Bellof achieved the third place in the orange-colored Jägermeister Porsche in the DRM race and with the help of 470 kW / 640 hp in the customer vehicles, to which the diecast modelcars remind to and are available under item number 153846601.
Of course, the miniatures of the Porsche 956, which is powered by an air-cooled six-cylinder boxer engine, match exactly the lines and appearance of the popular model with the chassis number 116 and slavishly reproduce every detail. In the chassis no. 009 the driver pair Stefan Bellof and Derek Bell achieved the victory at the 1000 kilometers of the Nürburgring two weeks later. Minichamps dedicated a limited edition of 150 pieces to the vehicle of the Porsche factory team in the blue and white Rothmans colors, also in the format 1:18 and in the same first-class finish as the aforementioned Jägermeister-Brun-Porsche.

Two winner types: Bellof and the Porsche 956
The victory at the Nürburgring was an important step for Stefan Bellof to win the Endurance World Championship of 1984. Seven times and used on both racing cars, here reduced to modelscars, the likeable and popular man from Giessen drove in this season on the top podium. Only the race at Silverstone in May is considered as a slip-up with 10th place. The Porsche 956 was also a winner: The sports car prototype won from 1982 to 1984 all the titles of the FIA World Sportscar Championship, both in the ratings for drivers and the brands.
