Porsche’s 19th victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans will be marked with exemplary work in the pits by the mechanics, more than an hour in the garage that put the team in the last place and a historical recovery along the race, an hour of the end of the 24 Hours the Porsche # 2 was in first. Without a doubt the best example of how important an entire team’s work is to win an extremely hard race.
The idea of doing this book was born several years ago, showing the work of the mechanics and engineers, the dedication to win and most of the time just to finish the race.This was a year in which Toyota again failed to win the race, an objective that has persisted for more than 20 years, in the end the disappointment was evident in the face of all team members, but we have to feel respect and admiration for this team that never gives up fighting.
In the LMP2 category the Chinese team Jackie Chan DC Racing won and was very close to winning the overall classification, this year also marked the return of the name Vaillante to Le Mans, for me I grew up to read the stories of Jean Graton of the adventures of Michel Vaillant it had a special meaning to be in the pit lane to photograph the team.
Portugal was once again present in the teams with Algarve Pro Racing, it is always good to hear Portuguese in the pit lane, not only do we have good drivers but also good mechanics and engineers, in this and even other teams.
Regarding drivers Portugal was once again well represented, Filipe Albuquerque for United Autosports finished fifth in the LMP2 category. In LMGTE Am Pedro Lamy with the Aston Martin Vantage in his 18th participation in Le Mans, and Álvaro Parente with the Ferrari 488 GTE of Clearwater Racing.
In the category LMGTE Am the victory went to the Ferrari 488 GTE of JMW Motorsport, the Larbre Competition was present with the Chevrolet Corvette C7.R with a very original decoration by Ramzi Adek.
In the LMGTE Pro category, Aston Martin takes home the victory in a year that was expected to be a fight between Ford and Ferrari, the Ford GT #67 finished second with Corvette Racing finishing in third place.
