• Drivers: Jo Siffert, Dieter Spoerry, Rico Steinemann & Charles Voegele
• Main sponsor: BP (British Petroleum)
• Real chassis number: 906-153

The world record attempt was not financed by Porsche, as many had assumed, but by BP Switzerland. That is why Rico Steinemann and Dieter Spoerry donated their “private” car.
