Vintage rules

Sometimes I think there’s more fun and passion at vintage races, than on “modern” races… Have a look.

50 year old tech, sort of…

Old Porsches are still strongly competent machinery, also when racing. Below, there’s a small comparison between the times obtained by a Porsche 918 vs a 60’s 911, although one with a few 90’s bits.

And if you dig for facts you can also learn that this particular example (Jack Olsen’s Black Beauty II) bettered the time set by a well driven, current gen 911 (a 991 50 year edition). Guess there’s no replacement for lightness…

For your viewing pleasure, you can also watch the whole lap.

This reminds me of a phrase I read…There are no classic Porsches, just old Porsches… Get the meaning ?
