928 turns 40 at Brook­lands

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Porsche Club Great Bri­tain cel­e­brated the Porsche 928’s 40th an­niver­sary with a 156-strong gath­er­ing of cars at Brook­lands on 28 May, 136 of which took to the bank­ing, led by 928 reg­is­ter sec­re­tary, David Hem­mings. Other in­flu­en­tial peo­ple in the model’s his­tory who at­tended the event included rac­ing driver Tony Dron, whose only vic­tory in a 24-hour race was be­hind the wheel of a 928 S2.

Steve Cas­tle, Brook­lands’ head of track and air events, says: ‘It was in­cred­i­ble, and also a record num­ber for any Porsche Club GB reg­is­ter event. We had the first 928, last 928, plus all the vari­a­tions. Peo­ple even came from as far as Hol­land and Ger­many. The at­mos­phere was bril­liant, ev­ery­one had beam­ing smiles on their faces.

‘What a way to cel­e­brate the his­tory of the mar­que!’
