Anthony Davidson provided the biggest surprise in qualifying for the Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race after an impressive lap put his Toyota in third place on the grid.
Davidson, who is driving alongside Stephane Sarrazin and Sebastien Buemi in his TS030, finished behind the much-fancied Audi e-tron Quattro and one of the Audi Ultra entries - and the 33-year-old was happy with the team's efforts.
"After this qualifying session, I feel that we almost got everything possible from the car," he said.
"I did a good lap and I think we can be happy with what we achieved. I am still very new at the wheel of the TS030 HYBRID and I am going faster and faster; the car is nicely balanced and I feel comfortable with it."
Ex-Super Aguri Formula One driver Davidson was part of the Peugeot team last year that finished fourth in the iconic race and he is excited ahead of tomorrow's race and is also hoping to be even more impressive.
He said: "I am really looking forward to the race, to see what we can do; I hope we will have a reliable car.
"I think we surprised some people as we are so close to pole position and I actually still think that we have a stronger race car than a qualifying car.
"Le Mans is very a tough race but if we have no problems, if all is going well, we can be on the podium."
Martin Brundle, another former Formula One driver, is taking part in the race for the first time since 2001 as he races alongside his son Alex in the independent Greaves Motorsport outfit in the LMP2 class - a step down from the main LMP1 racers.
The 53-year-old, who is now a seasoned F1 commentator, is looking forward to sharing an "amazing" experience with his son.
He said: "I suspect it's completely different for the pair of us but for me it will be 'that's my boy' and helping strap him in the car and sending him off down into the night will be something quite amazing.
"But first and foremost we are there to win the class, we are there with our racing heads on.
"The misty-eyed father and son bit is the old guilt-trip of you've been away all year, when they were growing up you missed the birthday parties - I think I've done 420 grands prix now but sharing this experience will be quite exceptional."
