I took 1500 photos and whittled it down to ~860. Here’s the best out of that. Hence why RRVI was weeks ago now and I’m only now done editing...
Let’s see if kinja survives this...
It was a truly epic time. I also got a bunch of signatures on some things from these guys: Jacky Ickx, Mark Webber, Jeff Zwart, David Donahue, Chad McQueen, Norbert Singer, Hurley Haywood, Hans Mezger, George Follmer, Derek Bell, Jackie Oliver, Brian Redman, David Piper, Willi Kauhsen, Gijs Van Lennep, Vic Elford, Richard Atwood, Gerard Larrousse, David Hobbs, and Rudi Lins.
If you haven’t gone and want to, you have to go to Rennsport Reunion. It’s truly amazing. I went for all 4 days and never had a slow moment in order to take it all in. There’s so much to see it’s insane. And yes the drivers do push the cars. Saw multiple 917 can-am cars spin out... and they were only doing exhibition laps.
You’ll never see all of these cars in any other place.
Also for those wondering about that gulf 917 on the tow-truck. Yes that is THE 1970 24-hours of Daytona winner that is owned by Bruce Canepa. He was pushing hard and blew an oil line during qualifying. Luckily his team fixed it and it ran the race the next day. I think it got 2nd. A ridiculous 908/2 won their class by a huge margin.
