Porsche 917/30 Can Am Spyder / Mark Donohue (details + revving + racing)
Watch Mark Donohue racing to CanAm Victory - The most powerful road racing machine ever created. The Beauty and the Beast. Invincible. I visited the Porsche Museum in 2014. To me it felt very special. You could smell the gasoline leaking out somewhere, as if it had run just before. The Circle has been closed, almost… Now I have to see it running.
