Art Bunker

b Kansas City (United States), January 26, 1928

Carel teamed up with Art Bunker in the American's Spyder for the 1957 Venezuela GP and the 1958 Sebring 12 Hrs.

The Kansas driver and shop owner was a member of the Porsche Club of America who found out that he was slightly more talented than the average Weissach aficionado. Under the Art’s Sports Motors banner he started entering his 550 in US sportscar events. Intended to cross the Atlantic in 1958 he teamed up for Le Mans with Carel and Herbert Linge but eventually did not drive. He changed to a 718 RSK in 1959 but this time he failed to get an entry for Sebring.

Bunker raced Porsches into the sixties, when the veteran racer was entered by Bob Hindson in the SCCA Mid-West championship, driving a 914-6. The Hindson association continued into the seventies when they took a 911 Turbo to the Daytona 24 Hrs.
