Le Man’s legend, Emanuele Pirro, talks about ALMS

The American Le Mans Series (ALMS)

Emanuele Pirro, Frank Biela, and Marco Werner made history by becoming the first drivers to win the Le Mans 24-hour race with the Audi R10 TDI (turbo direct injection) diesel-powered car.

Pirro has enjoyed nine times on the podium. This would give Pirro a strategic advantage in racing the 24-hour Lemans.

Listen as Le Man’s legend Pirro talks about racing the Lemans, and the difference between driving a gasoline car vs. diesel.

And, what is the biggest waste of time for Pirro?
