to the start of an interesting project. We will be transforming
this factory RSR Turbo back into a regular factory Martini
RSR. Based on the history that we have, this is the very first
911 based car to have a turbocharger put on it. Right now
the car is 100% original from when it last raced in 1974.
It was raced by the factory then sold to Vasek Polak, who
never ran the car, then it was obtained by the current owner
Jeff Hayes. We've had the car for several years and have taken
it out on a few occasions.
As a turbo
the car only did one race, the 1000 kilometers of Imola in
1974. Driven by Schurti/Koinigg the car retired due to a turbocharger
a week ago Minichamps models came to photograph our Van Halen
GT3-R and was kind enough to give us a good amount of models.
Oddly enough one of those models was of this car in it's 1973
normally aspirated livery with which it won the 1973 1000
kilometers of Dijon.
normally aspirated history is as follows. 2nd in class &
8th overall at the 1973 6 hours of Valleunga with Lennep/Mueller.
1st in class & 9th overall at the 1973 1000 kilometers
of Dijon with Lennep/Mueller. 5th overall at the 1973 1000
kilometers of Spa with Lennep/Mueller. At the 1973 1000 kilometers
of the Nurburgring Follmer/Kauhsen qualified on pole but had
moment we're still digging up some more history on the car.
