Porche 924

In 2000, I decided to go motor-racing to see if I could keep up. I looked at the various series that were going and picked on the Hankook series for 924 as the cars were cheap to buy, front-engined and you weren’t allowed to modify the engines at all which kept the costs right down.

When you rally you never know how quick you are because even guys in identical cars to you will have different tyres and tuning etc., whereas these Porsches are all the same horsepower, tyres, and weight including the driver.
It turned out I could keep up; I never won a race but finished 2nd, and never out of the top 6th. I sold the car after 10 races as I could then upgrade my competitor licence from B to A, but I’ve not been back – I find it boring going round and round in circles.
