Rothmans Porsche 956
Le Mans 24 hours 1983
Hurley Haywood / Al Holbert / Vern Schuppan won the race.
Jacky Ickx / Derek Bell finished second.
Signed by Derek Bell & Hurley Haywood.
The win was fought right down to the line between the Rothmans Porsche 956s of Al Holbert (#3 car) and Derek Bell (#1). Bell was able to un-lap himself as the Holbert car was slowed by overheating (engine damage caused by an airflow blockage to the radiator that cooled the heads)and finally seized up on the last lap; luckily for Holbert it re-fired and made it to the end with smoke trailing from the exhaust. Holbert crossed the finish line 17 seconds ahead of a fast closing Bell.
