My Favorite Apple

Apple Computer Race Cars

Written By: Scott - Nov• 18•11

At first my Apple logo sticker looked maybe a bit odd, but something about it just felt right. Then I learned Apple actually did sponsor race cars. Want to see them? They are really cool.

First let’s start with mine. Just messing around, but not bad eh?

And then- No, not a cartoon version either…

This is  the Apple Computer car that raced at the 1980 Le Mans 24hrs by Allan Moffat for Dick Barbour Racing. Driven by Bobby Rahal, Allan Moffet & Bob Garretson.

The Apple Computers sponsorship would appear on the car for the Sebring 12 Hours in 1980 and the Dick Barbour Racing entry would achieve a 7th place finish in the 12 Hour endurance classic with Rahal, Garretson, and Nierop behind the wheel.  The racing white paint and Apple Computer livery would remain throughout 1980, including the team’s run at the 1980 Le Mans 24 Hour Race in June.
