About the 917K [1971]
The 917 first debuted in the 1969 prototype car race season. In the following year the aerodynamics was further improved by John Wyer Automotive Engineering Ltd., giving birth to the short tail 917K. Upon its debut the 917k overwhelmed the competition with its power and speed, and managed to win various endurance races, the international constructors’ championship, and the 24-hour endurance race in Circuit de la Sarthe for the 1970 race season.
With the 917K’s overwhelming success the machine was further refined in preparation for the next season: vertical fins installed at the rear cowl, induction pots were placed on the engine cover, and various other modifications on the outlook were attempted by different teams. Continuing the previous year’s success, the 917K claimed victory at Le Mans once again, and dominated the competition in the 1971 season.
