NO SCRATCH, NO RACE: Audi's 2013 Le Mans winner Loic Duval won't be racing in the 2014 24 Hours sports car race after doctor's orders following a severe crash during practice on June 11. Image: Facebook


LE MANS, France - Audi's Le Mans winner Loic Duval has been ruled out of the 24 Hours sports car race on doctors' orders after a severe crash during practice on Wednesday (June 11 2014).

The 32-year-old Frenchman sustained only scratches during the high-speed impact that demolished his car but Audi announced later that Spanish reserve Marc Gene would replace him in the rebuilt No.1 car.

Organisers said doctors had submitted a report to the marshals "disallowing him from racing".


Duval won the 2013 race as well, as the world Endurance championship, in a car he shared with Denmark's nine-times winner Tom Kristensen and now-retired Scot Allan McNish.

Kristensen is seeking a record-extending 10th win from the 2014 race with Lucas di Grassi replacing McNish and hoping to become Brazil's first winner.

The race at the Sarthe circuit in western France will start on Saturday.
