It was rather inevitable, wasn't it? After the help from this forum in identifying mechanics from other teams, I come with the begging bowl again.

 

I've had great help from Porsche employees past and present in identifying crew members for the captions in the forthcoming Ickx book, but three remain a mystery. Can anyone help with the identities of these three gentlemen?

 

First photo - 936 Launch at Weissach, 1976. The guy on the right is Günther Gutekunst, but who is the fellow on the left?

Second photo - 1978 Norisring Trophy - who is the gentleman half-obscured by the cameraman on the left, and who is the guy standing behind the car?

As ever, any and all help is hugely appreciated.

I have not befriended him on FB but I am quite sure Juergen Barth would be more than willing to help Jon :- https://www.facebook...jurgen.barth.37

Indeed, RC - Jürgen has been in Laos until recently and has been called away until this weekend. He's acknowledged my message and hopefully can assist; I'm just mindful that we have a print deadline looming so I am trying to cover all bases!

Print deadline?   Make the publisher wait until it's as right as you can get it, John...     :smoking:

It's a fair shout, but given the help and support that Evro have given to me I do all I can to work collaboratively! And we've been editing the manuscript since February! It's me making last minute tweaks that probably doesn't help...

 

I have to say it's exceeded all my expectations, and having Jacky's direct input and collaboration has made a world of difference. Hopefully the Ickx fans (and the fans of the eras and genres in which he competed) will enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it.
