First Published Jun 15 2014 11:13 pm • Last Updated Jun 15 2014 11:14 pm

Le Mans, France • Marcel Fassler, Andre Lotterer and Benoit Treluyer overcame turbocharger problems to drive Audi to its 13th title at the 24 Hours of Le Mans on Sunday.

It was the trio’s third victory in the world’s most famous endurance race. Their Audi No. 2 finished three laps ahead of Audi No. 1 driven by Lucas di Grassi, Marc Gene and defending champion Tom Kristensen. Audi has now won 10 of the last 11 races at Le Mans, including the last five.

"We did like in 2011," Treluyer told Eurosport. "We stayed calm and attacked when we needed to."

Sebastien Buemi, Anthony Davidson and Nicolas Lapierre took third place in Toyota No. 8, five laps off the pace. Pole-sitter Kazuki Nakajima’s Toyota No. 7 retired in the 15th hour while leading because of an electrical problem.

In its return to Le Mans after a 16-year absence in the top category, Porsche fell out of contention in the 22nd hour
