Sebring12h_1971

Porsche’s 12 Hours of Sebring USA 1971 victory poster was created by Erich Strenger (1922-1993), like many other Porsche victory posters. Strenger possibly worked on it during and right after the race to be ready right after the event.
The 1971 12 Hours of Sebring poster features a photoghraphy of the Porsche-Martini 917K driven by Vic Elford (GB) and Gerard Larrousse (F) in black & white, on top of a huge and dynamic american flag graphics in blue and red that blends nicely into the number 12 of the title and picks up the red color of the Porsche lettering.
