Scotland's Allan McNish co-piloted the first diesel-powered car to win a major sports car race as Audi won the Sebring 12 Hours in Florida.

The victory was all the more extraordinary as McNish and his Audi co-drivers Tom Kristensen and Rinaldo Capello had to start from the pit lane.

I'm actually really surprised this wasnt done before. Audi has a very good racing program, and doing it with diesel is pretty cool.
