Autodromo Brian Redman Edition

3:30:00 PM







Brian Redman’s remarkable racing career encompassed one of the most exciting and dangerous
eras in motorsport. From the mid 1960s through the late 1970s, Redman drove to victory in many of
the greatest cars of the period, from the Ford GT40 to the Porsche 908 and 917, as well as the Ferrari
312 PB, Alfa Tipo 33 and BMW CSL. His popularity and skill as a driver is one of the few things
Porsche fans and Ferrari fans can agree on, and his roster of team mates reads like a who’s who of
the Prototype Era. In addition to his illustrious career in endurance racing, Brian was also Formula
5000 champion 3 times in a row from 1974-1976. A living legend, Brian continues to be involved
directly with vintage racing, and still can be seen behind the wheel of many of his former racing machines.

Autodromo is very proud to present this limited edition chronograph commemorating
Brian’s victory at the 1969 Nurburgring 1000km race with team mate Jo Siffert.
ABOUT THE 1969 NURBURGRING 1000km RACE
When a young Brian Redman joined the Porsche factory racing team, he had a choice between being
a Number 1 driver in his own car, or sharing his car as Number Two with Swiss driver Jo “Seppi”
Siffert. Brian chose to pair with Siffert even though it relegated him to Number 2 status, and together
the team mates won 5 out of 10 championship races in 1969, and went on to win 3 of 10 the
following year, including the Targa Florio.


At the Nurburgring 1000km race in 1969, Siffert had crashed the new Porsche 908 Flunder in practice,meaning that Redman and Siffert would run the race in a spare car entered by Porsche Salzburg. Emblazoned with the Red and White colors of Austria, the Porsche 908/02 was not the latest equipment, but Brian was still able to outrun Pedro Rodriguez in the Ferrari to clinch a victory
against the odds.



The Brian Redman Prototipo bears the same Red and White paint scheme as the Porsche Salzburg
908/02, with a green centerstop hand referencing the bright green accents on the race car that
helped to differentiate it from a distance. The caseback features a map of the tortuous Nurburgring
Nordschleife circuit, which featured over 170 corners winding through the Eifel mountains. The Prototipo Brian Redman Edition comes in special edition packaging along with a 42 page booklet handsigned by Brian himself.

This edition is comprised of 500 total numbered pieces,
with the fi rst 100 pieces in 18K Gold plate.
The 18K Gold pieces are priced at $1200 USD
Stainless Steel pieces are priced at $775 USD
