MERCEDES-BENZ CLR n.5
The Mercedes-Benz CLR is a prototype designed by Mercedes-Benz to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1999. After winning the 1998 Grand Touring World Championship with the CLK-LM progenitor, Mercedes realizes the car for the LM GTP class, a new class created by the ACO specifically for Le Mans, which also includes the Toyota GT-One. Nick Heidfeld, Peter Dumbreck and Cristophe Bouchut at the wheel of the Mercedes-Benz CLR n.5 did not finish the 24 Hours of Le Mans 1999
Mercedes worried by these episodes, decided to start the same but with changes to prevent the recurrence of incidents occurred. During the race, just before night, the Mercedes-Benz CLR driven by Peter Dumbreck while chasing a Toyota GT-One on the back before the Indianapolis curve takes off like an airplane, rotates in the air and then landed in the woods 30 meters from the track; the pilot is unharmed, while the car is destroyed. The Stuttgart manufacturer stops immediately even the last CLR in the race and the Mercedes team withdraws from the race.
