It was nearly a flawless race for the Akin Racing Porsche 962 during the 1986 12 hours of Sebring. Leading by several laps as dusk approached, Hans Stuck came suddenly into the pits claiming he had a flat front tire. The tire wasn't flat, it was completely gone. Unfortunately the tire bounded into pit lane and struck a mechanic, seriously injuring him. A new tire was put on and the car resumed the race to win by 8 laps. Jo Gartner drove the last stint and after he took the checkered flag the wheel came off AGAIN, forcing Gartner to drive into victory lane on three wheels.

Designed for the Hasegawa Revell kit in conjuction with the conversion kit from Classic Racing Resins. These decals accurately depict the winning car from the 1986 12 hours of Sebring. Many replicas of this car got the main sponsor logo wrong - in 1986 they were sporting a 'new' product and along with that came a new logo. We got the logo right!
