Motor racing: McNish's early push at Le Mans
Audi's quest for a first Le Mans victory for a hybrid car stayed on track in the opening stages of the 24-hour race. With one hour gone, the hybrid R18 Audis were first and second after the German Andre Lotterer led cleanly away from pole position in the No 1 Audi e-tron Quattro. The two-time Le Mans winner Allan McNish jumped Toyota's Stphane Sarrazin off the line and then took second place from Loic Duval, in an Audi R18 Ultra.
