Not only is Porsche's involvement in racing extensive, but it's also one of the only automakers that offers a direct and clear—if incredibly difficult and unlikely—path from mere track days to a chance at a factory seat, with opportunities for glory and victory at every level in between.

Just think of that for a second, without these rivalry's we wouldn't of had these remarkable living icons and the stories which go with them.
