"All Andretti Team" Place 6th At Le Mans - June 12, 1988

June 12, 1988 
The all Andretti team of Mario, Michael, and John Andretti drove a Porsche 962C to a 6th place finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The race was won by the Jaguar XJR-9 LM of Jan Lammers, Johnny Dumfries, and Andy Wallace.

Mario competed at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in four decades. In 1966 he shared a Holman Moody Ford MKII with Lucien Bianchi. They retired after their car dropped a valve at 10:30 pm. Andretti's final appearance at Le Mans was at the 2000 race, six years after his retirement from full-time racing, when he drove the Panoz LMP-1 Roadster-S at the age of 60, finishing 16th.
