“Targa Florio 1968 Victory”
Vic Elford racing the Porsche 907
to Victory at the Targa Florio 1968
- After losing 18 minutes with wheel and tire problems on the first lap Vic started the second lap 18 minutes behind the leader.
- He drove 7 of the 10 laps of the 72 km Circuit, pushing his Porsche 907 to the limit and breaking the lap record several times
- on the way to an amazing and historic come-from-behind victory!
Written on the print is a statement Vic wrote in his 1st. book (in French)
“Jamais je n’ai mérité une victoire comme j’ai mérité celle-là”
“I never deserved a victory as I deserved this one”
That was so true that for the first time in history Porsche decided that the Victory poster would not show the car
but only Vic as they knew that the car didn’t win the race: Vic did!
This beautiful print was design for the 5oth anniversary of that spectacular race.
Autographed by Vic Elford and outstanding racing shoes maker Ciccio de Cefalù
