All good things must come to an end.
The Porsche 919 of Lotterer / Tandy / Jani races into the sunset one last time during the 6 Hours of Bahrain.
With only Toyota remaining as a manufacturer in the top flight of the WEC, it’s uncertain what the future of LMP1 is. Personally I don’t know how it will pan out, but I’m just grateful I’ve had the opportunity to photograph these amazing LMP1 machines for the last ten years. From the V12 shriek of the Lola Aston Martin (youtube it kids), to the Peugeot’s, Audi’s and the frankly stunning Toyota and Porsche we have witnessed this year. To study a modern LMP1 machine is to look at racing engineering perfection, with every contour and space trimmed for maximum performance.
Whatever comes next, this will surely go down as a golden age in sportscar racing.
