Porsche 917 Martini Racing 1971 Print

1971 is a year of records at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The long-tailed purpose-built 917 LH with Jackie Oliver behind the wheel isn’t the only one to make history. Make sure you own a small piece of the 1971 triumph by purchasing this Porsche 917 Martini racing art print by Peter Dials. 

There are new aerodynamic improvements to both the long and the short-tailed 917 K and also a new lighter magnesium chassis. So the car performs much better in every part of the race track.

The Ferrari 512 with drivers Vaccarella and Juncadella retires in the early morning hours because of a broken gearbox. The Martini Racing 917 #22 of Helmut Marko and Gijs van Lennep takes the lead. It does not let go until the end. They cross the finishing line with 397 laps covered and a total distance of 5 335 km.

No one manages to break this record in the next 39 years. The phenomenal speed of the 917 imposes changes to the Le Sarthe circuit in 1972. The length of the track is increased and the average speeds - lowered. That adds extra historical value to the Porsche 917 Martini record.

Peter Dials is the talented artist behind this Martini Porsche 917 poster. Celebrate the spirit of the iconic vehicle with our high-quality art print.
