Nico Hulkenberg has won the Le Mans 24 Hours on his first attempt with Porsche, teaming up with Earl Bamber and Nick Tandy.
With just over an hour and a half remaining, Force India driver Hulkenberg took over the race-leading #19 919 Hybrid from Bamber.
Comfortably a lap ahead of the second Porsche, Hulkenberg had an easy stroll – after a long 24 hours – to the chequered flag.
The #19 beat a fellow Porsche entry driven by former F1 driver Mark Webber, Brendon Hartley and Timo Bernhard.
Webber and company had initially led the race but a one-minute time penalty due to a yellow infringement cost them dearly.
It also allowed the #19, who early in the race had lost ground during a safety car period, to take over in the eighth hour and from there they never looked back.
Porsche triumphed in the iconic event ahead of Audi, who had a troublesome morning that included several unscheduled pitstops.
"Thank you so much everybody, great effort over the last few months," Hulkenberg said upon the win.
