Imagine the surprise when we arrived at the track, to be greeted by a scene of snowy white with zero degrees showing
Total 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps, 4 May 2019: Imagine the surprise when we arrived at the track, to be greeted by a scene of snowy white with zero degrees showing on the circuit thermometer, and then to get a further snowy blast at the start of the race. This was completely unexpected!

As another year draws to a close, and those fireside chats become more frequent, we take a moment to reflect on some of our more popular features over these last twelve months. This year we have selected our best dozen features that represent some of the more enjoyable and significant events from the year just gone.
2019 has been a really busy year in many ways for PORSCHE ROAD & RACE, with a lot of travelling around the UK and Europe, so we hope that you enjoy our selection. The features are listed simply in date order as they appeared on our website. So, without further delay, pour yourself a glass or mug of your favourite beverage, sit back in your rocker, and take a trip down memory lane with us…

Kieron Fennelly penned a superb profile on this complex man which you can read here.
