Video: We Are Racers - Episode 2
It’s been 16 years since Porsche last competed at Le Mans, exiting the race in 1998 after winning it with a 911 GT1-98. This year, the German automaker makes its long-awaited return to the site of some of its greatest racing moments.
Porsche’s return to Le Mans is a pretty big deal, so it’s only fitting that the company has commemorated the occasion by producing a new web documentary called "We are Racers." The web series chronicles all of Porsche’s activities leading up to the 24 Hours of Le Mans this weekend.
We especially liked the short segment dedicated to Mark Webber, the former Formula One driver who is set to compete at Le Mans for the first time since his spectacular practice crash at the 1999 installment of the endurance race.
It’s only appropriate that Webber’s return to Le Mans coincides with Porsche’s own comeback. Both the team and its marque driver haven’t competed in the race since the turn of the millennium. It’ll be interesting to see how they fare when the race kicks off this weekend.
In the meantime, do check out the "We are Racers" web series. One thing we can tell you about the documentary. After watching it, you’re going to be itching to get your Le Mans fix for the next few days.
For those of you who missed it, you can see Episode 1 after the jump.
