VIC ELFORD R.I.P.

One of the greatest Porsche drivers in history passed away today.

He was also one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. He always took my questions without complaint, and was as humble as humanely possible considering all his accomplishments in motor racing.

Fans will always remember Vic’s rally victories at Monte Carlo in a 911 and his brave win in a Porsche 907 at the Targa Florio in 1968, where he came from far behind in the last laps to pass the lead Ferrari.

Above is a portrait I made of Vic at a Rennsport Reunion. Rest in peace my friend.
