2015 Le Mans Gallery – Porsche takes historic 17th win with 1-2 finish

Ok, we’ll hold our hands up. We didn’t predict this in our Friday Photo Gallery. Nope, we overlooked the pace of the Porsches in qualifying and, instead, went for another Audi victory. We were wrong, even if we had predicted it a year ago. But congratulations to Porsche for surprising us with a rather impressive 1-2 win! In what…

Ask any bearded hipster and they’ll happily tell you that retro is obviously cool.

Friday Photo – Porsche 24 Hours of Le Mans Heritage

We’re just over a week away from 82nd 24 Hours of Le Mans, which will feature a three-way battle for the headline LMP1-H title between Porsche, Audi and Toyota. Porsche hasn’t competed in the top category for 16 years, so the pressure is on the new 919 Hybrid to see if it can live up to the…
