Le Mans winning Porsche 936 returns to racing at Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit

Following its victory at Le Mans in 1981, this winning Porsche 936 was returned to the Porsche Museum to join the storied ranks of Porsche Le Mans victors on display. As part of the build-up, the car was given an extensive restoration at the Racing Department in Weissach and it returned to competition in March at the "2013 Phillip Island Classic". The following week, it raced again at the 2013 Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix. Alex Davison, one of Australia's most successful Carrera Cup drivers and current V8 Supercar pilot, took the car from last on the grid to 5th at Phillip Island and one week later, onto the podium at the Albert Park race.

Historic Motorsport Head Klaus Bischof recounts that after winning Le Mans in 1976 and 1977, the 936 was retired to the Porsche museum before it was brought back for the 1981 race. He talks about the path back to Le Mans and the return of the 936 to the track for the first time since 1981 and the future of Porsche at Le Mans with real passion.
