Peugeot Motorsport is in its best shape for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, as they scored a one-two finish at the 1000 Km of Spa Francorchamps this past weekend.

Although starting from way back of the grid, Peugeot 908s no. 7 and no. 9 quickly got their acct together and climbed up the ladder. From 12th place, Alexander Wurz, in the Peugeot No.7, moved up to 3rd at the end of the first lap! Meanwhile, Sébastien Bourdais moved up to 4th spot in car No.9 and Franck Montagny, who started in 48th position, overtook an incredible 38 cars in one lap. Luck might have been on their side a bit, but still, pretty amazing performance.

This win was specially delicious as they overtook their main rival Audi R18 and sent it back to the third place, where it stayed until the end of the race. So Le Mans 24 hours will be the race for Audi to take revenge!
