Homebrew 917 goes public at Race Retro.

Wow Race Retro, where to start: Well let’s start with the 3 weeks before; which I have to say were very hectic. So what did we manage to do in the 3 weeks before, well see the list below:

 1 Complete the initial designs for the 964 engine and inverted G50 gearbox mounting cross members and the mounting brackets for these to the chassis, completed in Catia. And then have a set laser cut.
 2 Then have both the engine and gearbox mounts these tacked together. And have the chassis mounts tacked to the chassis, in preparation for the first engine fitting the week before Race Retro.

homebrew917-pistonheadsPHer buys 917 bodyshell, cracks on with building the rest himself

'Hi Mr Editor' began an email arriving in the PH inbox this morning. "You may recall back in early August 2011 a rather negative article on your website about a 917 bodyshell for sale."

Uh-oh, who have we upset now...

Reading on it turns out not to be an angry email but in fact a fascinating one. You can read that original story here but the basics were that a fibreglass Porsche 917 bodyshell from a mould taken from David Piper's (yes, him) original car was up for sale. And we suggested that the best use for it might be to turn it upside down and use it as a canoe. Ahem.
