sports car week … wheel to wheel

the Ferrari 512M of Mario Andretti & Ignazio Giunti battling it out with the Gulf Porsche 917K of Jo Siffert & Brian Redman at the 1970 Watkins Glen 6 Hours

behind them are the 2nd factory 512M of & the Gulf Porsche 917K of Pedro Rodriguez & Leo Kinnunen - they would win the race, the n°1 Porsche would come home 2nd, Andretti & Giunti finished 3rd

further in the background we see Richard Attwood & Kurt Ahrens Jr. in the Audi Porsche 917K (32), Gijs van Lennep & Gérard Larrousse in the Martini & Rossi Porsche 917 (35), Vic Elford & Denny Hulme in the 2nd Audi Porsche 917K (31) & the Ecurie Bonnier Lola-Chevrolet T70 MkIIIB of Jo Bonnier & Reine Wisell

in sync …

Pedro Rodriguez (10, Gulf Porsche 917K) chasing Vic Elford’s Porsche Salzburg entered car (11, Porsche 917K)

Pedro Rodriguez (teamed up with Leo Kinnunen) absolutely dominated a torrential 1970 BOAC 1000km at Brands Hatch in his Gulf Porsche 917K
after having only qualified 7th on the grid in dry conditions, come race day Rodriguez just annilihated the rest of the field, showing his supreme wet weather skills in combination with a perfect Porsche 917K, he drove 5 & a half hours of the 6 hour race & put the rest of the field on minimum 5 laps

that other rain specialist Jacky Ickx (in the factory Ferrari 512S) also fought for the lead, but was hampered by a failing rain wiper

watch a great review of the race here
