PORS­CHE HAS ON­CE AGAIN CON­QUE­RED THE CROWN OF LE MANS 24 HOURS. THIS WAS AN EPIC WIN, THE NINETEENTH OF ITS HIS­TORY, IN ONE OF THE MOST COM­PLEX AND HARDEST EDI­TIONS OF THE EVENT. PORS­CHE DEVELOPED A SPECTACULAR

AND SUCCESSFUL RECOVERY RIGHT AN HOUR BEFORE THE END, IN A FIGHT

WITH A LMP2. Ap­plau­ses, tears and sur­pri­ses at French La Sart­he

cir­cuit. Fa­vo­ri­te Toyota, which set a re­cord in the cir­cuit and star­ted in pole po­si­tion, didn’t win. And Pors­che had ta­ken the lead with team num­ber , but it did not win eit­her. Pors­che did cross the fi­nish li­ne in the first po­si­tion, but it did it with the car that had lost an hour and no­body was coun­ting on it. The le­vel was high in the GTE Pro ca­te­gory. As­ton Mar­tin pla­yed the lea­ding ro­le du­ring the ra­ce, alt­hough Cor­vet­te, Ford and Fe­rra­ri we­re al­ways ready to ta­ke the lead. As­ton Mar­tin-To­tal was

vic­to­rious in the last lap.
