This year, thanks to our friends at Michelin, we will be attending the 82nd running of the French classic twice-round-the-clock race, the world-renowned 24 hours of Le Mans. We’re going, but you’ll get to reap the benefits of our increased media coverage. This is the single most important race on Porsche’s schedule this year, and it should be on yours as well. Porsche’s 919 Hybrid will be attacking La Sarthe circuit, zooming down to Mulsanne, flying through Indianapolis, Arnage, into the namesake Porsche curves, past Maison Blanche, the Ford Chicane, Tertre Rouge, and we’ll be following them every step of the way.
This will be the 919’s Le Mans debut, it will be a return of the 2013 champion LM GTE Pro class 991 RSRs, it will be Porsche’s first factory-effort with a legitimate shot at the overall victory since 1998 when they last won. For those reasons and more, we are excited to be able to bring you social media coverage of the event as it unfolds around us.
