Audi got their win, 1 and 2.

Toyota at least got a pole position.

And Porsche had a strong showing. Nice job for a first year run.

Le Mans in the 21st century: a bunch of cars drive around for 24 hours, then Audi wins.

They have smaller tank...

Really too bad for Toyota. It sounds like the failed component is rather minor and the fix will take less than a few minutes if they can get the car back. But they can't. I really wish someone to take that sole Japanese winner thing away from Mazda...

Toyota really deserves a win. They've had a rotten 30 years of bad luck and great effort.

It's good news for Toyota, really, they just need to keep at it.. and field a third car.

The problem for Toyota is that this was the easiest year to win; Audis were rather slow and Porsches rather unreliable.

I don't know if they'll have that luck in 2015.

If I were any of the three I'd field 3 cars. Nissan will be there too next year.

Nissan has been rather bullish about their chances from their announcements, they think they can win by 2016, which at this day and age and the level of competition I think will be a hard ask...

I would agree. It has been very hard for anyone (including those spending big coin) to dislodge the incumbent Audi's. Assuming Audi, Toyota, and Porsche are still at it in 2016, Nissan will be the team with the you get program.

In all seriousness, Sniff is one of the few things that I read - of anything, anywhere - where I laugh aloud or chuckle or sometimes tear up laughing about.
