Less than a fortnight after the dust of the Spa Classic settled, Peter Auto will now stage the Grand Prix de l'Age d'Or at Dijon this weekend. Under absolutely scorching conditions a wide variety of machinery will take to the undulating track. Among them are a pair of lovely machines we have also seen in action at Spa and previous events.
The youngest of these is the Porsche 934, which was built exclusively in 1976 for the Group 4 class. Based on the 911 Turbo or 930 road car, it was the first turbocharged competition car offered by Porsche to customers. It was so quick that IMSA decided to ban the car. It did race in and win the European GT Championship and the TransAm series in North America. Today, the 934 is a rare sight as many were raced for several seasons and continuously updated and modified. Our all-new article features a detailed look at this impressive machine, illustrated by a 50-shot gallery, picturing five different examples.
Winning an altogether different European Championship just a few years earlier was the Lola T212, which was driven to the Two-litre Sports Car championship by Dr. Helmut Marko. A development from the sophisticated T210 introduced a year earlier, the T212 was a winner straight out of the box. Raced by many of the great drivers of the period, the diminutive machine was hugely successful on both sides of the Atlantic. We have today added a 97-shot gallery with five different examples, two of which will be here at Dijon over the weekend.
A full report of the Grand Prix de l'Age d'Or and the Modena Trackdays, which we also attended this week, will follow after the weekend, if we have not melted away ...
