Submitted by on December 7, 2011

The 31st of January, 1970 and the 1970 World Sportscar Championship is ready to burst from the line at the 24 Hours of Daytona. Porsche had won the International Championship of Makes in ’69, but Daytona marked the start of a new season, packed with tension, anticipation and possibilities.

Porsche had their 908s and 917s, Ferrari had the 512. The likes of Mario Andretti, Pedro Rodríguez, Jo Siffert and Vic Elford are behind the wheel.

This magnificent four-part video, packed with classic racing footage and presented by Porsche, recaps the season in gloriously retro style.
