    • Audi takes pole and first row for 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans, can anyone stop them? - Qualifying results

      Audi has flat out dominated every 24 Hours of Le Mans in recent memory. Audi has 10 victories since 2000 and in recent Le Mans races only Peugeot was able to challenge. Well, Peugeot is gone and it seems only Toyota is willing to fight Audi for the overall crown this year. It is going to be difficult as the Audi R18 E-Tron took the pole with the Audi R18 Ultra starting second. The Toyota TS030 Hybrid race car managed to break up the Audi's qualifying in a very respectable 3rd and 5th. Will Audi get its 11th win? The race starts tomorrow and goes through Sunday.

        Only Toyota has a chance to stop them. GTE is going to be interesting though too bad BMW isn't in it.
