It’s great to be out and about rather a lot again after a prolonged period of enforced confinement as our world came to terms with COVID. The ability to once again just pack a bag and hit the road has been reinvigorating, especially when at the wheel of Porsche’s stunning 992 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition, which you can read about in detail on page 18. On my travels I’ve noticed more 911s out enjoying the road than usual as owners fully commit to the ‘Carpe Secundum’ school of thought. As is said many times in this magazine, a Porsche is built to be driven, not sat at home in a garage, so this latest revelation has been great to see. It’s also been highly pleasurable to enjoy the company of…

As I mentioned last month, my first race back from my horrendous accident was incredible, as I won the 1978 12 Hours of Sebring in Dick Barbour’s number two Porsche 935. In 1979 I raced my final stint at Sebring, finishing by taking 2nd place also in a Porsche 935. I did four or five races a year which were mostly for Dick Barbour, until I had to make a decision in late 1979 as to what I was going to do. The last thing I wanted to do was sell the farm, the animals and all the equipment, but I didn’t have any means of earning a living. Without any racing contracts like those with Porsche and Ferrari, there was no way to sustain the farm. It was clear I needed…

Auto aromatics Dear Sir, It’s a funny thing, memory. Time passes, and we often look back with fondness to a moment that will trigger a passing smile. It can be the smallest thing too, and different for all of us. For some reason, smells are powerful triggers for me. I had one hit me like a hammer some ten or twelve years ago, that reignited a passion, left dormant too long. Oil burning on a hot exhaust. Not an attractive smell, I know, but sometimes the most memorable are not the most pleasant! It is the smell of an air-cooled car. In reality, air-cooled cars are actually oil cooled. But air is forced past an oil cooler and the engine heads in an early VW or Porsche to try, at times in futility,…
