I've been uploading tons of old pictures to Flickr and when I stumbled on a shot of the Lowenbrau Porsche 962 I had to post my love for this car. During the glory years of IMSA in the mid 80's The Porsche 962 dominated the racing circuits. For whatever reason, I always loved the livery of this paticular car. Be it my German blood or the fact that it just looked cool, this was my favorite. If memory serves me, the 1986 12 Hours of Sebring race featured a classic showdown of the 962. The late Al Hobert and Derek Bell were the pilots of the Lowenbrau and had lead the entire race. Down to the last hour, the Lowenbrau had to make an unexpected pit stop to cure a mechanical problem. The time in the pits allowed that pesky 962 of AJ Foyt to sneak past for a dramatic win in the last few minutes of the race. Needless to say this only made the Lowenbrau car more famous and it continued to place well in the remaining races of the season. I'll have to check my facts but I believe it won Le Mans later in the year. Correct me if I'm wrong race fans.
