SPARK 1:43 WICKY RACING TEAM 1971 LE MANS 907
When we think back to Porsche’s earliest overall wins at Le Mans, it’s easy to forget some of the entries beyond 1970’s Salzburg 917 K and the following year’s winner, the Martini Racing 917 K driven by Gijs van Lennep and Helmut Marko. Thankfully, die-cast model manufacturer, Spark, is keeping memories alive by producing small-scale versions of the runner-up Porsches giving triumphant cars a run for their money. This 1:43 resin depiction of the no.49 Wicky Racing Team 907 driven to seventh place by Walter Brun and Peter Mattli at Sarthe in 1971, for example, is a fantastic example of Spark’s enthusiasm for the under-appreciated race cars of yesteryear. Beautifully detailed, the diminutive speed machine even features replica duct tape pasted around the offside headlight, just as the Wicky car wore during the race. Presented on a commemorative plinth in a presentation display case, this mini motorsport model can be ordered direct from the Selection RS online store.
