If I remember correctly, it was Porsche Marketing who decided that all Racing Porsches should use Synchromesh because Synchromesh was a Porsche invention and on all their road cars.

"But, please!" yelled Vic, "I can change gear so much quicker with a crash gearbox." (Or words to that effect.)

Funny though that it was Porsche who invented double-clutch gearboxes in about 1987, and they were about the last of the 'VW Group' to bring it to road cars!
