In the Spring Historics Season, we celebrated 50 years of Mustang.  But another iconic vehicle debuted in 1964:  the Porsche 911!  Ferdinand "Butzi" Porsche first drew up sketches for the 911 in 1959 as a larger, more comfortable replacement for the Porsche 356.  Little did Butzi or anyone know the 911 would stay in production for over 50 years.  Even Porsche tried to kill the 911 in the 80s with the front-engined 928, but customers kept buying the rear-engined 911.  We will be racing the 1972 2.5L ST version of the 911.  This version uses the original 1964 body style, and was factory modified.  An “ST” is a very rare car with fewer than 20 examples receiving the full factory racing kit.  Its a drivers car, very light and agile but not possessing overwhelming power.

To match up with these 911s, we have picked a nice variety of European circuits.  You should find both old classics and some new favorites in the mix.  And yes friends, we are running the Green Hell!  :headbang:
