RACE: 1990 1st Brands Hatch DRIVER: Walter Lechner
The Porsche 962 was a sport-prototype racing car, designed to replace the Porsche 956, to race the WSC Group C and Americans IMSA competitions. The main difference from the 956 model was the chassis, modified according to changed FIA safety rules.
This Group C racer from Porsche was one of the most successful racing cars ever, its palmares including:
- World Sport-Prototype Championship: 1985, 1986,
- Le Mans 24h: 1986, 1987, 1994
- IMSA GTP Championship: 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988
- Daytona 24h: 1985, 1986, 1987, 1989, 1991
- Sebring 12h: 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988
Two were the versions of this car: “962” for IMSA Championships, “962C” for Group C races. In 1990, the Team’s principal and driver, Walter Lechner, entered the Interserie Coupe Super Sports with a Porsche 962C KH sponsored by Walter Lechner Racing School and Jim Beam. Lechner won the fourth race of the Championship, held on the historic Brands Hatch circuit.
