1969 Gulf Racing Porsche 917 Le Mans Wor

porsche 917 at the rennsport collective

Quite possibly the star of the show at 2019's inaugural Rennsport Collective event at Donington Hall was this iconic Porsche 917 K. Finished in the instantly recognisable Gulf Racing livery, this is the 1969 Porsche Le Mans Works Car, chassis number 008. Parked directly outside the hall's entrance, this stunning sportscar made a clear statement of intent for the calibre of cars on show at the event. This car was entered into the 1969 Le Mans 24 hour race with the driver pairing of Vic Elford & Richard Attwood. It led the first 18 hours of the race by a full six laps and was the lone surviving 917, before clutch issues took their toll...
