Video: One Lap in a 1969 Porsche 908 LH at Rennsport V

Porsche 908 Longtail

Gunnar Jeannette introduces this 1969 Porsche 908 LH, before rolling out onto Laguna Seca and gunning it at Rennsport Reunion V.

Gunnar’s introduction to this video is brilliant. In it, he explains some of the 908 Longtail’s technical trickery, as well as when and where it was raced, and why. It’s a great little intro to the car’s unique traits.

From there it’s out onto the track in the historic 908. The car he’s driving was built for the 24 Hours of Daytona ,where it dropped out. It went on to finish second at Monza and then win at Spa with Brian Redman and Jo Siffert driving.

With no embellishments to distract from the song of the motor and some very tidy historic racing, this is some magic footage. The on-board starts slow with the formation lap and rolling start, but once the race is given the ‘Go!’ signal Gunnar tramps it and the result is glorious.

Take a few minutes, and enjoy.
