... Or ruined, depending on your point of view... :p

I wasn't sure where to post this, awesome thread, or it the dedicated motorsports subforum, anyways...

This is a scan from GT Purely Porsche who ran a short story about the 1972 and 1973 season of the Can-Am championship, and how Porsche came in dominating it while kicking McLaren off their throne, fairly violently... In 1972 the turbocharged 917s won six out of nine races, in 1973 they took all with Donohue and the Penske team taking six of eight.

Awesome cars, even more awesome drivers, who had the balls of steel to drive these. RIP Mark Donohue... :(
