ALL ROADS LEAD TO WEST­COTT

Classic Porsche - - News & Products -

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.
