The Le Mans 24 Hours and Endurance
Oreca got to within less than two hours of a dream podium finish in the 2010 Le Mans 24 Hours, only for the Peugeot curse to strike one last time and send the car crewed by popular home-grown trio Nicolas Lapierre, Olivier Panis and Loïc Duval into a disappointing retirement.
Having matched the three 'works' 908 HDi FAPs during practice and qualifying, Oreca entered the 78th edition of the race dubbed 'the hardest in the world' to win in the frame of mind that anything was possible, and after rebuffing an early Audi challenge from a feisty Allan McNish and following retirement for the #3 Peugeot and a hefty delay for the #1 car, the brightly-liveried #4 machine held second place heading into night but retired an hour-and-a-half from the end of the race.
