1998 - 24 uur / hours Le Mans
1998 Was een van de sterkst bezette wedstrijden ooit. Met fabrieksteams van Porsche, BMW, Toyota, Panoz, Nissan, Chrysler en Mercedes was het helft van het startveld al gevuld. De spanning was groot en verrassingen waren niet van de lucht. De grootste was misschien wel de dubbele winst van Porsche.

1998 Was one of the strongest races ever. Factory teams from Porsche, BMW, Toyota, Panoz, Nissan, Chrysler and Mercedes filled half of the starting grid. The race offered lots of suspense and surprises. Not the least maybe the double victory by Porsche.
