For 82 years, The 24 Hours of Le Mans has tested the endurance, strength and speed of both man and machine. The biggest story behind this year’s running of Le Mans was no doubt the return of Porsche, who have been absent from the race’s top class for 16 years. The storied automaker teamed up with Michelin to create “We Are Racers”, a series of short films documenting the company’s 2014 journey to Le Mans. The final film in the series takes an inside look at Porsche’s running of the 24 hour race, shining light on not only the drivers, but the engineers and advisors who put a massive amount of blood, sweat and tears into the race. Only one of Porsche’s 919 Hybrids finished, placing eleventh overall, but finishing the race is an impressive feat in and of itself.
