HISTORY

Porsche 962 is a sport-prototype racing car created to replace the already successful Porsche 956, in order to allow its presence in the Americans IMSA and WSC Group C competitions.It was one of the most successful racing cars ever and it won several competitions all over the world:

- World Sport Prototype Championship in 1985 and 1986
- 24h Le Mans in 1986, 1987 and 1994
- IMSA GTP Championship in 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1988
- 24h Daytona in 1985, 1986, 1987, 1989 and 1991
- 12h Sebring in 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1988

There were two versions of this car: "962" for the IMSA Championship, "962C" for the Group C racings.

Compared to P956, the chassis had been modified according to changed FIA safety rules.
At 1986 Spa 1000 Kilometres, Brun Motorsport engaged a Porsche962C with number 17.The engine, usually a turbocharged Flat 6, was the Type 935/79, with 2826 cc displacement.
That race had the most exciting finish of the Group C era: the number 17 Porsche, started from pole position, finished first by only eight tenths of second.
In 1986 Walter Brun's crew won the Teams' World Sports-Prototype Championship.
