The 907 cars were fitted with a 2195cc eight-cylinder air-cooled engines which developed 270bhp and it was reported along with drivers fitted with cooling vests to withstand the heat in the closed cockpits. Shorty after a 907 went on to win the 12 Hours at Sebring in short-tailed form with another eight-cylinder engine. But, this story is not about 1968. It's about the 2013 Daytona 24.
Automotive racing photographer, Jackie Buys, was covering this years Daytona event and came away with some totally awesome shots. Jackie let "Along For The Ride" use her shots of last years "Petit" at Atlanta and she has also let us take a look at what she captured at the 24 hrs.
