908/3 at the 1970 Targa Florio

This was the year of The Flying Finn’s 33 minute 36 second lap. There’s something equally magical and heartbreaking about a record that cannot be broken—Leo Kinnunen’s 79.89 mph average lap of the Targa will never be beaten.

    Been following this blog for months and just have to say IT KICKS TOTAL ASS. Really nice work curating some incredible stuff. Seeing the 908 in Gulf livery made my day, which says a lot about where my bar sits.

    Did you know bikes ran in the Targa Florio pre-war?
