Three time Le Mans winner ends 33-year racing career.
On the heels of an FIA World Endurance Championship title, Allan McNish has decided to hang up his helmet.
The 43-year-old Scottish driver who has had so much success at Le Mans and endurance racing driving for Audi Sport decided it was time to retire from racing while one top of his game.
I've always said that I wanted to stop at the right time.
"We appreciate and respect Allan's decision to retire at the pinnacle of his career," said Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich, Audi Motorsport. "At the same time, this is a parting that is particularly difficult for us. All of us are well aware of Allan's racing successes."
McNish said he can never say never about a return to racing for a few races, but he has definitely decided against anything full-time.
"There are other opportunities that have come up," he told Autosport. I definitely want to do some other things in life, like management and TV stuff, and there are other little personal reasons as well."
