The 24 minutes of Le Mans.

Porsche The 24 minutes of Le Mans.

What do you actually do with old car tyres? Throw them out? Give them away? Make a Christmas wreath? We made records out of them and auctioned them off, raising over 120,000 euros for a children’s home in Le Mans.

But let’s start at the beginning. Porsche and Le Mans is a uniquely fascinating story that spans many decades. When Porsche decided to leave the LMP1 class of the Le Mans 24 Hours, we naturally needed a worthy farewell. And that’s exactly what we made sure to do. We pressed vinyl records from the original tyres of the winning 919 Hybrid car, on which the 24 greatest stories of Porsche in the Le Mans 24 Hours were immortalised. Twenty four of the records were then auctioned online for a children’s home in Le Mans. And there was so much money from this that two of the records were able to place themselves in the top ten of the ‘most expensive records of all time’. And guess what? Right now, you are thinking about your old summer tyres lying around in your garage.
