How Porsche indelibly links Kyalami and Le Mans

Many Porsche Racing at Kyalami book images could well be of the 24 Hour.

With the Le Mans 24 Hour top of mind and, based on its recent form, the possibility of Porsche taking its 20th victory this weekend, the new book, 60 Years of Porsche Racing at Kyalami will highlight the indelible link between the circuit’s 9 Hour race, and the Le Mans classic when released within the coming days.

While the cars have indeed won 19 Le Mans 24 Hours since 1970, Porsches have also won 15 Kyalami Endurance races over the years. Interestingly, many of the Porsches and their drivers that won the Le Mans 24 Hour, also won the Kyalami 9 Hour in the same years. Which forever links the two races, to allow similar memories to linger eternally for local race fans.

Porsche’s 9 Hour wins include the very first 1961 race, while a Porsche won as recently as the 2019 Kyalami 9 Hour. To celebrate, the book publishers are once again offering a very special once-off print of this image to one lucky visitor to the 60 Years of Porsche Racing at Kyalami website through Le Mans week 10-16 June 2024.

60 Years of Porsche Racing at Kyalami celebrates Porsche’s incredible success at Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit over the years. A Porsche 550 A Spyder won the circuit’s opening 9 Hour race in 1961. Its successors not only dominated that race ever since, but the Kyalami Porsche story spreads far further too.

60 Years of Porsche Racing covers all the Porsche cars, engines and drivers that raced throughout the Kyalami’s first, glorious 60 years. It, of course covers all the 9 Hour, 6 Hour, 500km endurance races as well as a detailed history on the 944 Turbo Cup Series. Many Porsche powered cars took victory at Kyalami, a chapter covers the victorious Formula 1 cars powered by Porsche, and so much more.

The high-quality 300-page large format hard cover 60 Years of Porsche Racing at Kyalami also includes more than 500 splendid images, most of which have never previously been published. Each photograph also has its own detailed caption in both English and German.
