Porsche 917 – The autobiography of 917-023

917-023-coverIf there was one Porsche racing car that set the Stuttgart company on the road to motor sport stardom, then it must surely be the 1970 Le Mans winning Porsche 917. For many years it had been the sole aim of Porsche’s Director of Research & Development, Dr. Ferdinand Piëch, to win Le Mans, and one can easily chart the company’s route to the stop step of the podium right from the early 1960s. He achieved this goal in 1970 when Porsche 917-023, driven by Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood, crossed the line to take the chequered flag.

This magnificent book tells the story of that Porsche 917 which, in that now familiar red and white livery of the Porsche Salzburg team, is today perhaps better known than it was back in the day.
