Family Ties

Porsche and Audi begin their brutal 24-hour dogfight for the lead while Jann Mardenborough's Nissan #23 crew desperately try to get his car out of the garage. After a second place finish two years prior, Toyota's Sébastien Buemi is after a win to make his grandfather proud. His grandfather, who competed at Le Mans decades prior, watches anxiously from the stands, worried about the unbridled power of LMP1 cars today and their ability to launch off the track with his grandson inside. Privateers Rebellion amazingly keep up with frontrunners Audi and Porsche – but when a flaming GT car slams it into the barrier just an hour into the race – it looks like Rebellion's Le Mans could be over almost before it's begun.
