It is 16 years since Porsche last won the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Now the sports car maker is staging a comeback: the Stuttgart company is entering its newly developed racing car, the 919 Hybrid, in the LMP1 class at the WEC (World Endurance Championship). The expectations towards the car, the team and the drivers are high, not least because one of those hired is an international superstar: former F1 driver Mark Webber.

The first part of the 3-part documentary describes Porsche’s racing history, the intense preparations over the past 12 months, test runs, preparations behind the scenes, and the intensity with which Porsche is pursuing its return to motor racing.

On Sunday, 20 April 2014, the FIA World Endurance Tour will launch its 2014 season at Silverstone. Further riveting information is available at: http://www.fiawec.com
