Go for it

Some things you won't know if you don't try them. Some things you'll never see if you don't look for them. And some moments you won't believe until you experience them.

So when you have a great idea, but you're not sure if it will work, go for it. When you want a change, but everyone else thinks you're crazy, go for it. When there's something on your mind that you've always wanted to do, go for it. And when you reach a moment that you never want to end, make it yours forever. Because sometimes all it takes is to aim as high as you can and go for it. We thank our teams for exceptional results in all classes and an overall 1‐2 finish at the FIA WEC 6h of Nürburgring 2017.

In the last race before the Le Mans 24-Hours, the Porsche 919 Hybrids finished third and fourth. At the six-hour race in Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium, both prototypes endured a troubled contest. Hartley had the consolation of setting the overall fastest race lap to underline the 919 Hybrid’s potential. But it was a pair of Toyotas that took the laurels.
