We already know Porsche's 919 Hybrid prototype racecar is a science project. Now we know it's fast. In fact, one of them was fastest at the World Endurance Championship test at Paul Ricard circuit in France late last month. Watch it do that now.

On this /TRACKSIDE video, we get to watch from, you know, trackside, as the #20 Porsche of Brendon Hartley, Timo Bernhard and Mark Webber and the #14 car of Romain Dumas Neel Jani and Marc Lieb lap Ricard on a late shakedown leading up to the WEC season, which includes The 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The #20 car set the fastest lap of the test, at 1m41.289s, while the #14 car was third at 1m42.126s, edged out by the #2 Audi R18 e-tron quattro (1m42.073s). The #7 Toyota TS040 HYBRID was fourth (1m42.356s).
