Porsche 'workshop' Le Mans 1970, signed Brian Redman
Big and beautiful 18 x 18 inch print of this period shot of the Gulf Porsche workshops at Le Mans in 1970, hand signed by Brian Redman.
Disappointed by the poor results of the 917 in 1969 and facing a new competition, Porsche contracted John Wyer and the Gulf Team to become the official Porsche team, and also the official development partner. During tests in Zeltweg, Wyer's engineer John Horsmann had the idea to increase downforce to the expense of drag, a new tail was molded with aluminum sheets taped together. This worked well as the new short tail gave the 917 better stability. The new version was called 917 K (Kurzheck), 3 were entered for the race.
