Outside chance

3d ago


Our first outright win at the Le Mans 24 Hours came from unexpected quarters. The Salzburg 917 Kurzheck, run in conjunction with the official factory campaign, featured the smaller 4.5-litre powertrain and was driven by works newbie Richard Attwood and seasoned racer Hans Herrmann. Having started from 15th place, car No. 23 drove a steady race in terrible weather to assume the lead in the dead of night. The following afternoon they took the chequered flag some five laps ahead of the second-place 917 Langheck entered by Martini Racing.
