Along with that, lots of previously unpublished documents and photos from the factory’s archive are presented – unveiling exceptional backstage views of the then young brand Porsche, plus interviews with directly involved contemporary witnesses. Moreover, US-American Porsche expert Steve Heinrichs researched every single race of all Porsche racing cars with Carrera engine- there where about 14 000 – so that this book gives the first full account on the history of those races. ln doing so, he gained a full documentation of all chassis and engine numbers with condition on delivery and motorsports’ history.
