Michelin and Porsche Documentary Captures the Essence of Le Mans

This year's Le Mans 24 Hours Race is less than one week away and since every competitor has introduced its LMP1 prototype that will be running for glory, it's high time we took an educational approach of the event.

By educational we mean a documentary, but motorsport addicts will call this food for the soul. Also, if you think we're exaggerating here, just take your time to watch the 25-minute video after we're done telling a thing or two about the clip.

The name chosen by Michelin and Porsche for it is 'We Are Racers' and that says almost everything about it. However, the perspective is switched, as the tremendous competition is now seen through the eyes of those involved in it from drivers to mechanics, instead of spectators.

Of course, the focus is placed on Porsche's journey through the 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship, along with a series of flashbacks from last year's Le Mans 24 Hours Race.

Although it is challenging to describe in words what such an event generates in terms of emotions and thrills, those behind the video came up with an inspiring quote. So, if this doesn't make you want to savour every frame of the video above, we don't know what will:

"Le Mans is a race against time, the elements, the traffic. It's about fighting against many enemies on the track. For us, winning is not only coming first, it’s getting out of the track knowing you couldn’t have done better. It’s not only about miles, about speed, about a second. It’s all about a state of mind. Because we are racers."
