This partnership helped catapult the iconic Porsche 956 to a 1-2-3 finish in the 1982 24 Hours of Le Mans. They would go on to win the series three additional times throughout the 80s. Rothmans-Porsche also won the 1985 World Sportscar Championship before the team officially pulled out of the series in 1987.
