How the RS Spyder conquered Sebring

Who isn’t a sucker for an underdog? Nothing beats the thrill of watching a David throw punches at a Goliath, especially when he lands a few or even wins the fight. The McLaren F1 at Le Mans in 1995, Alonso and Alpine holding back Hamilton and Mercedes in Hungary in 2021, Penske and Porsche LMP2 showing Audi’s all-conquering LMP1 R8s a clean pair of heels at the Sebring 12 hours in 2008 to take the overall win. That winning Porsche RS Spyder Evo, driven in period by Romain Dumas, Timo Bernhard and Emmanuel Collard, was here with us at the 2021 Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard on a roster of cars representing the proudest moments of Penske’s decades-long motorsport enterprise.
