    Exclamation Peugeot pulls the plug on Le Mans Endurance Racing...

    A sad day for Le Mans racing, I am glad I saw some of those stunning races between the two racing teams, let's hope Toyota puts up a good fight.

    A sad day in motorsport. Peugeot really had something going with that car and the team. The battles in Le Mans over the past seasons would never have been the same without them. Thanks for some great entertainment Peugeot!

    Let's hope Audi stays in there and keep fighting. Le Mans is one of the best things over a year!

    Could not possibly agree more with this. The Caddy/Audi battles never reached the level that Pug/Audi did. Just look at the sheer emotion on the face of Bourdais as his team lost. To give your very all and not be the winner, you could see the level of passion that the entire team had. Now, the fans will NOT get the chance to see Audi vs. Puegeot vs. Porsche vs. Toyota vs. Aston. Would have been THE definition of "epic".
