Targa Florio, Italy / 13 May 1973

 

The Porsche 911 Carrera RSR was the star of the 1973 racing season. And at the legendary Targa Florio, the car stood out as being head-and-shoulders above the rest. 

In front of a reported 700,000 Sicilian spectators, the Martini-sponsored model was driven to victory by talented Dutch driver Gijs van Lennep, and two-time Florio winner, Herbert Müller. Navigating the twisting mountain roads with skill and precision, the pair saw off the likes of Jacky Ickx, who crashed out in his prototype Ferrari, as well as a strong challenge from the successful Lancia Stratos. 

The race represented a special coming together between car and track: it was the immensely impressive RSR’s debut season; but it was the last ever Targa Florio to be run as a World Sportscar Championship race due to a number of awful accidents and fatalities.
