    Pardon the sequence.....................photo #2 obviously belongs at the end of the post.

    Another set, devoted to two of the most historic & successful Porsche motorsports entries ever.

    The white / red George Follmer 5-liter 917-10 with which Follmer won 6 of the 9 Can-Am races in '72, and the blue / yellow '73 Mark Donohue driven and developed 5.4 liter 917-30 championship-winning /record-braking masterpiece which essentially killed off the CAN-AM series by it's other-worldly dominance - with Donohue scoring 6 wins in a row in this very car. To hear these cars warming up and taking a few demonstartion laps is alone worth the trip and all of one's time at the Rennsport Reunions.

    Another PORSCHE milestone that deserves its own set of photos is the '85 championship-winning Mcaren F-1 powered by the TAG.sponsored, Hans Metzger-designed, Porsche-built 1.5 liter twin turbo 6-cylinder motor.

    a few more sets from the tent, this time Dr. Helmuth Bott's personal 959, his company car essentially. which served frequently as Weissach's test mule while the model was being developed there.

    The yellow car is the ex-Jochen Rohr GT1 '97 24 Hours of Daytona winner.

    The Bott's 959 prototype is funny with its pascha cloth seats.
    And thank you for its VIN, from a 1985 930, like many 959 prototypes.

    The last set of images from the tent........I simply have to end this soon and get on with my life. Ubortunately, then site has chosen to spoil the last set from the tent..................images #7 & 8 of the LeMans winning 936 should, of course, be shown as # 3 & 4.
