HISTORY

The Porsche 956 n.34 is a prototype that participated in the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1984. In 1984 the official team of Stuttgart boycotted the participation in the 24 Hours of Le Mans due to the new regulation published by the Automobile Club of the West, which foresaw changes on fuel consumption. This allowed private teams to win the French classic. The car was entered by the Australian Team John Fritzpatrick Racing. The livery was red with sponsor Bob Jane T-Marts and fitted Dunlop tires.

Larry Perkins and Peter Brock at the wheel of the Porsche 956 n.34 took part in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1984 and were forced to retire due to an accident.
