During Le Mans 70, the number 20 Porsche 917K, was driven by Joe Siffert and Brian Redman. It used the new 4.9 liter Flat-12 engine and had qualified in 3rd place but was retired after 156 laps due to a blown engine, it finished at the 24th place.

Number 21 used a 4.9 liter Flat-12 too. It was driven by Pedro Rodriguez and Leo Kinnunen. It finished at the 48th place as it was retired after 22 laps only due to a broken connecting rod.

The number 22 and its "smaller" 4.5 liter Flat-12 was driven by the motorcycle champion Mike Hailwood and David Hobbs. The vehicle had qualified 10th and after only three hours was running in third place. Unfortunately, an Alfa Romeo T33/3 driven by Carlo Facetti spun and hit a wall and Hailwood was unable to evade the accident. It was retired at lap 49 and finished 41st.
