Porsche 917/30 – Penske Racing -Mark Donohue – Can-Am 1973

Here is my version of the Porsche 917/30 that is the highlight of the AC Porsche Pack 1.

I started painting Donohue’s helmet and suit since I was annoyed to see the car in game with an anonymous red helmet. This 917/30 is one of the very few cars that are forever associated with a single pilot, not only because they used it for great success but also because they were instrumental in their development. The 917-30 is partly Donohue’s child as he was involved in the engineering work at Weissach and then of course in Penske’s workshop.

There is a full chapter in Donohue’s book “The unfair advantage” about the development and racing history of the car. I enjoyed very much reading it, just like the rest of the book.

Then I could not help myself from repainting the whole car, to make it a bit more complete and historically accurate in details than Kunos’ version.
