Another Swiss Carrera:
This one was driven by Claude Haldi during the 1975 season with success. Haldi eventually won the ’75 Porsche Cup, which is the prize awarded by the factory for the most successful private driver of the year.
Although it shared the same sponsor and yellow paint with the 74 Carrera engaged under the banner of the Porsche Club Romand, it was a different car.
The skin is based on the livery of the Norisring European GT race.
This skin is based on the Carrera used by Bernard Cheneviere during 1974, at Le Mans and in various events, notably in the European GT series.
This livery is well-known for several reasons: the yellow-red combination is eye-catching; we all have had a taste of the sponsor^^; Cheneviere used it both on a 908 and a 911 in the early part of the 1970’s; and the restored car is a often engaged in Porsche gatherings and youngtimers’ races.
Speaking of the restored car, you have noticed if you saw it that it is in red and beige colors (like the Toblerone 908), rather than red and yellow. I relied on period pictures and forum discussions for the yellow color.
I intended to reproduce the Spa race version. Unfortunately the tail uv map of the Kunos model is flawed. It was therefore impossible to paint it as it should – or there would be yellow wipers… ^^
This is a well-known livery from the 74 and 75 years in German motor racing.
Tebernum was one of the top teams in DRM and European GT, competing with Kremer, Gelo and Max Moritz. Their main driver was Clemenz Schickentanz, who had won the European GT series in 1973.
This livery is based on the car of the Zolder Trophy in 1975. Schickentanz’s co-drivers were Hartwig Bertrams and Reine Wisell.
During most of the 70’s, Georg Loos’ racing team was a serious contender in GT series. Backed by the factory and with top drivers, they won many races in European circuits.
Gelo Racing engaged up to three RSRs during the 1975 season. This skin is based on Fitzpatrick’s car at the Norisring European GT race, which he won.
They raced in a few DRM events as well, but with only non-German drivers they did not gain any championship points. This would change in 1976 when foreigners like Hezemans and Schenken (and Wollek for Kremer) were allowed to have a German license.
