January 2015 - 20 years after its legendary entry to the "24 Hours of Le Mans", flying the flag for the Kremer Porsche factory team, the Kremer Porsche K8 Spyder sports again the red colours of its historic main sponsor, MOTUL.

Impressed by Kremer's victory at the "24 Hours of Daytona" in January 1995, the Porsche AG decided right away, the K8 and the Cologne Kremer team should represent the factory's interests at the most important endurance race, the "24 Hours of Le Mans" at La Sarthe Circuit.

The newly built car, a carbon fibre tub, bearing the chassis number 02 and the race number 4, was designed to spearhead the effort. Ex-Fomula 1 driver Hans Joachim Stuck, joined by Thierry Boutsen and by the sports car expert Christophe Bouchut took up the challenge.

After a high speed race, struck by heavy rain and quite some unexpected incidences, the Kremer Porsche K8 went to the chequered flag, finishing 2nd in class and 6th overall.

From 1996 to 1998, three more quite successful entries to the "24 Hours of Le Mans" followed.
