1975 Porsche 911 RSR

Another of Brumos Porsche’s historic cars that was on display in the Heritage Exhibition at the 2009 Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona.

This car WON the 1977 Rolex 24  overall, driven by Hurley Haywood, Dave Helmick and John Graves.

Hurley was not confident in the new turbo cars so he accepted the invitation of car owner Dave Helmick to drive the 2 year old RSR.  Pretty good decision!

For more on the history of this car read Hail to the Snail from the Florida Times Union.
