Porsche breaks through and wins at Interlagos
By:

It was a bitter sweet end to the 2014 season for Porsche.

#8 Toyota Racing Toyota TS040-Hybrid: Anthony Davidson, Sebastien Buemi
#13 Rebellion Racing Rebellion R-One - Toyota: Dominik Kraihamer, Andrea Belicchi, Fabio Leimer
#1 Audi Sport Team Joest Audi R18 e-tron quattro: Lucas di Grassi, Loic Duval, Tom Kristensen
#95 AMR Aston Martin Vantage: Kristian Poulsen, David Heinemeier-Hansson, Nicki Thiim

It took them an entire season, but Porsche are victors once more. The No. 14, piloted by Neel Jani, Romain Dumas, and Marc Lieb held off a charge from the No. 8 Toyota and had further assistance from a 25 minute safety car that ended the race under yellow flag conditions.

The No. 1 Audi filled out the podium, highlihted by Tom Kristensen, who has run his final race. The third and final safety car period was brought out by the other Porsche in a violent accident involving Mark Webber and AF Corse Ferrari's Matteo Cressoni. Both are awake and alert, but Mark was taken away by stretcher as a precaution.

KCMG easily took the LMP2 race win, 18 laps ahead of their closest pursuer. The No. 27 SMP Racing team did indeed snatch the championship honors from G-Drive, which suffered a race-ending accident while leading class, just one hour into the event.

AMR swept the GTE classes with the No. 97 Aston and the No. 98 Aston taking the victories.
