JAZ SPA SUC­CESS

Classic Porsche - - Contents -

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
