A wonderful period film detailing the 1970 World Sportscar Championship as remembered by John Wyer with appearances by Pedro Rodriguez, Jo Siffert, Leo Kinnunen, Brian Redman and many others. Porsche 917, Ferarri 512, Porsche 908 Mk3 Spyder and footage of Daytona, Le Mans, Spa-Francorchamps, Sebring, Targa Florio and many others...

This era of racing is why I fell in love with cars. I remember watching these races on TV as a kid. I had numerous HO, Tyco and Aurora AFX scale electric race car tracks with all of the Can Am era and 60's muscle car replicas. Great era of huge 4.5 and 5 liter 12 cylinder monsters from Ferrari, Porsche, Alfa, McLaren, etc. The men that drove these things were sheer animals on the tracks all around the world. We're fortunate to have these old films to watch today.

Great film! I attended the 6 hour race at Watkins Glen in 1971, and got to see the Gulf 917's driven by Jo Siffert and Derek Bell up close and personal. A 3 liter Alfa driven by Ronnie Peterson won the race, but what a treat to see those mighty 917's hammering down the back straight in the rain (no bus stop chicane back then) with a huge plume of spray, making that glorious noise! The Porsche 917 has been my all time favorite race car ever since!
