Le Mans Peugeot Wins Petit Le Mans

I don't know if this race was really covered in Europe but Peugeot and Audi both came out to race the 10 hour Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. The Audi team of McNish and Cappello were dominating the race but McNish spun the car when the big rain hit and Peugeot passed them after they spun which resulted in Peugeot leading under caution when the race was called at 8+ hours due to extreme rain and some portions of the track flooding. Other interesting things, Dyson racing was trying a new fuel (a biobutanol ethanol blend), Drayson racing made an appearance in preparation for running a full schedule in 2010, and the Jaguar XKR GT2 racecar took its first laps on the track.
