Targa Florio legend in Gröbming: Strietzel Stuck drives Porsche 908/3

Exactly this Porsche 908/3 was the car with wich Kinnunen/Rodriguez came in second at the Targa Florio in 1970 behind their team colleagues Siffert/Redman.

The Finn Leo Kinnunen displaced the stronger Ferrari 512S driven by Giznti in the last lap from the second place with a record time of 33.36 minutes.

Porsche had built the 908/3 specifically for the Targa Florio and tested it until there were hardly any weak points left. The car was based on the 909 mountain Spyder from 1968.

Four chassis were built up for the Targa Florio, three were given to the John Wyer Team for Siffert/Redman, Kinnunen/Rodriguez and Attwood/Waldegard (5th). The fourth car was handed over to Porsche Salzburg for Vic Elford/Hans Herrmann but the team did not see th finish because they drove over a stone and had a severe crash.  

Strietzel Stuck will drive the 350 HP strong Targa legend that only weighs 545 kg at the Zenith GP in Gröbming. After a sitting test Stuck said: " I am looking forward to it because I have never driven a 908/3!"
