The loss of festival within the 1973 SCCA Can-Am sequence obviously heralded its drawing close dying. “All Porsche, at all times. And more often than not, only one Porsche … Now not a compelling tale,” penned “Rapid Traces” columnist Pete Lyons within the newest factor of Antique Motorsport mag.

And it’s that Penske/Donohue Porsche that will get a lot of the point of interest in an August 2018 YouTube publish (via “HODIUSDUDE”) entitled “Seek – The Anatomy of Auto Racing (1973)”
