Here at PH Towers we're not 100% sure if this is the 'actual' Porsche 908 that British racing legend Brian Redman triumphed with at the 1970 Targa Florio, so if anybody out there does know either way - be a sport and share.

Until somebody steps up with the info, all we can tell you is that this is definitely a Porsche 908 of some important provenance, sporting glorious Gulf racing colours. Oh, and that 74 year old Mr Redman is definitely the legend at the wheel.

The picture was taken at the Rennsport Reunion at Laguna Seca last weekend, and even if we knew less about it than we do, we'd still know fantastic desktop fodder when we saw it!

Meanwhile, we look forward to our PH-style history lesson in the thread below, and here's a bit of extra video action on the side...

    Too much talking in the vid and not enough of the cars... plus it smelt a bit of a 991 advert also by the end.

    I was at this event and I can say for sure that you had better start preparing to go to the next one there in 2014.

    Driver looks like Dr. Edgemar (Roy Brocksmith) from Total Recall - The Doctor supposedly implanted holographic projection to pursuade him to swallow a pill as a symbol of his willingness to leave his dream.

    I think however that the livery is is not accurate. I havent seen any photos of this particular interpretation of the nose of the car.
