Adventure rally to Le Mans

From Stuttgart to Le Mans. In two weeks. With vehicles worth a maximum of 1000 euros each. What an adventure!

It was the beginning of June. Twelve drivers, among them seven Porsche employees, and six cars were ready to start off. The mission: a rally to Le Mans. Why? To cheer Porsche on during the 24 Hours of Le Mans on 13/14 June. And because a rally like this can turn into a real adventure.

This is particularly so because of the conditions agreed. After all, the route does not go directly to the racetrack but takes in Barcelona, Gibraltar and Madrid. In total, this adds up to more than 5,000 kilometres. No easy task – in the case of these vehicles. None of them has cost more than 1000 euros. An additional 200 euros was all their owners were allowed to invest in making their vehicles fit for the rally.

At the end of June: Porsche won a double victory at Le Mans – and Rally 1000 competitors were there live. Meanwhile, they have all returned home.

This video shows you how the teams competed and what they experienced along the way:
