              Despite this puncture on the Pau race track during the last leg of this competition they finished 4th overall behind 3 off Ferrari 250GT SWB hence their nickname 250GT "Tdf" (for Tour de France)

                Robert Buchet again with team mate Paul Ernest Strahle at the start of the 1961 Tour de Corse on another factory car plate WN-V-1 in September
                In September 1961 the weather conditions in the Corsican mountains that the rallye had to be stopped after 400 Km (of the 1200 planned)
                Only 2 Citroen DS 19 finished the race but out of time
                The classification was estabish at the end of the 2nd leg of the rallye
                Even with that only 12 cars out of the 80 + starters were classified
                The 356 Carrera was not amongst these 12 cars

                    For fun, Porsche plates WN-V-1, WN-V-2 and WN-V-3 belonged to the factory
                    They were placed on several different cars depending upon the circomstances
                    The below pictures were taken by the Porsche press service during a publicity shooting
