In praise of Luft GB
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.
