Vic Elford, or ‘Quick Vic’ to his friends, was the most versatile racing driver of his day and a motorsport all-rounder. From the 1960s, Elford spent two decades taking podium positions all over the world. He competed in his first race in 1961 in a BMC mini and in his first rally in 1962 in a DKW. From 1968 to 1971, he took part in 13 Formula One Grand Prix. Elford was also a successful rally driver, especially as a factory driver for Porsche. From the Monte Carlo Rally to the 24 Hours of Daytona, the demanding Targa Florio in Sicily and the sports car races on the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife, Elford was usually too fast for his competitors. The 19th 12 Hours of Sebring took place on 20 March 1971 as the third event in the World Sportscar Championship that year. Porsche and Ferrari battled it out for victory. Following technical difficulties and accidents with the two fastest Ferraris, the race was won by the works Porsche 917K driven by Vic Elford and Gérard Larrousse (Team Martini & Rossi Racing). As in the previous two years, Porsche was again crowned 1971 World Sportscar Champion.
