Silenced System Manufacture

Silenced System Manufacture

Unsilenced exhaust system installed. No Cats or silencers but has 2 lambda sensors so we can optimise the engine map. Assuming I can find a track with no noise requirements, it should sound rather good. Click the image more info...

ICON-917-2We have had a well-connected marketing man Michael Hodges I meet on the STP stand at Autosport 2013, who has been following our project since then. And one of his connections was the editor of Octane James Elliott. After some discussion James agreed to writing an article about our 917 project. We needed to do some shake down runs and James recommended Bruntingthorpe aerodrome for the drive and photo shoot. Read More...

2019-London-Classic-Car-Show-36We displayed our Icon 917K at the 2017 LCCS as a fully assembled rolling chassis. Two years on and I received a call from the LCCS team asking if we wanted to display again. But as now our 917 was up and running reliably, my reply was “let me drive the car up and down the Grand Avenue”, to which they said OK. Read More...

John Hartland my partner in the 917 project received an interesting call on April 4th from the Goodwood Festival of Speed team. They had a problem........the Central Feature was to be a display of 6 Iconic Porsches for their 70th Anniversary.

And the problem, was that they could not source an original Porsche 917 for the display to display alongside the 5 original Porsches. Now 18 months ago when we displayed at the London Classic Car Show, unknown to John and I, our project was viewed by one of the Duke of Richmond's top advisors. And the message taken back to the Festival and Porsche teams was that our Icon 917 was the most authentic replica / re-creation under development.

So when faced with all the original 917’s either being raced at the Le Mans Classic, or to be available to go up the hill, they approach John and I to ask if we could kindly loan my prototype to go some 35m up in the sky on the Central Feature! Read More...
