It’s all over

Aston Martin had a cracking race at Le Mans this weekend, and although a third place looked tantalisingly possible near the end, the three cars in front held on to their positions.

No one either at Aston or supporting them seems too disappointed though, as taking the fight to the might of eventual winners Peugeot and last year’s champions Audi was always going to be difficult.

Still, they drove great – most of the time – and here’s hoping they decide to give it another shot next year.

Half of team TG are about to join the traffic outside before heading to the tunnel, while the other half – the jammy beggars – are staying down here for a bar-b-q.

So here’s to next year, and an Aston Martin victory…?

All those who say that aston should enter with a diesel car have a point…..but, however, the aston was definitely the best sounding car there BY FAR!

Alejandro, are you referring to when the Corvettes were weighed down because no one could beat them in a fair race?

You Brits, you proved that you are very complicated people. I can tell that by the fact that you didn’t congratulate Peugeot even ONCE. You will never win Peugeot!

Lola are brilliant, Aston Martin are brilliant. Fingers crossed for next year.

Peugeot fail his first year at Le mans. Why must discuss about Aston Martin first time? It do extremely well. With a bit of luck and lots of money, who knows? In the other hand, if start limiting diesel engines, it seems to be like F1, changing rules like his underpants. Rubissh!!!

That was the first le man I have ever watched.

Too bad Aston didn’t win. Out of all the Euro box badges in the race they were my favs.

Too bad Puegeot don’t put as much money into interior trim as they do LMP car research :)

It may have been a lola chassis but compared to diesels, they are more exciting to watch.

when the diesels went past the camera stations you could barely hear them but when them wailing Aston Martin powered lola’s went by…

Hell, the F430s were more exciting to watch then them puegeots and audis.
