LE MANS, France (June 15, 2003) - Eighteen hours into the race, the two Audi privateer teams of Team ADT Champion Racing and Audi Sport Japan Team Goh are still running strong. The Bentley cars continue to dominate first and second position while Team ADT Champion has maintained third and Audi Sport Japan Team Goh continues in fourth.

For Audi Sport UK, the race ended just before two hours of racing when Frank Biela wanted to enter the pitlane for his second regular pitstop but another competitor blocked his way. Biela, who had won Le Mans for three successive years, was able to avoid a collision but missed the pit entrance. Although Frank reduced his speed to conserve fuel, the Audi R8 retired about two miles before the pits near the Arnage curve.
