Last weekend I recorded a 1969 Porsche 917 (chassis 025) racing at Monza
Circuit during the "1000 km Challenge" race revival, a 3 hours race in
which race cars from 1960 to 1970 compete for the victory.
This Porsche 917-025 was built for Porsche AG as a long-tail version. In
1970 was converted into a 917 "K" (K stay for Kurzheck, "short" in german),
painted in white with blue stripes and sold to Team Zitro, from
The car is moved by a 4.5 liter Flat-12 engine which can produce 580hp at
8300 rpm and it's able to reach a top speed over 350 km/h (220 mph).

After lying idle for forty years, the Porsche 917 exhibited in the 24 Hours
of Le Mans Museum took to the tarmac again on 8 June 2010 at an exceptional
demonstration on the 24 Hours of Le Mans circuit, for the greatest pleasure
of all car racing buffs. On this occasion, the equally legendary Gérard
Larrousse, former pilot of this car and Le Mans winner in 1973 and 1974,
took the wheel again to drive back and forth a few times in the straight
section in front of the grandstand. A car of superlatives, probably the
most spectacular racing car having raced at Le Mans in the twentieth
century, it has been dubbed 'competition car of the century'.This
phoenix-like rebirth is the end result of painstaking efforts by the
Fondation du Patrimoine and Motul working together to safeguard and enhance
Après quarante années de repos et pour le plus grand plaisir de tous les
passionnés de course automobile, la Porsche 917 exposée au Musée des 24
Heures a repris du service le 8 juin 2010 lors d'une démonstration
exceptionnelle sur le circuit des 24 Heures du Mans. A cette occasion, le
non moins légendaire Gérard Larrousse, ancien pilote de cette voiture et
vainqueur au Mans en 1973 et 1974, a (re)pris place au volant pour
effectuer quelques allers-retours sur la ligne droite des tribunes. Voiture
de tous les superlatifs, probablement le plus spectaculaires des bolides
ayant couru au Mans au XXe siècle, elle fut nommée « voiture de
compétition du siècle ». Cette formidable renaissance a été rendue
possible grâce à l'action de la Fondation du Patrimoine et de Motul,
associés au service de la sauvegarde et la valorisation du patrimoine
A Le Mans' Hero: Porsche 917 - PURE RACECAR SOUNDS
When you think about racecars and Le Mans, you probably think about this:
the Porsche 917. You used to see this monster in videogames but in my video
you can finally see how it looks like in real world!
I'm proud to host on my channel this proper Le Mans hero, a Porsche 917/k
to be precise. The history of this incredible machine is way too long to be
reported here so I'll link its Wikipedia page:
I'll then stick to what it's like to see such a monster in real world; it's
just amazing: the car is lower than anything else, the sound it produces is
nearly disturbing due to its loudness! I cannot imagine what was like to
race at Le Mans or at the Nurburgring in one of these...

The Awesome 917 Porsche: Porches Racing
The Awesome Porsche 917.
This was pieced together from dozens of video clips, many of them not
having soundtracks or featuring that magnificent engine sound. I used the
music and multiple splices of engine audio tracks to give the video
continuity. Contrary to some of the posters interpretation, I did not sit
around with a pair of tin snips removing the sound of this wonderful car
from rare archival footage.
