They eventually returned to Le Mans, saw their cars develop aerodynamic instabilities and flip off the track, and they retired the program again.
It boggles my mind that they finished the race after this. From the Wikipedia article, it seems like they didn’t even take a break after the accident, just kept going.
There’s some pretty morbid footage of this on YouTube where it slowed down you can see a large shard from a vehicle decapitating bystanders.
Edit: here it is. Viewer Discretion is Advised
Here is an animated short I found very well done from the perspective of the team and drivers.
