  • Lowenbrau Sebring 1987

    Hi.
    We are planning the release, in 2013, of a second decoration of the Porsche 962 IMSA. We have chosen, given the type of rear deck used, the car which did 2nd in Sebring in 1987

    http://www.racingsportscars.com/phot...987-03-21.html

    Driver's helmet: Al Holbert.
    Comments welcome. Feel free to send your input regarding other possible decorations for the future; consider that we are currently limited to the rear deck with the 'big mouth', and no front wing.

    Miller, and Bayside Disposal 'Bud' come to mind... but you probably know more.

    The IMSA 962 will be very popular

    The BF Goodrich 67 and A.J. Foyts Columbia Crest 8 quickly come to mind but there must be many more. And I can see Europeans liking an Oscar Laurari TORNO car as well. Porsche dealers offered a poster of 50 winning 962s. This may help in research. I'll see if I can locate one for you. And i may have saved some IMSA yearbooks from the era. Certainly BRM has released the Coke and others but we all know Slot.it does its research.

      The IMSA 962 Lowenbrau is a great choice for your 1st livery, especially when it's in Al Holbert's hands.

      (Oops.....2nd IMSA livery, see below)

        The Coke livery is the first I believe

          I like the choice of Al Holbert's Lowenbrau 962 to model in 1/32 also.

          There is a great illustrated book titled "Prototypes: The History of the IMSA GTP Series" that probably would be a great deal of help to the Slot.It employees working on this project.

            The Budweiser car would be great too as it was the Sebring winner that year. This new mold opens up a lot of great possibilities, like doing the Daytona 24 Hr. winners.

              When you decide to make the early 962 bodywork.

                      Never hurts to ask your buyers what they'd like! And even though I have my own Lowenbrau car, you know I'll but the slot.it version!
