The Porsche 956 and the derivative 962 version dominated long-distance sports car racing on both sides of the Atlantic during the 1980s, both in European Group C racing and the American IMSA series. The car’s numerous successes included six consecutive victories in the Le Mans 24 Hours and four consecutive victories in the Daytona 24 Hours. This is a big book about a big subject, as these awesome machines raced competitively for 12 years and almost 150 of them were manufactured for use by factory and customer teams.
