Rennsport and Endurance Driving

"Speed is just one of the essential qualities of a racing car.  Reliability and stamina are the others." - Racing: The Ultimate Proof (Porsche factory booklet).
Reliable in extreme weather and road conditions, the 912 naturally excelled in professional rally racing.  In 1967 the 912 took its place in Porsche rennsport history, when independent driver Sobieslaw Zasada of Poland drove his factory-loaned 912 to capture the European Rally Championship for series Touring Cars (noted in the center of the Porsche Racing Season 1967 poster shown at right).

Today, 912 and 912E competition cars appear in vintage races, autocross, rally events, and hillclimbs.  As a vintage rally car, on January 29, 2012 Hayden Burvill, Alastair Caldwell, and their #35 1968 Porsche 912 finished first in class, and 7th overall in the 2012 London to Cape Town World Cup Rally; a 14 country, three continent, 14,000 kilometre, 26 driving-days event.  And in a non-racing charity fundraising drive, Max Levell completed an eighteen-country 2010 endurance drive from London to Saigon in a 1966 912.
