Happy birthday to Le Mans winner Jürgen Barth, 72 years young today. Barth was part of the legendary 1977-winning team, where he, Jacky Ickx and Hurley Haywood hauled their 936 from 42nd into the lead, through foul conditions of rain and fog. Come Sunday afternoon, Barth managed to nurse the car across the line when it was running on only five cylinders. Truly one of Porsche's great race wins.
