When Nick Tandy joined the Porsche factory roster back in 2013, he had a dream - to claim a win in one of the big enduros for his new employer. After eight seasons with the German manufacturer, and as he sets out on a new chapter of his career with Corvette Racing, he now has a complete set with his triumph in the Spa 24 Hours last October.
That win gave him a full house of victories - overall or class - in the four 24-hour sportscar classics at Le Mans, Daytona, the Nurburgring and Spa. But Tandy has also completed the unofficial triple crown of endurance at Le Mans, Daytona and Sebring, and the quadruple crown if you add the Petit Le Mans enduro at Road Atlanta to that list. That surely makes him a holder of the sextuple crown.
He's not the first person to achieve any of those feats, but he is the first Brit to notch up victories in the four twice-around-the-clock enduros and across all six of the classics of his racing world. The achievement is not lost on him. In fact, he actively chased it over the course of his time with Porsche.
