Hallo Jörg!
Herzlich Wilkommen ...

ich habe ein oder zwei fotos von dem wagen in schwarz/weiß, aber ich vermute mal daß du die schon hast. ich bin zur zeit unterwegs (WCC '05, Southern California ) und habe keinen zugang zu meinem computer.

ich werde mal mein bilder-archiv durchwühlen, sobald ich nach hause komme ...
gruß, Andy

Are you sure that is real? I have never seen that before.

I could see a 914 as a pace car for the 24 hours in '71 but, the 500 is odd.

I don't think it would go fast enough to stick to the banking. (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/sad.gif)

Can't top Andy's "Hallo Jörg! Herzlich Wilkommen ....."

But, it is good to have a another son of the father land.
Enjoy our crazy group of lovers of the 914.

Sure wish I paid more attention in the German class I took in high school.

I think he said he has a black and white photo of the car back on his computer but he's at WCC.

Doug... you need one of these in your Pace Car collection. (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/wink.gif)

I took this picture in 1975 or 1976 at a IMSA Camel GT race at Pocono Speedway in Pennsylvania.

I stand corrected.

But I still think they were having a tough time staying up on the banking with two guys in a 1.7.

Not a problem staying on the banking....have done several laps of California Speedway with the teener and it sticks up high and dives in really

NICE

Paul,

The 1971 914 Daytona 500 Pace Car is a 914-6. The wheels on that car are the standard 5 lug steel wheel with hub caps. You can tell by the amount of holes in the wheel. The 4 lug wheels only had 8 holes and the 5 lug wheels has 10 holes.

They are hub caps. They were quite common in the early 70's.

Daytona banking is 31 degrees. It's like a wall when you stand at the bottom of it.

Also, those Daytona pace cars pictured above are not the same. One is painted for the 500 and the other is for the ARCA(?) 300.

Most of us are aware of that car. I seem to remember the asking price was $45,000.

Okay, so Jorg owns the Official Daytona 914 Pacecar. I wonder how much it's worth? (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/laugh.gif)

WOT: The Alpenrose Velodrome in Portland has 43 degree banks. Riding on them is trippy! No stopping, at a bit below 10 mph you will slide off!

Would they let you have an autocross there?

Can't hurt to ask. (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/confused24.gif)
