The 24 Hours of Le Mans: Race Evolution Through the Years

Here's a very cool promotional video for the 2012 Le Mans race:

I like it how the editor mixed footage from older and newer races and managed to kick it up a notch every step of the way.

After failing to win in the last 2 years, Peugeot decided to pull out of this year's race. Audi seems to have cornered Le Mans, winning 10 of the last 12 events. Toyota and Nissan will be their closest competition this year. Check out the flying start with the rear kicking out at 0:30 - wouldn't it be awesome to start your Monday morning commute like that?
