Hello!

I’d like to know something about the World Record of Porsche 906 in Monza 1967. (See photo.)
Please help me to find any information about this car and its triumph in Monza 1967? What World Record was there in Monza 1967?

Thank.

Hi Aleksei,

Sorry to having you let out in the cold after your first post. I have been checking the excellent work by Karl Ludvigsen on Porsche: "Excellence was expected". The record attempts by the 911R are duely reported, while no mention at all is made by the records for the 906. Charles Vogele is also only mentioned in the context of the 1967 ride with the 911 and no reference is made to the 906.

Actually the 906E was recognisable from its slightly longer nose, and not with a longer tail as you describe, but there have been many variants of bodies for all sorts of Porsche types.

The 906 has been recently added to the main page of UCP as you may have noticed. In case you have more info on the record car that would be very welcome.

Hi, henk4!

I have all the photos from this gallery. I can place them here. Is it necessary (may be in private message to you)? They are 44 in total, with resolution 574x376x24b.

Hi Aleksei, thanks for the offer, no need to send these pics to me, but of course you can place (some of) them here, of course with properly crediting the source.
