Porsche is celebrating their 2014 Le Mans comeback with video  look back at the cars and drivers who made history at the Circuit de la Sarthe.

The German marque dominated the 24 hour race during the 1980s with the legendary 956 and 962s, taking seven overall victories. More recently however it been Audi that has owned the French classic, claiming a Porsche beating eight overall victories from 2000 – 2009 and kicking off  a new decade in style by taking the 2010 and 2011 races.

So Porsche has a point to prove. And when your official video includes Derek Bell talking about the iconic Porsche 956 and saying “This car set the bar for Porsche forever”, then you know its game on.
