1970 914/6 GT

Historically Significant


This car was one of the three factory Porsche 914/6 GTs entered in the Marathon de la Route at the Nürburgring in August 1970 and ran as a Group 4 GT; the other two, with rear wheels one inch wider at eight inches, were relegated to Group 6 Prototype. Three-and-a-half days of racing later, of the 64 starters in the Marathon, only 23 remained on the circuit. Ahead of the rest of the field by a wide margin were the three 914/6 GTs, with #2 finishing 3rd OA. DRIVERS: Claude Ballot Lena, F. Gunther Steckkoning, D.Nicolas Koob.
