Pilotes : A. Holbert et C. Robinson
Porsche 962 is a sport-prototype racing car created to replace the already succesfull Porsche 956, in order to allow its presence in the IMSA and WSC Group C competitions.
It was one of the most succesfull racing cars ever and it won several competitions all over the world :
The IMSA ‘GTP’ regulations required some modification in comparison with Porsches designed for the Group C. Front axle was shifted 12 centimeters ahead, so that driver’s feet could stay behind the wheels hubs. The boxer 6 cylinders engine had a displacement of 3.2 liters, was air-cooled, with only one turbo, 2 valves per cylinder, one single overhead camshaft.
Chip Robinson and Al Holbert finished second at the 1987 Sebring 12 Hours. Holbert, excellent driver but also engineer, was the director of Porsche Motorsports North America. When he was killed in a plane crash, IMSA retired the use of ‘14’, because it was the race number Al had became identified with.
