Analysis of The Winning Car At Le Mans - Pit Stops, Stints etc - by Paul Truswell

Some of you will be as fascinated with this information as we are, some of you will just find it too detailed to bother with - perhaps. If you do find it worth delving into, we'd suggest you print it off and puzzle over it. In this table are many of the answers to help explain how the #7 Bentley won Le Mans. We've highlighted some of the key figures in bold text. We'll try to analyse it tomorrow, June 25 (it's here). For now, it's over to you. How did Capello, Kristensen and Smith win Le Mans?
Thanks Paul Truswell - the master of endurance statistics.
