Product Description

One year on from Porsche’s return to top level sports car racing, and in front of more than 200,000 spectators, the brand celebrated its 17th overall win at the Le Mans 24 hours. The close-knit team celebrated as one as the Porsche 919 Hybrid, driven by Nico Hülkenberg, Earl Bamber and Nick Tandy crossed the finish line. Months of preparation led to this extraordinary result, after 24 hours of hard racing. The tension during the final lap was palpable, and the tears of joy as the chequered flag waved could hardly be contained. Mark Webber, Brendon Hartley and Timo Bernhard completed the 1-2 for Porsche by finishing second overall. In the GT-Pro class, one of the two works-entered 911s secured fifth place while in the GT-Am category, Hollywood star Patrick Dempsey finished second in class after a performance worthy of a film script. In words and images, this book documents the entire story of the Porsche teams during the 83rd running of the Le Mans 24 Hours, from the presentation of the cars to the final result, via the test day, scrutineering, the practice sessions and the drivers’ parade and also, of course, all the action from the great race.
