    Some photos of one of the favorite attractions at the Canepa Motorsports Museum, our 1969 Porsche 917K-015. Winner of the 1970 24 Hours of Daytona by a crushing 45 laps (a record that still stands.) Driven by Pedro Rodriguez, Leo Kinnunen, and Brian Redman.

    You may notice some interesting features that were required by sportscar regulations in 1970 such as the spare tire, turn key ignition, luggage trays behind the rear wheels, and turn signals. Other items are a funtional horn, and passenger seat (not currenlty in the car.) The fan on top of the engine is for cooling the air-cooled 5.0 liter flat-12 engine.

    And, yes, Bruce will be racing this legend on track at the Porsche Rennsport Reunion V.
