I have just been reading -Porsche 917 -The undercover story by Gordon Wingrove . It is a great insight into this extraordinary racing car.I bought the book some time ago but have only just got around to reading it.
I also own Porsche 917x17 -a photo book by Jeff Zwart which records details of all the remaining 17(of 25) 917s.It is a superb piece of work- a trifecta for me-a superb photography book about Porsche and the greatest Porsche of them all the 917.
Yes, I am a very committed 917 fanboy.
Some of my 917 photos from the 2008,2010 and 2012 Le Mans Classics and the Porsche Museum.Leica X1 and Canon G9 photos.
And I am told that the Porsche Museum is sending some cars out to the Australian Phillip Island Historics in February next year.Here's hoping that there is a 917 amongst them .I'll be there...There will never be another racing car like the 917 so see one if you can.
