At the 85th running of the 24-hour race drivers Earl Bamber, Timo Bernhard and Brendon Hartley have brought home the Porsche 919 Hybrid in first place after a race full of drama. At 18:30 on Saturday evening, it looked like the Le Mans 24-Hours was over for the Porsche 919 Hybrid, piloted by Earl Bamber (NZ), Timo Bernhard (DE) and Brendon Hartley (NZ). Their car had no front axle drive, spent over an hour being repaired and rejoined the race 18 laps behind. But as every Le Mans fan knows, anything can happen in this race. And, the 85th instance of the endurance classic was no different - as a dramatic sequence of events allowed the impossible to be realised: After an enormous effort, the trio sliced through the field from 56th position to overall victory. For Le Mans record holder Porsche, it is the 19th overall win in the world’s toughest race and the third in a row meaning Porsche retains the famous trophy.
