Porsche 936 Wins LeMans in 1976
The Porsche 936 was a racing car introduced in 1976 by Porsche as a delayed
successor to the Porsche 908, a three litre sportscar prototype which was
retired by the factory after 1971. Its name came from using a variant of
the Porsche 930's turbocharged engine,
as well as competing in Group 6 racing.
It was built to compete in the World Sportscar Championship as well as at
1976 24 Hours of Le Mans under the Group 6 formula, which it won both of.
Chassis 002 with #20 won with Jacky Ickx and Gijs van Lennep won Le Mans,
while the #18 chassis 001 of Reinhold Joest and Jürgen Barth had engine
failure. It shared these victories with its production-based sibling, the
Porsche 935 which won in Group 5. The open top, two seater spyder was
powered by an air-cooled, two-valve 540 hp (403 kW) single-turbocharger flat-6 engine with 2140 cc, or the
equivalent of 3000 cc including the 1.4 handicap factor. The spaceframe
chassis was based on the 917, with many of the parts also coming from the
car. In the first outings, the Martini Racing car was still black,and the
engine cover behind the roll bar was flat. The large hump and the air box
above the engine was fitted onto the car later in the season. It is not for
the air intake of the turbocharged
engine, nor for cooling of the air-cooled engine itself, but instead mainly
used for the Intercooler.
From 1976 to 1981, the factory entered Porsche 936 won the 24 Hours of Le
Mans three times with Jacky Ickx ('76, '77, '81), thus each of the three
original chassis won once. In 1978, the two previously winning chassis,
which had been updated for 1977, came second and third behind the Renault,
while the pole-setting new chassis 003 crashed out. Porsche did not intend
to sell the 936 to customers, wanting them instead to use the 935 (which
occupied the first four places at Le Mans in 1979), and the old 908 which
were still around, updated to turbo
engines and new 936-like aerodynamics. In 1979, a half-hearted
Essex-sponsored Le Mans entry with two 936 was a failure, and the car also
crashed at Silverstone. Porsche engineers provided some unofficial
support to very good customers, though, and Joest managed to get a spare
chassis (004) and parts to assemble a car which was in 1980 designated as
Porsche 908/80 and entered privately by Joest Racing. The Martini Racing
Liqui Moly backed car took second at Le Mans in 1980. Kremer received
blueprints to recreate a modified '81-spec car dubbed chassis 005 for 1982.
The successor Porsche 956 was introduced in 1982 after the new 2650 cc
engine designed for Indycar was tested in the 1981 winning chassis 003
which was sponsored by Jules. At the inaugural year of the new Group C
formula which the 956 was built for, privateer teams such as Kremer Racing
and Joest Racing had to wait until 1983 for their 956. Thus, in an attempt
to conform to the new Group C regulations, both teams built new bodyshapes
that incorporated a roof onto their 936-replicas. Joest's car was
designated as 936C JR005 while Kremer's car became known as the CK5 01.

2012 Sebring 12 Hour - SVRA Sprint Race
SVRA Vintage Sprint Race on Friday March 16... it was great to be part of
the Sebring 12 Hour 60th Anniversary celebration. Made a lousy start but
still had a fun race compared to Thursday's enduro. Caught up to everyone
soon enough, and might have even gotten by the 240Z and 911 if not for an
Alfa in the wrong place at the wrong time. Just one more lap!
Starting to really appreciate the grip of old-school Goodyear bias-plys.
TRUTH IN 24 II - Every Second Counts
The Le Mans 24 Hours are a legend. They are mentioned in the same breath as
the Rallye Monte Carlo, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500.
Since 1923, hundreds of thousands of motorsport enthusiasts have been
flocking to La Sarthe year by year to experience the one-day race. To watch
the protagonists in their sports cars battle for each place and each meter
of tarmac with bated breath. The drivers cover 4,800 kilometers in 24 hours
- almost as many as the Formula One racers in a whole year. Every Le Mans
winner has gone down in history. The three Audi drivers Andr‚Äö
Lotterer, Beno≈ít Tr‚Äöluyer and Marcel F‚Äûssler did so in a
special way with the triumph they achieved in 2011. The film TRUTH IN 24 II
documents the tenth and arguably most emotional triumph of the brand with
the four rings at this sports car classic. After two Audi R18 TDI cars have
retired following spectacular accidents, the remaining Audi fights a
dramatic battle for overall victory with the three Peugeot 908 cars ? which
the Audi trio ultimately decides in its favor with a narrow margin of 13
seconds. The film captures the entire drama of the fourth-narrowest running
of the Le Mans 24 Hours ? with intimate insights into the team of Audi
Sport and breath-taking pictures.
