Gulf 917. The Porsche 917 is one of the most successful and iconic racing cars of all time, thanks in part to its starring role in the Steve McQueen film, Le Mans. This volume presents a detailed chassis-by-chassis and race-by-race history of the Porsche 917s raced by the John Wyer/Gulf team. The book includes the history leading to the 917 and the partnership between Porsche, Gulf and JW Automotive Engineering. The cars profiled in the book were instrumental in Porsche’s taking of the 1970 and 1971 World Sportscar Championship titles as the Gulf-Porsche 917s won 11 of the 17 championship races entered.

Written with assistance from JWAE Chief Engineer, John Horsman, the book includes scans of his original race data sheets. The book also includes numerous rarely seen photos, many from Porsche’s archive. Detailed post-Gulf histories are presented for each car. Relive the exploits of driving legends Jo Siffert, Pedro Rodriguez and teammates Brian Redman, Leo Kinnunen, Derek Bell and Jackie Oliver as they race the Gulf 917s on the fast tracks of an evocative motorsport era.

Au delà de tous les nombreux indispensables ouvrages que l'on peut trouver, sur ce " si joli Monstre mythique", a savoir la 917, ce très "lourd & épais" book, que l'oon a ici, est une veritable tuerie, en matière de données, data's, d'informations historik's, de Fotos( certaines inédites!),;; on apprend tout sur cette "IconiK emblème " de la course Automotive .. Si l'on doit ouvrir, lire , & bien-sùr posséder qu'un livre sur cette Porsche, c'est bien GULF917;; ... Les travaux de recherches de J.Gillotti sont riches et exceptionnels..
