Daytona 24 Hrs

Postby JBRedondo » Tue Jan 26, 2016 10:14 pm

Last week I realized that 2016 Daytona 24Hrs race will start in few days, so I did an inventory of my Daytona winners collection
and found that I'm still missing quite a few.
Here is what I have so far.
My first is 1965 Daytona 2000Km winner Ford GT40, Ken Miles/Lloyd Ruby (Spark)

Image
Image

next are 1967 Daytona 24Hrs 1,2,3 finishers Ferrari 330P4, Bandini/Amon; Ferrari 330P4, Parkes/ Scarfiotti; Ferrari 412, Rodriguez/ Guichet.
Models are MakeUp. You can tell, they are my favorite models by the number of pictures.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

1970 and 1971 Daytona 24Hrs was won by the same car/driver combo. Porsche 917, Pedro Rodriguez with Leo Kinunnen(1970) and Rodriguez/J. Oliver(1971)
Spark

Image
Image
Image

1972 Daytona was a 6hrs race. Winners- dream team Mario Andretti/Jacky Ickx, Ferrari 312PB (Redline)

Image
Image

1973 Daytona was back to 24hrs business. the race winners: Porsche 911 RSR, Gregg/Haywood (Spark)

Image
Image
Image

1975 Daytona 24hrs repeat win by Gregg/Haywood, Porsche 911 RSR (Spark)

Image
Image

BMW 3.0Csl, Gregg/Redman/Fitzpatrick won 1976 Daytona 24 (Minichamps)

Image
Image

1985 Daytona 24Hrs and the winners are Foyt/Wollek/Unser, Porsche 962 (Spark)

Image
Image

1986 and 1987 winners were Holbert/Bell/Unser (+ Chip Robinson at 1987), Porsche 962 (Spark)

Image
Image
Image

1988 year was won by a beautiful Jaguar XJR-9, Brundle/Boesel/Nielsen (Spark)

Image
Image

1989 Daytona Winners Wollek/Bell/Andretti(John) drove a very dramatic looking Porsche 962 (Spark)

Image
Image

1990 and another Jaguar. This time XJR-12, drivers Jones/Lammers/Wallace (Spark)

Image
Image

1992 Daytona 24Hrs, winners Nissan R91, drivers Hasemi/Suzuki/Hoshino (Ebbro ?)

Image
Image

Finally, something from another era. 2003 winners Bernhard/Bergmeister/Buckler/Schrom, Porsche GT3-RS

Image
Image

And that's all. Now I need a rest.

Nice collection of Daytona winners. Makeup Ferraris are gorgeous.

Only 1992 Daytona models that show up on Yahoo! Japan auctions are, indeed, Ebbro models. Ebbro 43529: http://www.ebbro.jp/SHOP/43529.html

That is a cracking collection - Make Up Ferrari's are brilliant, but no bad model there at all - very varied and great liveries. Just one question - purely based on the picture showing uncovered rear wheels and the model having covered rear wheels, is the 1988 Jag definitely a Daytona variant?

Jerry,
Awesome representative sampling of Daytona winners. Fun to see and great photos. Thanks.
Now I just have to find out if our TV supports the channels this weekend.
Cheers and Happy Collecting,
Steve

Fantastic collection. The Daytona 24 Hours is always a good source of different race cars and winners and this year a chance to see some of the new GTE cars for the first time.

Unfortunately we don't get the race on TV anymore. So I will have to check the relevant websites.

thanks and thanks for the Ebbro verification. I have to admit, I was just to lazy to walk upstairs to check on it. :roll:

Thanks! I checked some other pictures of the 1988 Jag and it looks like the car was raced with and also without the covers at different stages of the race.

Thanks Julio! I hope now when you looked at 1970 and 1971 pictures of Porsche 917/Pedro Rodriguez it is easier for you to decide, which you like better. You can get the clean 1971 version, or pay a little extra for the damaged one. :lol:

Thanks.Too bad you can't watch the race.I'm definitely not a fan of those ugly ( my opinion) Daytona prototypes, but the race itself gets very interesting time to time.

Hello there!

IMSA.com is suppose to be streaming this entire race, supposedly non region locked from now on. So hopefully everyone can watch the entire race, I'm going to check IMSA.com tomorrow for the Continental Sports Car Challenge at Daytona and see if it has a working stream.

Great thread. I have a few Daytona cars but don't want to clutter up your thread, plus my photography skills are not great!
Please check out my collection of mostly vintage but also modern race cars and street cars.

Thanks for the information, that's great. By the way, please post your photos, specially the ones I don't have. This is about the models, not quality of photography.

Ok keeping myself busy during all the cautions; here is the 2nd place Daytona 1972 312 by Redline, unfortunately It has a big scratch on the back you can only see at a specific viewing angle, wonder if it can be gotten rid of? I'm also going to post my 917 so I'm not really posting anything new!

Really good photos particularly the Ferraris from the famous three car finish.
I'm currently finishing a half built starter model of the #26 car that I bought so this reference is really useful.

Guess I've been away too long as I missed this thread entirely.
I have many of the same Daytona winning cars in my collection including the unsurpassable MAKE UP Ferrari 330 P4s.
Well done mate, a nice collection.

I missed this too first time around. The Daytona winners make an interesting alternative to the more common Le Mans winners and have a nice diversity while still capturing most of the significant race cars of the last 50 years.

I have all 1965-2005 Le Mans winners already, so I'm trying to focus on Daytona and possibly the Sebring winners. Thanks for your comment.

Here is a 1980 (very strong) winner Joest Porsche 935 with all German driver team Stommelen/Joest/Merl.
This is a great Spark model in my opinion.
