Happy New Year Everyone.
Apology to Tony Brown
For everyone else, the comment was made from my biased point of view as 968 Reg. Sec. as a tongue in cheek comment about cars that have the engine in the wrong place (911s of course) and was not intended as a personal criticism on Tony's decision making or on his racing ability and nobody should take it as such. Tony has had good results in 911s in the years racing and this was not put forward in the article as it was written purely as news of the success of 968s.
The afternoon was broken up by a light aircraft having to make an emergency landing but it was more of a spectacle than a real bother and only took a few minutes to clear. I was there to learn a little about suspension set-ups, like how soft or hard suspension will affect understeer and oversteer. Having adjustable suspension makes all the difference, especially when you need to then reset it to a softer setting to drive home. Thanks to my passenger Jason (968 CS) for useful tips.
It was nice to see that a few of the Porsches were concours quality but still being used as intended and that there are other people out there that believe the cars can be well looked after and be in tip top condition as well. I've often heard people say 'what are you polishing it for you should be driving it'. My feelings are why not do both. Use it as intended but always have it presentable.
Since going on track days, one of the things I have decided to do is to upgrade the brakes, this can be done quite easily for a few hundred pounds with 928 S4 calipers and disks, adapter plates are needed but these can be bought as well.
Taken at the German Sports Car Show in September.
There will also be social meet ups at various
tracks. If you have anything you would like to be added just let me know.
