Love the metallic blue on the 550. A different Porsche hue, but a lovely color.
Most kind of you Laurence, as always, you know things and how to tell a good story😉, even if it’s tragic. So 1971 was a sad year for Motorsport, at least they died doing what they loved, that’s also why I respect too much all those old drivers that still walk among us, Marko, Stewart, Ickx…Daniel
The driver in your 908/3 is Jo Siffert. Pedro had two competitive outings in the car during 1971, namely, the Targa Florio with Herbie Muller (retired after a crash), and the Nurburgring (second).
In July, 1971, Pedro was suddenly gone. Another tragic accident during an Interserie race in the 512 at the Norisring. Jo Siffert died in the BRM at Brands Hatch during the same year.
Another senseless crash in 1971 also claimed the life of Ignazio Giunti in a 312.
