Congratulations, number 17, you finally got your win at today’s 6 Hours of Nürburgring. Porsche’s number 18 LMP1 car had a technical oops earlier in the race, ceding the lead to the number 17 car. Number 17 then put a lap on its sister car, sealing the deal.

Mark Webber was sore, but awake enough to release a statement following yesterday's horrific Porsche 919 crash. Webber is sore and recovering fine, although he has no recollection of the accident. Doctors say that the impact gave him a concussion.
A massive crash took Mark Webber in the number 20 Porsche out of the race in the last hour of the World Endurance Championship's 6 Hours of São Paulo. The Porsche 919 collided with Matteo Cressoni in the number 90 Ferrari 458 of 8 Star Motorsports, then hit the wall.

Okay, so maybe this isn't actually a video of how quickly Mark feels the need to live every second of his life, including the bathroom breaks. But feel free to use this GIF for all sorts of fun purposes.
Circuit de la Sarthe, also known as Circuit de 24 Very Long Hours is 8.47 miles long, so Porsche's Mark Webber has to do a lot of pedaling before memorizing it all.
The Porsche 919 wasn't around at VW's private party, but Dempsey won the celebrity fancy suit showdown with ease. Meanwhile, I had a Carlsberg for dinner.
Porsche officially unveiled the 919 Hybrid, their Le Mans Prototype for 2014. Unlike Audi, they haven't figured out their livery yet, so the drivers were announced alongside the still camouflaged car.

A freshly released scene from DOTZ's Kings of Sideways video shows Sébastian Loeb, Mark Webber, David Coulthard and Carlos Sainz having plenty of fun with the E92 DD1, a supercharged BMW M3.
This CCTV footage shows how close Webber got to being hit by Lewis Hamilton when Fernando Alonso stopped on track to give him a lift at the Singapore Grand Prix. Was Alonso being careless or is Hamilton/the FIA overreacting to a non-story?
