The psychedelic (Hippy) Porsche 917K chassis number 917-021 raced in more than one colour scheme during 1970. The two cars paired here are actually both 917-021.
The Martini Racing Team had 021 painted in the psychedelic mauve and green livery seen on the long-tail 917 (chassis 043) that came second at Le Mans 24 Hours. It was entered for van Lennep and Larrousse in the Watkins Glen 6 Hours race. 917-021’s last race for the Martini Racing Team was the Kyalami 9 Hours with Siffert and Ahrens at the wheel. For tbis race it was painted in the yellow and red psychedelic livery for sponsors Shell Oil.
