Porsche Wins Le Mans

 

Porsche has finally unseated rivals Audi, as they took the honours at the Le Mans 24 Hour race, which took place at Circuit de la Sarthe, France this past weekend.

Audi has dominated the race for years, winning 13 of the last 15 races, but Porsche managed to claim the checkered flag this time, securing their 17th win at Le Mans. Porsche dominated the race in the 1970s and 80s, but the last time Porsche won was in 1998.  


The number 19 Porsche 919 Hybrid crossed the finish line with German Formula One driver Nico Hulkenberg at the wheel, together with teammates Nicky Tandy from England and New Zealand’s Earl Bamber. Equally impressive was that the driver squad were almost entirely Le Mans rookies, with both Bamber and Hülkenberg having never driven the circuit before. The number 17 Porsche and number 7 Audi R18 e-tron Quattro came in second and third respectively.


Competition was stiff between Porsche and Audi throughout the course of the race, with all three Porsches starting up front, followed by the Audis. With the lead switching back and forth between the two, it was ultimately Porsche that took the Le Mans glory.
