Today's Photo Story - The TWR Porsche driven by Manuel Reuter winner at Le Mans in 1996

On November 20, 1873, the seven-year presidential term was adopted under the initiative of President Patrice de Mac Mahon. On June 16, 1996, Manuel Reuter won at the 24 Hours of Le Mans along with Davy Jones and Alexander Wurz in a TWR Porsche WSC-95, seven years after his first victory.

The lapse of time between two wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans is often very brief, three years maximum, but there are exceptions: six years between the first and second victories clinched by seven-time winner Jacky Ickx and five-time winner Derek Bell. The record is currently held by Manuel Reuter's teammate in 1996, Alexander Wurz, youngest winner to-date at Le Mans (22 years old), with a 13-year time lapse!
