Stephane Sarrazin heads field
12 June 2009

Peugeot's Stephane Sarrazin snatched pole position for this year's Le Mans 24 Hours last night, after some scintillating competition from Audi’s Allan McNish.

Audi and Peugeot had been battling it out throughout the qualifying sessions, with McNish setting the pace for much of the time.

However, in the second and final session, having been blocked by traffic after setting individual fastest sector times several times, Sarrazin managed to go seven-tenths quicker than the fastest Audi to claim pole position.

The four Peugeot 908s now dominate the front of the grid, and are seplitonly by the R15 Audi of McNish and his co-drivers, who are second.
