The Targa Florio is one of the oldest, most dangerous, sinewy racing circuits in the world. It has more than 1000 bends, in other words a turn every 90 metres. In 1973, Martini Racing placed their 911 RSR on the track, shedding as much weight from it as they could using fibreglass. The competition-grade pneumatics and its 2.7 litre engine pushed to 210 horsepower made mincemeat of the daunting course. The number 8 team – Muller and Van Lennep – came out on top after a tough fight, running 11 laps, a total of 792 km, with an impressive average of 114 km/h.
