Hurley Haywood first raced in IMSA in 1971, while still enlisted in the Army. He co-drove with Peter Gregg that year in a Porsche 914/6, capturing the first IMSA GT Championship title. After his Army discharge, in late 1971, Haywood moved to Jacksonville near the Brumos shop where a 2.5 liter 911S was being prepared for the 1972 season.
The tangerine #59 Brumos Porsche 911S competed in all 10 Camel GT races of 1972, and for the second year in a row, Haywood was IMSA's top driver. Although he generally co-drove with Gregg, Haywood drove solo in shorter events as Peter competed in the CAN-AM series. The championship came down to the final lap of the final race with Haywood securing the win.
1972 was the last of the tangerine Porsches at Brumos and 1973 saw the introduction of the now familiar red, white and blue livery. However, this was the first 911 to secure an IMSA championship. Today it is part of the Brumos Collection.
