The Porsche 911 T/R raced by Alan Hamilton in 1968-69 is arguably the most significant 911 to have competed in Australian motor sport.

It was not only the first of its type to race in the Australian Touring Car Championship but it also came within one point of winning the title outright in 1969, which would have been the biggest upset in ATCC history. It was a very special car, as you’ll soon discover.
