Kawasaki is now the first manufacturer in ten years time to win this race three times in a row. Let alone winning the race, the team also set a new distance record, which is the icing on the cake.
Spearheading Nissan's dominant entry to the famous endurance race, on June 16/17, will be the hugely innovative, experimental racing car - the Nissan DeltaWing - which aims to change the face of motor racing by completing the Le Mans 24 Hours using half the fuel and half the tire material of a conventional LMP racer.
The LMP2 class of the 2011 Le Mans 24 Hours was dominated by Nissan power. The winning Greaves Motorsport Zytek-Nissan and Signatech’s Oreca-Nissan in the runner-up spot flew the flag for the Japanese manufacturer at the blue riband endurance race.
