John McCullagh drives Porsche 906

Porsche 906 (chassis #906/108) takes turn 1 on its way up the Hill at the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed

One of the motoring highlights of my 2016 season, if not of all time, has to be driving a fabulous Porsche 906 on the Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb.

The car had come from the Porsche Museum, where in recent years it had been restored to its original, and immaculate, spec. This particular prototype has a very unusual history, as it ran at the 1967 Nürburgring 1000Km race as a camera car – filming the race for the German ZDF channel (Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen). Hence the branding!
