The 1975 Sebring 12 Hours were always meant to be a battle between the two works BMW’s 3.0 CSL entered by BMW Motorsport and a series of well driven private Porsches Carrera RSR.

When the lead BMW #24 (picture above) of Hans Stuck and Sam Posey had to retire after 102 laps with a broken oil pipe, the two drivers were asked to join the #25 car of Brian Redman and Alan Moffat and try to resist to the assault of the Porsches, all through the night.

Mission accomplished: Redman/Moffat/Stuck/Posey brought the pretty and fast BMW 3.0 CSL  called ‘Batmobile’ home with 3 laps advantage on the four chasing Porsches Carrera RSR.
