This poster was created by Porsche to celebrate their top two winning spots of the entire 1972 Interserie racing season. The first place winner for the season was Finnish Porsche driver Leo "Leksa" Kinnunen, who won racing a Porsche 917-10 Turbo vehicle. Kinnunen (1943 - 2017) was international racing's first driver from Finland, and he had a long record-breaking career in both Interserie and Formula One racing.
The photo used in this poster was taken by Ranier Schlegelmilch (1941 - ), one of the most famous photographers on the Formula One circuit. German born, Schlegelmilch has been regularly photographic car racing since 1962.
Ferdinand Porsche began his famed automotive business in Germany in 1931, and it originally started as a parts manufacturer that supplied Volkswagen. During WWII, Porsche created military tanks and supplies. It was not until 1948 that Porsche produced its first sportscar. Ever since, Porsche has been known on the racing circuit as well as a high performance sports and luxury car for the consumer markets.
