LE MANS, France (AP) - Audi made the best of the rolling start for its three cars to fill the top three spots at the 24 Hours of Le Mans on Saturday.
Defending champion and pole-sitter Andre Lotterer led after two laps in his Audi No. 1, two seconds clear of Loic Duval's Audi No. 3. Allan McNish's Audi No. 2 overtook Stephane Sarrazin's Toyota No. 8 in the opening lap to move into third place.
Audi has won seven of the last eight races at Le Mans. Peugeot was able to disrupt the dominance of the German manufacturer in 2009.
Toyota is returning to the world's most famous endurance race after a 13-year absence.
The race ends Sunday afternoon.
