1983 Porsche 956 Gr. C Accelerations Sound

From 19Bozzy92’s YouTube channel.  This is video of the 1983 New Man Joest Racing Porsche 956, a car that was driven by the late, great Formula 1 World Champion Ayrton Senna, in 1984, a decade before he lost his life at the peak of his career in the Formula 1 San Marino Grand Prix at Imola, Italy, in 1994.  Here is 19Bozzy92’s description of the car, and the equipment he used, to film it.

I saw this Porsche 965 group C car in action on track during the 2014 Ayrton Senna Tribute at Imola racetrack. The car (chassis #104) was built in 1983 and bought by Joest Racing which used the car in many races between 1983 and 1986. In 1984 the 956-104 took part in the 1000km of Nurburgring Nordschelife with Ayrton Senna, Henri Pescarolo and Stefan Johansson. The Porsche 956 is moved by a 2.65L turbocharged Flat-6 engine which is able to produce around 635 hp. Nowdays the car is owned by Alexander Seibold.
