This year's Festival of Speed and Revival have been cancelled. Not particularly surprising, perhaps, but very disappointing for all those involved and connected.

The 1967 911S was widely used in competition and a small number of cars were clearly ordered with that in mind. At least four were supplied in competition spec in the UK – it’s probable there were others, but not many. The first on the list is Dickie Stoop’s silver car. The experienced racer ordered it with a rally kit and special engine mods, a Nurburgring ratio gearbox, a limited slip diff, a 100-litre tank, a roll hoop and a passenger sports seat. At much the same ...

We do love a bit of research. I recently spent a ridiculous amount of time compiling a list of the first RHD 911S’s. I can’t really remember why. I‘m not even sure there was a real point – just a pedantic need to know. Oddly, I have since met others who have done exactly the same thing. The Porsche Cars GB records suggest 35 such cars came to the UK in the second part of 1966 and the first part of 1967. I should thank Peter Cook, archivist at the Porsche Club, for ...
