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).

Porsche 917 at LeMans
The Porsche 917 is a racecar that gave Porsche its first overall wins at
the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970 and 1971. Powered by the Type 912 flat-12
engine of 4.5, 4.9, or 5 litres, the 917/30 variant was capable of a 0-62
mph (100 km/h) time of 2.3 seconds, 0--124 mph (200 km/h) in 5.3 seconds,
and a top speed of over 240 mph (390 km/h).
There are at least nine variants of the 917. The original version had a
medium-long tail with flippers, but had considerable handling problems at
high speed because of poor bodywork aerodynamics. The Weyer-Gulf team then
experimented with a shorter tail, and solved the aerodynamic and handling
problems at testing sessions at the Österreichring, at the expense of some
top speed. Porsche adopted these changes into the 917K, which dominated in
the 1970 and 1971 World Sportscar Championships. In 1971, a variant of the
917K appeared with an altered tail and shark fins, which together reduced
drag and maintained down force. These versions produced around 620 bhp.
There were also streamlined versions for Le Mans (1970 917L and 1971 917LH)
that were 20 mph faster in a
straight line. In 1971 Jo Siffert raced an open-top 917PA Spyder (normally
aspirated) in the 1971 CanAm series.
There is also the "Pink Pig" aerodynamic research version (917/20), and the
turbocharged 917/10 and 917/30 CanAm
Spyders. Porsche 917s also raced in the European Interseries in various
configurations. In the 1973 Can-Am series, the turbocharged version Porsche 917/30 developed
1,100 bhp (820 kW).
The 917 is one of the most iconic sports racing cars of all time, largely
for its high speeds and high power outputs, and was made into a movie star
by Steve McQueen in his 1971 film Le Mans.

How to Start a Yamaha after it's been left for years in the garden
Here we have a 1985 Yamaha FZ750. It is the very rare 2GH model as ridden
by Eddie Lawson in the 1986 Daytona 200 to victory with full livery by Troy
Lee Designs. Sadly it has been left for years outside in a garden with the
sea air/rain on it with nothing but a sheet over it. I have removed the
petrol tank to access the fuel supply and have repaired some of the faulty
wiring which probably was the cause of this superbikes demise. I am now
going to completely strip the bike down and restore her to her former
while I welcome constructive comments, I will not tolerate foul language,
swear words and any racist or other comments which may be deemed offensive
to some people
If you make any such comments that comment will be removed and you will be
reported to YouTube my channel is viewed by young and old alike, please
bear this in mind.
