The Porsche 917/10-002
The name Jo Siffert stands sideways on the Porsche 917/10-002. Jo Siffert has driven over 100 Formula 1 races, he only managed to win two. Quite different was the track record as a Porsche racer. With Porsche Jo Siffert wins almost all endurance races. He also drove this Porsche 917 / 10-002. With a weight of about 750 kg, the legendary 12-cylinder boxer engine with about 650 hp and a displacement of 4999cm3, this Spyder is always a competitive race car on the racetracks. Proof of this are the numerous successes of Jo Siffert in this Porsche in the CanAm racing series.
The racing car is now in German possession and was professionally rebuilt after a long break. Jürgen Barth is one of the first racing drivers to be able to move the elderly Porsche around the racetrack again. A first RollOut was already in early 2018 in Paul Ricard and the first race took place in early April in Barcelona. Jürgen Barth drives the competition proverbially “around the ears”. When wet, he overtakes car by car. His partner takes over the wheel also lap by lap peak times, but then comes the premature end by a small technical defect. Pity were both, racing cars and racers but in good shape. Due to the failure, Jürgen Barth had time to sign his new racing cookbook at MotorsMania. Also a successful story!
