For me as a spotty sixteen year old, the 917 emerging in 1969 was like seeing a UFO.
The shape is astonishing, and when you see the tubed frame, the braveness of the likes of Siffert and Rodriguez and the other 917 tamers is beyond belief.
They were my heroes, way beyond the drivers we see today in their safety cells.
Yeah times have changed.
