The Driver Suit Blog-Throwback Thursday-1970 #3 Porsche 917L

Gérard Larrousse and Willi Kauhsen 1970 #3 Porsche 917L

Ugh! Who thought this was a good idea? Let’s take an amazing looking automobile, the Porsche 917L, give it a great shade of blue, and then paint gaudy red-yellowish flames on the sides and top. Add in one of the worst looking numbers I’ve seen on the side of a race car, and you have an awful look. I can’t give this anything more than a D-, the shade of blue keeping this car from failing.

I'm just a normal guy who collects race-worn driver suits, helmets, sheet metal, and other race-worn items. I will use this blog to help collectors, and race fans alike understand the various aspects of driver suits and helmets, and commentate on paint schemes.
