8am on a Monday morning, I received a call from a good client asking me to hop straight on a plane and meet him near Brussels at AUGUST, classic Porsche specialist. Waiting for me was not just one, but two 1967 Porsche 911R ex racing cars !
Tuesday morning I jumped on a plane, flew to Charleroi and rented a car, a surprisingly good, new Hyundai i10 1.0 petrol.
A characterful 3cylinder. Kind of like half a Porsche !
The weather was against us, it was raining on and off all day. This was not going to stop me, I only had one afternoon to get this right so time was of essence.
We started the car up and my client roared off down the road warming up the vintage racing engine.
In fact he took the car straight up to nearly 8000 RPM, the flat 6 was screaming !
We head to various locations with the two cars and I got to work, trying to capture the spirit of these two multi million euro classics.
The final results are below.
