    Yeah, a beautiful car. I did get to see Project 214 race on a couple of occasions. Again, a beautiful car in every sense.

    These photos are superb. What is car #17 on post 27? I have vague recollections of a vintage Porsche 917 running at Le Mans in the late 70s and gaining a bit of notoriety for the fact it was several years old. Is this the car?

    Absolutely stunning photos, thanks for posting.

    The #17 Porsche is 1976, Joest 908/3 driven by Kraus and Steckonig, finished 7th o/all.

    Wasn't the "old" 917 a bit more modern, at the start of the GT era that followed GpC ?

    Thanks Steve & pallmall - I'm really enjoying loading all my old pix
    Fortunately I've still got the Programme officiel - pallmall is correct in that it's a Porsche 908/3 Turbo entered by the Jost Racing Team but it was driven by J. Reinhold & J. Barth according to the programme.
    However Wikipedia says that the car finished 7th and was driven by Kraus & Steckonig.
    I haven't heard about the 917 running in the late 70's. it certainly wasn't entered in '76 or '77.

    Do you have photos of the other classes at that Bay Park event Nigel?

    I keep going back to your Le Mans photos. They really are stunning, and that was such a wonderful period in the history of that race.
