In 1970 Jo Siffert and Brian Redman completed the incredible consecutive ‘’5 winning’’ at Targa Florio. That year Leo Kinnunen established the record of speed in a single lap at 128,571 Km/h with a Porsche 908. Many commented: "It looked like being in a F1 track and not at the Madonie.”The longest driving time was 3h 30’ before the changing of the driver.The battle for victory was between Alfa Romeo Martini and Porsche Gulf teams as Ferrari did not participate to the race this year: ’’Drake’’ did not appreciate the changing of rules for engine power. Porsche 908 weight was just 540 Kg and engine power was an incredible 350 hp. The chassis was very short and compact and had an easy body design. Curious was the crick system which allowed to lift the car for a rapid tyre change.
The engine block and relative parts (fan, air intakes etc..) were built in brass.The car frame was entirely built in brass with soldered micro-tubes.The front chassis and the dashboard were created with soldered brass tubes, while the instrument panel was made in turned aluminum.
