Paris Six Hours 1979… OMC overall win. Beats the Merc T-4 with a 3 liter V-6

Paris 6 Hours 1979.
More OMC victories over the Merc T4.


This was the largest factory battle of the year.
Three boats rigged with the big bore V6 -T4 from Team Mercury.
OMC used their 3 liter V6 looper fuel injection and the result couldent get any better.
Cees van der Velden/Tom Posey won in the #4 Velden/Johnson RS 3 liter.. leading 181 laps of the 185 he won with.
Second was Renato Molinari/Barry Woods in the #3 Molinari/Evinrude CCC 3 liter 184 laps.
No Merc T4 finished the race.
How do I know this:
I was there racing the OE/F3 class and finished third with our Sjoberg/Evinrude CC
