Racer seeks redemption in the Porsche that failed him

One of champion driver Walter Röhrl's biggest regrets was the 1981 San Remo Rally, which featured him in a rear-wheel-drive 911 SC facing off against the advanced all-wheel-drive Audis. A broken axle on the last stage took him out of the race. Now, 30 years later, he's got a chance to win in the same car.

Found sitting in someone's garage, that 911's been restored for this year's Targa Tasmania with Röhrl at the helm and his co-driver Christian Geistdoerfer back in the navigator's seat. The two-time WRC Champ wants to win the classic series. We'd just be happy to stare at it a little longer.
