Porsche has claimed overall victory at Le Mans 2015, Porsche Drivers Earl Bamber for New Zealand, Nico Hulkenberg from Germany and Nick Tandy from Great Britain won the 24 hour Le Mans 2015 race in a Porsche 918 Hybrid.
As well as coming first, Porsche almost managed to take second place with drivers Timo Bernhard from Germany, Brendon Hartley from New Zealand and Mark Webber from Australia.
The winning number 19 prototype had started third on the grid, and for a short time at the beginning even dropped down the order to eighth before settling in sixth for a longer period. Of all things, it is the rookie crew that won the monstrous classic. Neither Formula One driver Nico Hülkenberg, who had the joy of being in the car at the most emotional moments of the race, being the start and the finish driver, nor Earl Bamber brought Le Mans experience with them. Nick Tandy, the third driver of the winning trio, had at least done two Le Mans 24-Hours for Porsche in the GT class. By doing super fast laps, staying calm but highly focused, the three of them drove a race with no errors and won it by their own merits.
