The successful duo from Denmark and France, who shared driving duties in the No. 92 #Porsche 911 RSR with Belgian Laurens Vanthoor, scored enough points at the 24-hour race in France to clinch the title.

#Porsche had already claimed the manufacturers’ title prior to the #endurance classic.

At the 87th edition of the 24 Hours of #LeMans, all four #Porsche 911 RSR maintained an impressive pace in front of 252,500 spectators. The best result was achieved by Gianmaria Bruni (Italy), Richard Lietz (Austria) and Frédéric Makowiecki in the No. 91 nine-eleven with second place. Earl Bamber (New Zealand), Patrick Pilet (France) and Nick Tandy from Great Britain yielded a double podium result for the #Porsche GT Team, clinching third in the number 93 car. Both #Porsche 911 RSR vehicles crossed the finish line less than 70 seconds behind the class winner. This margin resulted from being hampered by bad luck in the safety car phases.

Last year’s winners in the lead until the early morning
Over long stretches of the race, the vehicle of the new world champions, Christensen and Estre as well as Vanthoor, was on course to repeat last year’s victory. After five hours, the No. 92 car had swept into the lead of the GTE-Pro class to hold a convincing lead during the night. The decisive setback struck in the early hours of the morning at 3.47am. Repairs to a defect exhaust system threw the winning #LeMans trio of 2018 back six laps. In the end, the car crossed the finish line in tenth place – enough to win the drivers’ title in the FIA #WEC.
