The information given in the e-hobbies link in Mr Max' post is misleading.

It states:

March 83G Kreepy Krauly -
This Porsche powered March 83G carried Al Holbert to the 1983 driving championship and also won its class in the 1984 Daytona 24 hour race.


The Kreepy Krauly car - chassis 83G-4 - was originally bought by Holbert Racing and then sold to Kreepy Krauly in late 1983. The car was upgraded to 84G specs and won the 1984 Daytona 24-Hours, driven by the South African team of Sarel Van Der Merwe, Graham Duxbury and Tony Martin. Van Der Merwe also won the 1984 Lime Rock IMSA round with the Porsche powered car.

Al Holbert, driving both a Holbert Racing March 83G Chevrolet and the March 83G Porsche. won the 1983 IMSA title. Holbert switched to a Porsche 962 in 1984, but the March was still the car to beat with Randy Lanier, driving the Blue Thunder Racing Team March 83G/84G Chevrolet, winning the 1984 title.
