Called “one of the strongest racing cars of all time”, this advanced 12-cylinder vehicle dominates circuit races. With Mark Donohue at the wheel, it beats out McLaren with a long lead for the second time in the CanAm Series. It’s the first time that turbochar ging has prevailed on a race course with so many curves. Fed up with the dominance of Porsche, the Americans change the racing regulations, which results in the exclusion of the 917.
