I don’t usually take the carpet-bomb approach to capturing the perfect moment, but when it comes to the randomness of flaming exhausts, it can sometimes be the best option to just hold down that shutter button and hope something cool comes out. Fortunately, these Bavarian bruisers were happy to give me repeat performances during the Deutsche Rennsport-Meisterschaft at the Nürburgring last weekend, and it seemed a shame to throw the ‘pre and post-ignition’ frames away….Full AvD Oldtimer GP post coming soon!
Sadly I missed this year’s AvD Oldtimer GP, but here’s a sweet RSR I shot there last year. Wide-body? Check. Fat wheels? Check. Whale-tail? Check. Super-seventies two-tone paint? Check. Yep, it’s definitely a bona-fide ‘ring monster.
While it seems that the 917 gets all the Porsche endurance racer love, I’ve always preferred the pretty 910 (and it’s development the 907).
