AUDI'S McNISH SAYS THANK YOU
Ever gracious, Allan McNish has a simple message for the fans who recently voted him the American Le Mans Series' Driver of the Decade: Thank you.
"I'd like to thank everybody from the American Le Mans Series who voted for me as the Driver of the Decade," McNish says in a special audio message to fans. "I was very pleasantly surprised when I arrived into Laguna and was told that I had won the overall vote. To be voted No. 1 out of that group is quite a humbling experience. I certainly have enjoyed my time in the Series tremendously. It has been excellent fun, excellent racing, great fans, great circuits and a brilliant championship. I look forward to the next 10 years of the American Le Mans Series and seeing the championship grow even further again."
McNish and Audi won overall at Petit Le Mans and the 24 Hours of Le Mans this season. In his Series career, McNish has three LMP1 championships, 26 victories (18 overall), 36 podiums, 12 pole positions and 15 fastest race laps.
The Drivers of the Decade contest helped celebrate the American Le Mans Series' recently completed 10th season of world-class sports car racing.
