This photo-set was going to come after that of the number 17 Porsche that finished ahead of these R18 E-trons at the 24hrs of Le Mans, but I just heard that one of these badboys will be at the Festival of Speed this coming weekend so it’s jumped the queue…..can’t wait to see it again, although I doubt it will be reaching the same speeds as it did 10 days ago!

Although it’s been toppled from the number one spot at the LM24, the Audi is arguably still the best looking and best sounding LMP1 car on the grid, it’s an absolute spaceship!

Back to Le Mans - and we have the number 17 car entered by Porsche, which completed their epic one-two finish in the 24h. This car probably had more of a buzz about it than any other, mainly thanks to the presence of ex-F1 and now full-time Porsche factory driver Mark Webber, who was joined by fellow antipodean Brendon Hartley and German Timo Bernhard.

Nico, Nick and Earl weren’t the only ones spraying Champagne last weekend, Corvette Racing were also tasting victory in the LM GTE Pro class. Englishman Oliver Gavin joined American team-mates Tommy Milner and Jordan Taylor in the ‘Vette, beating the 2nd place Ferrari F458 run by AF Corse.
