Mark Donohue Javelin SST 1970 Stored in Trailer for over 20 years rescued unloaded forklifted
This is a video capturing the unloading of a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST
that was stored in a trailer for over 20 years. I was a little scared
filming this as I did not want to be posting a video of the destruction of
a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST, personally I would have cut the roof off
the trailer and taken the car out with a helicopter, not to worry though as
there were 2 guys inside the trailer ready to catch the car if it fell or
tipped over ...but alas, as risky as it was, a success!!!! 2 other cars
were stored in the trailer as well, a super low mile Gremlin and I think it
was a 1979 AMX, but this was the treasure we were digging for!!!!!! On the
spoiler you will notice "401", this was originally a 390 and if I remember
right it is a Big Bad Orange, Orange or Green, it was not a bad re-paint
but the inside of the door jam reveals the original color, a nice find!!!
The car is in fantastic condition! This was not accomplished on the first
attempt, a few mis-fires happened but it all was okay in the end!

Roger Penske's Racing History - Part 2
Part 2: Before becoming a winner in Indy Car and NASCAR competition, Penske
Racing dominated the American sports car scene. In this installment, Roger
Penske laid the foundation for his race team by hiring Mark Donohue. The
pair won the 1969 Rolex 24 At Daytona and captured USRRC, Trans-Am and
Can-Am championships, paving the way for Penske Racing's move into Indy Car
and NASCAR. See more at www.alltelracing.com

Another historic car, which was present at the 2012 Concorso d'Eleganza, is
the 1970 Porsche 917K.
Disappointed by the poor results of the 917 in 1969, Porsche decided to
find a solution that could have improved the car for the next 1970 racing
season. The answer was to "cut the tail" of the car. So they put in the
name of the car the letter "K", in order to underline the distinctive
feature of the new 917 ( K stay for "kurzheck" which means "short"). The
car was been equipped with a new 4.9 liters flat-12 engine (the previous
was 4.5 liters) which permitted the car to reach a power of about 600 - 620
bhp and a top speed of 390 km/h (240 mph).
The car was able to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in both 1970 and in 1971.

HGP1015 Solitude Revival - Der Test - Porsche 917 am Salzburgring
Further informations on facebook, Solitude Revival - Der Film.

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
