Classic Cars (UK) - - Month In Cars -

It was the first time out for this Porsche since the Seven­ties. ‘This car was orig­i­nally raced only in Mex­ico,’ ex­plained owner Fred­erico Della Noce. ‘It won the 1972 1000kms of Mex­ico, one of the big­gest en­durance races of the era, driven by Guillermo ‘Memo Ro­jas’ who also be­came the Mex­i­can Sports Car cham­pion in that year.

‘Af­ter its Mex­i­can rac­ing ca­reer was over, the car moved to the US, but the SCCA se­ries at the time only seemed to have one rule – ‘free for all’ – so the car ended up dis­fig­ured by mod­i­fi­ca­tions.

‘We have spent the last two-and-a-half years restor­ing it to rac­ing con­di­tion and gone to great lengths to re­turn it to just the way it was in 1971. Get­ting all the lit­tle trims and de­cals just right has taken an aw­ful lot of ef­fort.’
