2008 1000 Km of Monza

The 2008 1000 km of Monza was the second round of the 2008 Le Mans Series season. It took place at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza, Italy, on 27 April 2008. This event was the last.

Monégasque driver Stéphane Ortelli was injured in an incident during the race in which his Oreca-Courage Le Mans prototype became airborne in the first chicane. The car flipped several times, and Ortelli suffered a broken ankle. Ortelli's car narrowly missed hitting the #1 Audi R10 driven by Allan McNish. McNish had to weave his way through the debris of the crash.[1]
