PORSCHE 911

FIA Race Car 1965

DESCRIPTION

The Porsche 911’s racing history started from the beginning in 1964, but it was first in the hands of the few private customers who raced their cars. Porsche factory entered the 911 first time in the Monte Carlo Rally in 1965 when Herbert Linge and Peter Falk drove their car to the 5th place. Porsche homologated the 911 to the FIA Group 3 in late 1965. It the years to come Porsche 911 became one of the most successful race cars of the history. Porsche 911´s were driven in the early years both in rally as well as at the race circuits.

 

Our race car has been spending its early life in USA and it was imported to Finland in early 1990´s. In 1995 it was build to a rally car by a Swedish Porsche specialist Perry Anderson from Perrys Motor for a Finnish rally driver Hannu Valtaharju. The car was converted to a circuit racing in 2000 and it was raced in historic race events in Finland during 2000-2016 by Pekka Korkeakoski. The car was then rebuild completely during the winter 2016/ 2017 by us. The new 901 race engine was build by Manfred Rugen in Germany and the racing gearboxes are build by Pukema Engineering who also maintain our race engines. New suspension, brakes and brake cooling, electrical fire extinquisher system, Mylaps X2 transponder, AIM MXn timing and data acquisition system among many other things have been installed. The car is fully optimized for circuit racing. We started test drive the car at Botniaring in July 2017. Now in fall 2020 the car has been driven by us over 8000 km on track in about 3 years. Now the car will go trough a major overhaul for the season 2021. The car is fully compliant with FIA and Peter Auto 2.0 Liter Cup regulations. The updated FIA HTP pass is valid until 2025.
