Video: Porsche gears up for 2015 season with the help of some past racing heroes

At the end of last week, Porsche Motorsport kicked off its 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship campaign at the official ‘Prologue’ test. On the eve of the test, it revealed the three liveries its trio of Porsche 919 Hybrid LMP1 racers would run in at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The triumvirate of designs, while retaining the ‘Porsche Intelligent Performance’ style debuted last year, are clearly influenced by the famous racing liveries of old, especially the red design which is especially reminiscent of the Porsche Salzburg 917K of Richard Attwood and Hans Hermann, winner at Le Mans in 1970.

As Porsche guns for its 17th overall victory at Le Sarthe this year, the heritage of its motorsport department obviously is not forgotten, as it has released this video featuring a number of iconic racers from its storied history. How many can you spot?
