24 Hours of Le Mans was a Crucial Time Period

The previous 24 Hours of Le Mans was a crucial time period, since the Aston Martin team won overall in the race series.

The 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans was the crux of the whole matter as various race car drivers engaged in the face-off of face-offs. The GT car finished with a speed spurt at the end and won the event. 

There were a total of more than a dozen GT cars present and participating on the occasion. One of the vehicles had a power steering leakage which cost it some distance which it failed to cover. It took sixth position among the cars. 

“We have achieved what we were aiming for last year but didn't succeed,” comments Young Driver Team Owner Jan Struve. “We have now fulfilled it and we know that Allan has been cheering for us and smiling down on us and, of course, he has been in our thoughts. This win is extremely important to us and I'm proud of all of the team and drivers. They are all Le Mans winners.”

The Aston Martin racers, Nicki Thiim, Kristian Poulsen and David Heinemeier are all champions and will return home to Denmark for a triumphant reception by wave upon wave of their loyal fans. It was indeed quite a sight to watch these three win the series.

The death of the Danish, Allan Simonsen, the previous year was something that had deeply hurt the people of Denmark who mourned his tragic loss in unison. But with this year’s victory, his soul must be looking on from above and feeling that it has been vindicated. 

The winners dedicated their trophies to Allan and said that his death had caused a huge vacuum which had been partially filled by this victory of sorts. 

“We led the class on and off for the majority of the race,” commented twice-Le Mans GT class-winner and long-standing Aston Martin Racing works driver Darren Turner. “Early on in the race, Corvette showed their pace but the plan was to stay close but out of trouble and to use a triple stint strategy to jump them in the pits. However, the rain came and interrupted our plans and we were left with a new plan – to pick them off one-by-one and take the race lead.”

“The Corvettes had troubles and the Porsches dropped back leaving us and the #51 Ferrari swapping places at the front numerous times. We were leading and Bruno was on a charge when the power steering issue brought us into the pits.”

It had been a battle to the finish line as the cars fended with each other bumper to bumper. The competition was tough and cutthroat indeed as the sharp turns and whizzing and zooming speeds became ever greater with each passing millisecond. 

Each race car driver was in it for the sheer sake of it. And while tempers were high as they all were pumped full of adrenaline (and of course that male hormone testosterone) a level of professionalism was shown that was missing from ordinary life. 

Finally, when the flags were waved as the cars rushed past the finish line, there was thunderous applause and cheers for the winners. Allan will not be forgotten for his sacrifice and may his soul rest in peace! 

“We’ve seen both sides of motor racing this weekend,” comments Team Principal John Gaw. “The #95 team has long deserved this win and there is a real sense of poetic justice. On the other hand, with cars #97 and #99, we have seen how a very small issue can end the race for the teams that have shown they have everything required to win this race, it just didn’t happen on the day.

 

“The #99 car drivers have tasted the cruelest side but have dealt with it well and have shown real sporting spirit throughout the weekend. Now we move on and focus on the second half of the World Endurance Championship and look to take as many points from each round as we can.”
