Porsche first ever overall victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans came in 1970, and the winning car was the 917K, race number 023, driven by Richard Attwood and Hans Herrmann.

Here, Richard Attwood describes the difficulties in the race and how the Porsche 917 had developed by 10970 to become the race winner that we know it as. You won’t want to miss his description of how it feels to drive a 917 in torrential rain through the night at over 200mph!
