1973 Porsche 911 RS Hurley HaywoodEndurance racing legend Hurley Haywood is reunited with his 1973 911 RS, 40 years after driving it to his first 12 hours of Sebring victory.

Narrated by Haywood himself, this clip shows the racing hero getting back into the groove behind the wheel of the car which earned him his first 12 hour Sebring title. He lovingly describes his surprise at the way that the car still handles, and talks of what it was (and is) like to drive at the iconic Florida racetrack. A great tale of the bond between race car and race driver.
