    Porsche team racing photo 1953

    Hey guys !! I just received this photo and wondered which track was it taken. It says Le Mans 1953 but doubt as Hanstein and Glockler were participants. And, who is the gentleman seated ?? Any thoughts appreciated !! 2DDB5190-736C-4EC3-A7A3-D225CE44AC5A.jpg6290F3D1-CE10-4284-9DE0-047B0F46ED56.jpg

    Mystery solved !! It is ‘53 LeMans as this photo is in the great book, Porsche by Mailander written by Karl Ludvigsen !! I guess that they changed clothes during the 24 hours !! FDC1E548-7CC6-4B45-BBDC-429EE4BE5D29.jpg

    Thanks Stephen. The seated gentleman is probably Walter Glockler.
