulted in a death. Whatever the cause was, the driver should not have died.
They would need to focus and maybe re-evaluate the safety of the cars.
