“The GT class is the most competitive it’s been for years” Like its predecessors, the 85th running of Le Mans proved an absolute spectacle of a race. Whereas in 2016 the headline-grabbing entertainment came in a sensational last five minutes, this year the fight for overall honours was a dogged affair, the pendulum swinging continuously between Porsche and Toyota as each attempted to steal a lead before one of its cars encountered a problem, shifting the advantage back towards its rival. It was utterly enthralling to watch. However, I can see problems arising for the top class of competition in the WEC, which could even undermine Porsche’s success at La Sarthe going forward. It all started when Audi dropped out of the LMP1 category before the season’s start, which we know was…

19th overall win at Le Mans No.2 919 battles back from the brink for an unlikely victory for Porsche Porsche’s LMP Team once again triumphed at the Le Mans 24 Hours to celebrate a hat-trick of back-to-back overall wins at the world’s most famous endurance race. The victory for Earl Bamber, Timo Bernhard and Brendon Hartley in the No.2 car marked an extraordinary turnaround of events that saw the car pitted for more than an hour battling a front axle drive problem only three hours into the race. Returning to the field 18 laps behind, the no.2 car was second to last overall and seemingly well out of the running for even a podium. That left the no.1 car of Nick Tandy, Andre Lotterer and Neel Jani up against a three-strong effort from…

•2017: FIA WEC Gulf Racing 991 RSR •2013-2016: Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup •2012: Porsche Carrera Cup GB Runner Up Reflecting on Le Mans 2017 Ben is left frustrated by BoP rules following his second WEC race at La Sarthe Another Le Mans 24 Hours is in the rear view mirror and, while I can be satisfied with my own performance in the race, there is a sense of frustration that I, Gulf Racing and the other Porsche runners in GT-Am were effectively fighting with one hand tied behind our backs. You obviously know the result by now, with Gulf Racing’s #86 Porsche 911 RSR again going the distance, completing the entire 24 hours without a hitch – testament to the great work that the team puts in, both before the race and at the track –…

Long lost UK 930 & Goodwood Revival rendezvous G’day Sir, As one of your distant antipodean subscribers, I write with a couple of very different topics where your UK-based readers may be able to assist. The first is to see if any of them can help fill in the first 10 years’ history of my 1980 930, chassis #93A00700536, engine #6700526, before it was shipped to Australia in about 1990. I have already tried Porsche Club GB, the DVLA and have visited the OPC in Reading, all without much success. The car was delivered new in April 1980 by AFN in London, and the only info that the OPC could provide due to privacy restrictions was that it was delivered to a director of Highmark Welding. At that time, the car was painted Sienna…

Scott Gardner Job Title Gold Diagnostic Technician Place of work Porsche Centre Bournemouth, UK Time at Porsche 11 years Q: “The glass roof of my 993 Targa has started to rattle when driving. The car has done just 55,000 miles. I know this is a fairly common problem, but what exactly is causing the roof to rattle? Steven Naismith, Scotland Scott’s answer: “993 Targas are generally pretty good and we don’t see many for rattles. The first thing I would do, would be to open the roof and lubricate all of the rubber seals as these can cause creaking and squeaking type noises from body flex over bumpy roads. If while driving you can get a passenger to apply pressure to various points to locate it and narrow down the possible causes this may help.”…
