NEWS: Sideways Porsche 935/78 'Moby Dick'

Sideways Porsche 935/78 "Moby Dick"
SW20, Martini Racing, Silverstone 1978 winner

Sideways have released the stunning 'Martini Racing' Porsche 935/78 livery.  The number 1 car won the 6hr endurance race at Silverstone in 1978.  Driven by Jackie Ickx and Jochen Mass, the car was almost 2 seconds a lap faster in qualifying than it's nearest rival, the team managed to finish the race with an overall lead of 7 laps!    If you don't already have a Sideways Porsche 935/78 in your line-up then you owe it to yourself to grab one of these beautiful slot cars and a 1/32 scale piece of Motorsport history.

From Wikipedia: 'Because of its white color and long tail shape optimised for low drag, the 935/78 was often nicknamed Moby-Dick.'

I've previously posted this onboard footage of the 935/78 "Moby Dick", but for those that haven't seen it previously...
