Porsche has achieved its 18th overall Le Mans victory at the 84th running of the famous 24-Hours of Le Mans. Drivers Romain Dumas (FR), Neel Jani (CH) and Marc Lieb (GER) brought home the innovative Porsche 919 Hybrid in first place. Their team mates Timo Bernhard (GER), Brendon Hartley (NZ) and Mark Webber (AUS) in the sister car finished 14th overall after a long stop for repairs in the night. No other brand has managed to win the world’s toughest endurance race so many times and is connected that closely to the myth of Le Mans.
