On 'Moving Motor Show' Thursday of the FoS at Goodwood this 962 appeared in the paddock down by the Jaguars.

The number #7 suggests this may be 962 - 016, as used in the 1993 IMSA series.

while the door and the Paragon website suggests this might be the '89 Dijon WSC winning 962 - 011 as used in the 1993 Daytona 24 hours ?

Would any body know which if either of these two possibilities really is the case ?

There seems to be no mention of this car in the Goodwood programme notes at all.

Relevant answers may be used and credited in a forth coming blog.

Thanking you in anticipation of your responses.

It's definately 011. Dijon in 89 was the last Group C win for a Porsche. The chassis was also a winner at other Supercup races in 1989
016 is, I believe still owned by Reinhold Joest
