    GT3 class? I think the GT2 class went away with the Viper vs Vette.

    Damn. I've never seen those cars before. They look awesome.

    Apparently the Warsteiner team was intending to race at Le Mans 1976 but was horribly unprepared. The cars never qualified, and they showed up with no sponsors.





    Mister SCHULTHESS, then official TOJ dealer in 1976, speak about the 24h of Le Mans 1976 story:
    "We ordered a 2 liter car and a 3 liter car in order to participate in the 24 hours of mans 1976. Unfortunately, the 2 cars had been delivered late and we went to perform the tests with the engines just installed in the chassis (2L ROC engine for the SC204 and 3L DFV engine for the SC301).
    We didn’t success to run the 3 Liter model with too many leaks, when the model 2 Liters made only a few lap and did not qualify the TOJ #SL 13/76 despite the car was received by the technical scrutineering."
    Corinne Koppenhague, then a driver on the SL13 / 76 chassis, also tells her version of the 1976 Le Mans 24 Hours :
    "The team was not ready, there were a lot of mechanical issues on the car, including gearbox with too shorts ratios for the Hunaudičres"
    In addition to all these mechanical issues, other mishaps took place. Indeed, the car arrived without lights (they will be fixed on the front for checks and in the hood for testing), the sponsor contract with the breweries Warsteiner was not finalized. This is also the reason why the two cars arrived “white” and not in the golden livery they adopted soon after.
