    Owned by a couple of brothers who also have a GT40 - both bought for next to nothing in the seventies after the rules of sports car racing were changed - this also outlawed the 512M Ferrari - Porsche took the 917 to Can-Am racing in the USA hence the blue Sunoco Porsche 917-30 also at Goodwood - this later version held the closed circuit world record at about 250 mph for many years - both the 917 & GT40 have seven figure values

    Here is Part 2 (of 3) of my photos from yesterday. This includes most of the Sunday Times In Gear Supercar group going up the hill, and as usual, I filtered through and have put what I think where the best out of what I took on to my site.

    It was raining lightly at the beginning of the run, and as you might see in the photos, began to get worse. Some of the cars took it easy, although the LP640, Superleggera, 997 GT3 RS, Prodrive AMV8, 997 Turbo and the Veyron still decided to put their foot down as much as they could considering the conditions.
    The 997 GT3 RS didnt seem to be affected by the Wet, and gave it some up the hill. The Veyron misjudged the corner slightly and took a bit of mud with it (have got a zoomed out picture I can post up later). And the 997 Turbo stopped and then gave a quick wheel spin. Which you can see in my photos due to the balance of the car pitching forwards, then backwards.

    48 images at the link below -

    And some low-res versions attatched.

    Enjoy!

    Part two of the reply since I was able to ask the owner last night : this particular car was raced by all three men who since died - John Piper was an English sports car racer in the late 70's & early 80's
