Race - McNish World title

Scotland has another world champion this morning after Audi’s Allan McNish clinched his first World Endurance Drivers Championship title along with team mates Tom Kristensen and Loic Duval.

Yesterday’s 6 hour race in Shanghai was won by the Number 1 Audi R18 e-tron quattro of Andre Lotterer, Benoit Treluyer and Marcel Fassler, but third place was enough for the Number 2 Audi, driven by McNish, Kristensen and Duval, to claim the FIA World Endurance Drivers Championship.

That means Scots have now won a total of TEN world titles on 2, 3 and 4 wheels since Fergus Anderson scored our very first world title success in the 350cc motor cycle racing world championship way back in 1953.
