Classic & Sports Car – Porsche celebrated in Le Mans exhibition

Porsche’s proud Le Mans history is the subject of a brand-new, temporary exhibition at the circuit’s museum to coincide with the marque’s 70th anniversary.

‘Porsche at Le Mans’ is open until 13 January 2019 at the Circuit de la Sarthe’s 24 Hours of Le Mans Museum and thanks to support from the manufacturer boasts a wealth of four-wheeled stars commemorating its record-breaking 19 wins at the event.

That’s 36 winning drivers, in case you were wondering, while all 893 drivers who have lined up for Porsche at the 24 Hours are remembered in this showcase.
