On June 14th 2015 - one year ago today - Porsche returned to the winners' circle at the Le Mans 24 Hours with a spectacular 1-2 result headlined by an extraordinary performance from 'guest' drivers Nico Hulkenberg, Nick Tandy and Earl Bamber.

Driving a 'wildcard' Porsche 919 Hybrid, the trio - consisting of two Le Mans rookies and an LMP1 debutant - swept all before it with an extraordinary driving performance against more experienced and better-fancied rivals, not least from within its own Porsche camp.
