Porsche claimed its 19th overall victory in the 2017 Le Mans 24 Hours, coming out on top in a race of attrition for the LMP1 cars.
The #2 919 Hybrid of Brendon Hartley, Timo Bernhard and Earl Bamber overhauled the surprise LMP2 overall leader, the #38 Jackie Chan DC Racing ORECA, in the 23rd hour, recovering from a lengthy stay in the garage early in the race that initially left it 18 laps down.
The race was once again a story of heartbreak for Toyota with all three of its cars, while in the GTE Pro manufacturer battle, Aston Martin and Corvette fought until the final lap for class honours.
