2017 24 Hours of Le Mans


From: FIA World Endurance Championship

It was always going to be unpredictable, but few could have anticipated a race with so many twists and turns…all the way to the chequered flag. The 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans – third round of the FIA World Endurance Championship – was full of emotion, joy and disappointment, heat and drama, and it was Porsche LMP Team’s No.2 919 Hybrid which finally conquered all those sensations to take its 19th win at the world’s greatest endurance race.

The race was held in intense heat and was pronounced “tough” by drivers up and down the field.  Aston Martin Racing’s Jonny Adam, Darren Turner and Daniel Serra took a dramatic LMGTE Pro class victory, in a repeat of the classic battles for GT1 honors with Corvette Racing from 10 years ago, claiming maximum WEC points and moving the trio into second place in the GT FIA World Endurance Drivers’ Championship.

In this edited clip, there is no narration of the progress (sweet!) of the race, just you and the machine down on the track, nothing but sight and sound as the teams chase down the clock!
