【 The 1948 Le Mans Winning Porsche 】 Since the team's founding in 1978, Joest Racing has achieved numerous successes in motorsport. The team was notable for campaigning Porsche race cars in the 1980s, among which was the Porsche 956 that was entered for the 1984 24 Hours of Le Mans. This No.7 car featured prominent New Man sponsor markings and a distinctive yellow, black, and white livery. The car went on to claim overall victory at Le Mans that year as well as in the subsequent year. This impressive race car has been reproduced as a 1/12 scale R/C model on the RM-01 chassis.
