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.
