Allan McNish: Le Mans champion retires from racing

Britain's three-time Le Mans 24-hour race winner Allan McNish has retired from sports-prototype racing.

The 43-year-old won Le Mans in 1998, 2008 and 2013, and also this year's World Endurance Drivers' Championship.

That gave the Scot the first world title of his 25-year career.

"I've had a fantastically successful time with Audi and feel it's the right time to step back from Le Mans sports-prototype racing and to look at other opportunities," he said.

McNish started his career in karting, winning three British titles and finishing third in the 1985 World Championship, and spent a season in Formula 1 with Toyota in 2002.
