Porsche has achieved its 19th overall Le Mans victory at the 85th running of the 24-hour race.
Drivers Earl Bamber (NZ), Timo Bernhard (DE) and Brendon Hartley (NZ) brought home the Porsche 919 Hybrid in first place after a race full of drama.
It is the second time two Kiwis have piloted a Le Mans winning car with Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon the first duo in 1966 driving a Ford GT 40.
It is Brendon Hartley’s first win but Earl Bamber’s second Le Man victory, having won in 2015, again with Porsche.
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 as Porsche.
