In praise of Luft GB

Total 911 - - Views - Dear Sir, ed­die Lee

A few friends and I have just en­joyed a bril­liant day at Luft GB, the Bri­tish ver­sion of Luft­gekühlt started by Patrick Long in Cal­i­for­nia. I felt com­pelled to write a note (which I hope you’ll pub­lish) to say well done to the or­gan­is­ers who have done a stel­lar job in bring­ing this fan­tas­tic show­case of all things air-cooled to the UK.

Us Brits watched with jealousy from afar as Luft­gekühlt took a hold of Cal­i­for­nia, so it was great to stage the first ‘Luft’ on for­eign soil. It makes you re­alise what spe­cial metal we have on th­ese shores – the level of cars in at­ten­dance was hon­estly out­stand­ing. Let’s hope th­ese cars make more of an ap­pear­ance at other events as they just get shut away oth­er­wise. You’re right, ku­dos must go to the or­gan­is­ers for bring­ing Luft to th­ese shores. Bri­tain is an im­por­tant ter­ri­tory for porsche com­mer­cially speak­ing, so it’s a nat­u­ral home for an event of Luft’s na­ture. We have the cars and we have the peo­ple! We’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing where the coun­try-hop­ping Luft show rocks up next.
