Clash Of The Titans

Release the Kraken! Porsche 911 GT1 driver Yannick Dalmas and McLaren's Steve Soper each put on their 600-hp boxing gloves and brawl it out during the 1996 24 Hours of Le Mans. Although the clip isn't very long, you can already identify some characteristics between the cars and its drivers. The Porsche GT1 has the confidence to brake later and dive into corners before the McLaren. However, the McLaren has the composure to exit the corners carrying more grip and speed. It's rare to capture this sort of dynamism between two evenly matched cars with vastly different driving manners. This definitely falls into the "good old days" of auto racing.

Porsche eventually won the GT1 title for the 1996 Le Mans 24.

Have a great weekend, everybody!
