Picture above: An elegant orange Porsche 917K entered by the Team Gunston for Dick Attwood (who will a few months later, win the 1970 Le Mans 24 Hours) and local star John Love, seen here at speed during the 1970 9 Hours of Kyalami.

The race was won by the works Ferrari 512M of Jacky Ickx and Ignazio Giunti, who narrowly edged the Siffert – Ahrens Martini-Porsche 917K (photo here-under). No luck for local favorite John Love, who had to retire with brake problems.
