[About the 917/30]
In the late 1960s, the 917 was one of the entrants for the World Sportscar Championship and Canadian -American Challenge Cup (Can-Am). It was equipped with a 12 cylinder engine along with a horizontal cooling fan, a light frame built from aluminum pipes and a FRP body. The car, starting with the 917H in 1969 and followed by the 917K, performed with incredible success in various races in Europe. In the same time period, other variants of the car (917PA, 917/10 etc) was entered into Can-Am, with one of the variants being the 917/30. Equipped with the turbo charger from the 917/10 and an upgraded engine, the 917/30 engine was capable of running at 1,100bhp. In 1973 Mark Donohue won 6 of 8 races at Can-Am with the 917/30, and managed to win series championship as a result. The car also set a speed record in a closed course speedway, and it’s power and speed gave it the title “the fastest sports car in history” during its time.
