  1. How about the Peugeot 205? hill climbs, rallies, group b, junior cups etc etc
     
  2. The Porsche 935 'Baby' won every race it ever entered... all 2 of them. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  3. Really? Didn't know that. What happened for it to race only twice? Same as BT46B?
     
  4.  
  5. Audi Quattro!
     
  6. Yeah the E30!
    And the most succesfull in my mind....The Audi Quattro!
     
  7. I'm with the Bugatti T35 on this one...
     
  8. I don't understand how there's ANY debate about this... The Porsche 911 IS the most successful race car ever. End Thread...
     
  9. This is true. In various incarnations the 911 has won more races than anything else, and it continues to add to the tally every day.

    Also, on the Bugatti thing, how stiff was the competition in those 1500 races? Probably not of the same caliber as the bugatti.
     
  10. The C5/6-R has been so successful that it has killed off the GT1 class in the ALMS.
     
  11. the 1968? Owens Fiberglass Corvette L88 (white and red) won 22 victories in a row...
     
  12. Ermmm, turns out it only won one of its two races... Jackie Ickxx nearly passed-out from heat exhaution in its debut at the Norisring & had to retire it early.

    It won the next race at Hockenheim by almost a minute over 2nd place (which is like, eternity). They banned all turbo motors in the class after that.
     
  13. My mechanic's father was the co-owner and co-driver of that car. He also landed the Owens-Corning sponsorship.
     
  14. sweet.
