The #1 Gulf Porsche 917 of Jo Siffert and Derek Bell coming into the old turn three at the 1971 24 Hours of Daytona. Jo Siffert was the number one driver for Porsche and more than any other driver helped in the early stages of the 917’s development. He was tragically killed just weeks after this picture was taken in a Formula one accident while driving for BRM. More than 50,000 showed up for his funeral in Switzerland and a Gulf Porsche 917 with John Wyer led the procession.
