Video: The race of records – Porsche at Le Mans 1971
1971 was a big year for the Le Mans 24 hour, with safety concerns seeing the traditional start being ditched in favor of a rolling Indianapolis Start. It was huge year for Porsche too, who finished the event with 917s in both first and second position. Furthermore, cutting-edge lightweight design saw numerous records tumble, such as the highest ever average speed at 222km/h.
Porsche are celebrating their memory of this historic event with this video honoring their achievements. Enjoy!
