Christian and Sonia Zugel of Holmdel, New Jersey displayed this ’69 917 at this years Amelia Island Concours. The description read:

917 #021 started life with the AAW Team. It made it to Le Mans in 1970 with David Piper and Gijs van Lennep as drivers. The car DNF’d after two crashes because of rain and a punctured tire. The car was one of David Piper’s team cars where it ran many races with David, Chris Craft and Peter Norman. The car was purchased from the Rosso Bianco Museum and the restoration took place in 2009 by Gunnar Porsche Racing. It debuted with special guests David Piper and Gijs van Lennep at the 2009 Monterey Historic Races. The car won “Most Outstanding Performance 2009” in the post 1940 category after van Lennep put it on the pole and finished on the podium in the feature race.
