equipped in the country – and to view a recently reassembled 930 Turbo unit being put through its paces on the dyno.
Also on show will be the companyʼs state-of-the-art Bosch MFI test-rig in action, possibly with a 12-cylinder 917 pump ʻon the tableʼ, and the no less sophisticated box of tricks by means of which historic Porsches reveal the sometimes nefariously hidden secrets of their chassis numbers.
Best bring your credit card or some cash, too. The companyʼs hoard of aircooled 911 parts from the south of France (see the news story on page 17 of issue #51) has been sorted and catalogued, and is ready and waiting to give life to potentially hundreds of projects.
The company is also extending an invitation to other Porsche specialists and individuals who wish to sell surplus spares. ʻWe want to recreate the atmosphere of the sale days that used to take place at Husborne Crawley, and perhaps even to make this an annual event, as that was,ʼ says office manager Nicole Parish. ʻA three-metre pitch will cost just £50, a six-metre plot £80, or for £120 vendors can have a full 10-metre-long space. We are also inviting onto the site a number of mobile catering vehicles offering good-quality hot and cold food and drinks.ʼ
Your favourite Porsche magazines plan to be there, too, with members of both the 911 & Porsche World and Classic Porsche teams present to share the fun, and to dispense not only the two latest editions of each title but also the back copies that remain so popular – and, of course, just to chat.
