Inside Rothmans Porsche – Helmut Flegl And Al Holbert Review Data – Le Mans 1985
The 85th 24 hours of Le Mans is in the record books with Porsche scoring their 19th overall victory. During practice in 1985 I had the ride of a lifetime around the Circuit de La Sarthe in a Porsche 956 driven by Derek Bell: https://poeticsofspeed.com/category/215mph/
Through out the race I was able to photograph the Rothmans Porsche drivers and engineers in their pit as they worked on strategy. Helmut Flegl (seated), who later was Porsche’s chief engineer on Porsche’s 917 Can-Am race car, discusses data with American Driver Al Holbert as other crew members look on.
