Ex-Roger Penske / Mark Donohue Can Am Porsche 917-30 S/N 004 starts up and drives away

Watkins Glen International offically opened on Sunday, April 26, 2009. In conjunction with the release of Michael Argetsinger's Mark Donohue biography, "Mark Donohue Technical Excellence at Speed" a number of restored Donohue race cars were present. As were Team Penske members, past and present, members of the Donohue family, childhood friends, etc. At one point it was time to start up the 917-30 and drive back to the transporter. I saw Mark Donohue win the 1973 Watkins Glen Can Am in one of these cars. Be sure to visit Paul Powell's website http://www.unfairadvantageracing.com/

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 and the 917/30. 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.
