The sister car no. 7 driven by Dindo Capello, Tom Kristensen and Allan McNish came third. And the face of GT racing will change as a result, as Peugeot has announced that it will field a similar, V12 diesel next year.
The Pescaraolo Sport team's car no.17 came second, four laps behind with Eric Helary, Franck Montagny and Sebastien Loeb driving.
Following a titanic battle in the GT1 class, fourth across the line came the class-winning Corvette Racing's Corvette C6.R no. 64 driven by Oliver Gavin, Olivier Beretta and Jan Magnussen, while Aston Martin Racing's no. 007 DBR9 came second in GT1 with Thomas Enge, Andrea Piccini and Darren Turner. The second DBR9 no. 009 could have won the class had it not been for a clutch problem.
In LMP2, the No.25 RML Lola AER of Thomas Erdos, Mike Newton and Andy Wallace won following fierce attrition -- the Lola led the class for most of the race. Behind it were the No.24 Binnie Motorsports Lola Zytek of William Binnie, Allen Timpany and Yojiro Terada, and the No.27 Miracle Motorsports Courage AER of John Macaluso, Andy Lally and Ian James.
GT2 was won by No.81, Team LNT's Panoz Esperante driven by the all-British team of Tom Kimber-Smith, Richard Dean, and Lawrence Tomlinson. Second place was won by the No.83 Seikel Motorsport Porsche 911 GT3 RSR driven by Lars Erik Nielsen, Pierre Ehret, and Domink Farnbacher, which suffered a technical problem that snatched victory away from the leading car.
