Carel Godin de Beaufort


Porsche 550 Spyder

No: 29


R: 14

C: S

For a long time Carel and his co-driver Sepp Liebl did very well and ran as third Porsche, behind the factory cars, but after the accelerator cable snapped they lost a lot of time to eventually finish 14th overall. Alas there was no separate class for cars up to 1500cc so they were entered in the same sportscar class as eventual winners Brooks and Cunningham in an Aston Martin DBR1.
