Spent the last 2 weekends at Hampton Downs for the NZ Festival of Motor Racing, this year the theme was Porsche.
Some very cool machines there, but I gotta say the Porsche racing was completely overshadowed by the muscle cars, pre 65s and European Racing Classics.

Although, the 1977 Porsche 935 from the Porsche Museum in Germany was kinda nice, as was Bill Fulford's fully restored Lighting Direct 911 and the fire breathing ex Ray Williams 911 GT2.

Excuse the crap resolution photos, had to reduce them to post here.

10 grand short of six figures for a Civic
Hopefully it will make the RR a bit cheaper.

For you lot with a leaning towards all things automotive, and specifically race cars, I encourage you to have a look at the Farcebook group "RCIS Race Cars In Sheds"

It's basically a place for people to show what race cars stuff they're doing in their sheds. NZ based page with mostly kiwi ingenuity stuff, and some overseas content. There are some incredibly clever people around, and alot of them are members of the group.

Of course, I'm totally unbiased in my love for the page, being one of the 2 admins...:D *shameless plug*
