Porsche 907 race log
Posted 02 January 2012 - 13:23
The pdf-file is available for download from my website:
Please note this file is a work-in-progress. I have been especially careful about filling in chassis numbers, since I don't just want to rely on other websites without some sort of verification. Zuffenhausen is on my to-visit list for this year anyway.
Who can add anything to the race log? Even if it's just a missing start number, it'll be appreciated. Comments, corrections and questions are also welcomed.

It was brought to Vancouver by the mysterious Ted Rowbotham along with two 906s. He claimed to have "found" them all in Portugal...

Can you tell me a little more about when you saw the car in Vancouver? In Portugal, it had a very pretty red/orange and black livery, did it still look like that in Canada? Did you make any photos or perhaps write an article for the magazine you mentioned, "Vantage" ?

I regret that I was simply not aware of how important photographs would be 33 years after first seeing the three cars! They were quite a sight-the two 906s side by side and the 907 on a trestle over their noses. I am afraid I cannot recall the colours now.
Peter Price died over three years ago down in Portland Oregon where he had moved in 1981. One of these days I am going to write a series of stories about my trips with him picking up wonderful historic racing cars in the seventies. Peter's full name was Peter Bolingbroke-Price and he was descended from the Bolingbroke family--Henry the Fifth and all that... He had a remarkable physical resemblance to Henry the Eighth, but he wasn't a Bolingbroke, was he?

In addition, I have reworked the file so that overall- and class results are easier to spot, and there have been several corrections here and there.
