“We race because it’s our tradition”

Porsche 917

Porsche has won Le Mans a record 16 times. It’s return to the LMP1 category in 2014 brought with it a wave of nostalgia. Xcar ran with that and made this 25 minute video which they have declared is “the definitive history” of Porsche at Le Mans.

Red Bull takes the high road

RBR at Khardun-La Pass, India

Proving Red Bull’s pockets and crazy ideas know no bounds their F1 showcar team has scaled new heights by driving the world’s highest road. The Khardung La is in India and is 5359m above sea level. To give this some perspective, Australia’s highest mountain, Mt Kosciuszko, has an elevation of just 2,228m.

Former A1 champion and F1 test driver Neel Jani, a Swiss with Indian heritage, was the man at the wheel and is chuffed that he can lay claim to being the first to drive an F1 car at the highest altitude possible.

After the break there’s a couple of videos and more pics of what is a pretty impressive effort from Red Bull.
