Daytona 24 Hours

Still Porsches, but the Jaguars looked good Speed, colour and variety are three descriptive words which immediately come to mind to describe the Daytona 24-Hour race, opening round of the American IMSA series run the first weekend in February. Seeing no end to the deadlock between FISA and IMSA, Porsche gave their new 962 model its debut on the famous tri-oval track, driven by Mario and Mike...

Luck, skill and compatibility

Interview Derek Bell MBE, the reigning World Sportscar Champion, won Le Mans 24-Hour race in June for the fifth time. This is an achievement exceeded by only one man (his former driving partner Jacky Ickx, who had six successes – three of them with Bell) and, at the age of 45, Bell is by far Britain's most successful sportscar driver. After the race, the Englishman talked to us about luck, skill...

The fab 4

By 1982 the Porsche 935 was at the end of its competitive life in Europe, but the Americans kept finding ways to make it ever faster. JLP-4 became its apotheosis Writer Mauro Borella When Porsche decided to stop production of the legendary 935 at the end of the 1970s, it was private teams who took on the job of racing and modifying them, or even building new ones. In later years, non-factory cars...

All for one

Renault had never looked like winning Le Mans — its motorsport programme was too fragmented. That all changed in 1977, but it took another year for this revolution to take effect. Paul Fearnley explains why Judging by how far the man holding the microphone-on-a-stick jumps back as the car fires up, our fervent hope that this Le Mans-winner's turbo V6 might not bust today's noise limit has just...

Porsche's hottest numbers

In 60 years the Stuttgart firm has produced some glorious cars. Picking the 10 best models would be tricky enough, but the 10 best individual chassis? Time to turn to a true Porsche expert… By Michael Cotton There was a time when I did not care for Porsches at all. There, heresy confessed! My school exercise books were covered in drawings of Ferrari and Maserati Grand Prix cars, beautiful front-...

Endurance Racing Review

Porsche won its sixth victory in the Le Mans 24 Hour endurance classic held on June 13th/14th, eclipsing the successes of Jaguar and Bentley and moving ever closer to Ferrari's record of nine. But behind that little bit of history came another, even more remarkable feat, for Belgium's Jacky Ickx wrote himself into the record books by taking his fifth victory at la Sarthe, placing himself on a...

LE MANS 24 HOURS

The Porsche factory was successful at Le Mans every year between 1981 and 1987, a run finally ended by Jaguar, and it has taken the Zuffenhausen company seven years to return to the ACO's podium. Porsche's 13th Le Mans victory was achieved on June 19 by Yannick Dalmas, Hurley Haywood and Mauro Baldi in a Dauer 962LM Porsche running in the Grand Touring category, and they were a single lap ahead...

Les Vingt-Quatre Heures Du Mans

Le Mans, June 11th/12th Dramatic endings are nothing new in motor racing, even if they are less frequently encountered in long, drawn out endurance races than in the more hectic excitement of Formula One and Formula Two events. But the finish to the 45th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans that took place on June 12th was exceptional by any standards, with the winning Porsche 936 suffering a...

Around the houses

– RM Auctions – In its August 13-15 Sports and Classics of Monterey sale, RM has two historic Miller race cars going under the hammer. The first, a 1931 Miller V16, is the only such racer ever built and was placed 27th in that year’s Indianapolis 500. It then ran as high as third in the ’32 race before an oil line broke. In 1933 an accident claimed the lives of both driver Lester Spangler and...
