The 1977 Le Mans race is definitely one of the most legendary and exciting races in Porsche motorsport history. After a breath-taking comeback, Jacky Ickx has technical problems just before the end of the race and has to make a pit stop. But in order to win, he has to complete the race and drive to the finish line. Cruising is not possible. According to regulations, Ickx is not allowed to fall below the minimum lap time, nor can he cross the finish line too soon - because every lap that has been started, must be finished. What can he do? He comes up with an extraordinary way to achieve perfect timing. He puts a stopwatch on the steering wheel.
