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