Such a gorgeous pic

Looks like a quiet moment of reverie. But such is the deceptive nature of photography, given that a Porsche 956 in the forest would be anything but (unless it DNF).

  1. Stefan is approaching the Karussel here

  2. I have a funny episode involving the 956 and the Ring.
    Last year I was doing a photo covering of Algarve Historic Festival at Portimão and was invited to join an english gentleman racer and his friends for dinner. I met him, sat at the table and after 2 hours chating with him and his friends, the conversation inevitably turned to the Ring. I made the remark “And to think there were guys going so damn fast around that track with 956’s!”
    Seating in front of me, reknown advanced driving instructor James Woods said, pointing out to the man right next to him: “Yes. like John did.” Suprised I asked “You did, John?” and after some seconds and a wake-up I asked: “Oh, Jeez! Am I having dinner with John Fitzpatrick?” I was! 🙂
