1971 Porsche 914-6
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.’
