Video: Le Mans 1970 meets 2014

Submitted by on April 7, 2014

1970PorscheLeMansBrilliant in-house production by Porsche brings 1970 Le Mans winner Richard Attwood together with 2014 Porsche factory driver Mark Webber.

Shot at the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone, this video uses a crisp production of Porsche’s 2014 919 LMP1 machine in action alongside archive footage of Richard Attwood’s 1970 Le Mans winning effort whilst driving the timeless 917. Attwood talks of Le Mans in his day compared to today whilst sitting with Mark Webber, Porsche factory driver for 2014. The most interesting part (aside from the killer footage of both cars), is hearing the pair talk of the fears they would have should they be asked to drive each others cars. A great little video by Porsche, well worth watching.
