JAZ SPA SUCCESS
Some news in from Steve Winter at Jaz Porsche: ʻAfter a successful weekend at the Goodwood Revival running a 356 Pre-a in the Fordwater trophy, our team moved on to our annual visit to Spa Francorchamps for the world famous Spa Six Hours endurance race. This event sees over 110 cars line up on the grid of the famous Ardennes circuit.
ʻStarting at 4.00pm, the race runs into the dark, so it is not only a challenge for the drivers and cars, it also makes for an amazing spectacle for spectators as the cars light up the hillsides at night. With a wide variety of cars from Ford GT40S, Jaguar E-types, Lotus Elans, Porsche 911s and many others, there is something for everyone.
ʻ2018 marked the 14th time Jaz Porsche has entered this event, often with two cars. This year our car finished 5th in class and was the highest placed 911. Weʼve been the highest placed 911 twice in three years and second place once in that time, too, so not a bad record! We ran in GTS11, which is the largest class with over 30 cars coming from all over Europe.
ʻThis whole event is truly magical so if, like the 19 Porsches and over 25 Porsche Club GB Region 20 members who made the trip to support us this year, you can make it to Belgium next September, you can rest assured we will be there.ʼ Keep up to date with Jaz news at www.jazweb.co.uk
