Earlier today Porsche posted a new video featuring the career of Derek Bell and his relationship with Porsche. While we really enjoyed the video, and posted it for you below, we found a bit of an “easter egg” in Porche’s description of the video on YouTube; a new micro-site featuring Porsche’s return to Le Mans.

Not to be confused with the Le Mans 24h at the limit microsite. This new site revisits Porsche’s 16 overall victories at this most famous of long distance races. Each week, new images, videos and factoids, will be posted as Porsche prepared for their return to Le Mans in 2014. Much of what will be posted on the microsite isn’t available elsewhere so you might want to bookmark it and return often. I know I will!

He talks about the path back to Le Mans and the return of the 936 to the track for the first time since 1981 and the future of Porsche at Le Mans with real passion.
