PORSCHE WINS LE MANS

Today, Porsche claimed its 17th overall Le Mans victory. The team’s 919 Hybrid #19 won the world’s greatest endurance race with Nico Hulkenberg, Nick Tandy, and Earl Bamber driving.

Porsche Team’s 919 #17, which was on pole with Mark Weber, finished second. Audi had to settle for 3rd after dominating this French event for years.

Patrick Dempsey’s Proton 911 RSR #77 finished 2nd on the LM GTE Am class podium with Marco Seefried and my buddy Patrick Long sharing driving duties. Congrats to all!
