I know, I know…. I’m a bit obsessed with Porsche 935s and will find any excuse to write about them. To me, an 800 bhp GT car is something worth talking about… but if you consider 1999 to be ancient history, then perhaps it’s best to look away now.
I just found this fantastic ten minute clip on Youtube which shows some high-quality filmed footage from Sebring ’82. This was probably the last year that GT cars were at the forefront of American Endurance racing before Prototypes locked out the front of the grids. It’s too bad, as for me, it was a magic formula, to allow GTs to race against Prototypes for overall victory. Perhaps we should lobby Le Mans to adopt Super GT rules? Think they would go for that?
