Moss and Siffert, 917, 1969, Michigan, To win Can Am. I admit to only knowing questions 2 and 5. Had to research the others.

Oh, oh... Now I gotta look stuff up (NOT). ;-) People, yes. Car, yes. Except would add that it's a Spyder--Siffert pestered Porsche to build a car for him to run in Can-Am. Don't think he really expected to win, but to put some money in his pocket (Can-Am paid a LOT more than Europe then). But of course the seed was planted and when the 917 became "illegal" in Europe for 1972, Porsche turbocharged it and won bigtime. Not sure about the location. Looks like Riverside (CA) to me...

Thanks for playing, Chris!
