I generally try to stay on the other side of the camera, but couldn't resist trying the Hornet for size today. Good job I'd not had a bigger breakfast, as there's not a great deal of room in that bucket seat (rumoured to have been made from an old wheelbarrow!) #veetwin #vintagecar #vintageracecar #racecar #HistoricRacing #vintagesportscar #carsofinstagram #hotrod #instacar #cars247 #twinengine #harleydavidson

Freedom. I'm feeling tired and a bit sad today, an emotional state of mind so different from the sense of freedom I felt while shooting this image at Copse corner during the Silverstone Classic. It was a sunny day, my holiday was about to start straight after the Classic, and the morning I spent at 'the other end' (the National Paddock from which that morning's races started) was purely for fun, as I only had business in the International Paddock where action would start in the afternoon. For a few hours I had no care in the world, which is opposite to where I am now, sitting in my mother's house to where I had to rush after I heard a very dim and lacklustre voice on the telephone say she thought she was going to die. She has her eyes closed now, as she can't see straight, and as I'm typing this she's half asleep. We're waiting for her general practitioner to arrive who will hopefully confirm it's nothing but low blood pressure or something. Strangely, it's the same day - two days after the Nürburgring - that my father died two years ago, and I have a gut feeling that I'm about to enter a similar period of worry. #silverstone #silverstoneclassic #northamptonshire #england #britain #ukpotd #excellent_britain #visitengland #motorsport #motorracing #historicracing #lister #knobbly #sportscar #panning #olympus #em1markii #ig_mirrorless #mdiepraam_motorsport

Pura Emozione - Ferrari 250 GTE Berlinetta, 1962


19

In total, Porsche would produce 91 962s between 1984 and 1991. 16 were officially used by the factory team, while 75 were sold to customers. Some 956s were rebuilt as 962s, with two being previously written off and four others simply rebuilt. Three 962s that were badly damaged were also rebuilt and had been given a new chassis number due to the extensive reconstruction. Due to the high demand for 962 parts, some aluminium chassis were built by Fabcar in the United States before being shipped to Germany for completion. Derek Bell, a 5-time Le Mans winner, drove the 962 to 21 victories between 1985 and 1987, remarked that it was "a fabulous car, but considering how thorough (Norbert) Singer (the designer of the 962 and head of Porsche's motorsport division at the time) and the team were, it was really quite easy to drive.

The Porsche 962 (also known as the 962C in its Group C form) is a sports-prototype racing car built by Porsche as a replacement for the 956 and designed mainly to comply with IMSA's GTP regulations, although it would later compete in the European Group C formula as the 956 had. The 962 was introduced at the end of 1984, from which it quickly became successful through private owners while having a remarkably long-lived career, with some examples still proving competitive into the mid-1990s. The vehicle was later replaced by the Porsche WSC-95.

When the Porsche 956 was developed in late 1981, the intention of Porsche was to run the car in both the World Sportscar Championship and the North American IMSA GTP Championship. However IMSA GTP regulations differed from Group C and subsequently the 956 was banned in the US series on safety grounds as the driver's feet were ahead of the front axle center line.

To make the 956 eligible under the new IMSA regulations, Porsche extended the 956's wheelbase to move the front wheels ahead of the pedal box. A steel roll cage was also integrated into the new aluminium chassis. For an engine, the Porsche 934-derived Type-935 2.8L flat-6 was used with air cooling and a single Kühnle, Kopp und Kausch AG K36 turbocharger instead of the twin K27 turbochargers of the Group C 956, as twin-turbo systems were not allowed in IMSA's GTP class at the time.

The newer Andial built 3.2L fuel injected flat-6 would be placed in the 962 by the middle of 1985 for IMSA GT, which made the car more competitive against Jaguar. However it would not be until 1986 that the 2.6L unit from the 956 was replaced in the World Sportscar Championship, using 2.8L, 3.0L, and 3.2L variants with dual turbochargers. The cars run under World Sportscar Championship regulations were designated as 962C to separate them from their IMSA GTP counterparts. The 3.2L unit, which had been eligible under IMSA's Group 3 engine rules, was banned by IMSA in 1987. In 1988, to counteract against the factory Nissans and the threat of withdrawal from Porsche teams, water-cooled twin-turbo Porsche engines would be allowed back but with 36 mm restrictors.

I like box butts and I cannot lie
You other ‘grammers can’t deny
When car rolls up with those itty bitty rims
Some chrome trim with reflections
You take snaps, wanna get a handle
‘Cause you know that butt has angles
On the edges of its lines
I’m hooked and it’s so sublime
Oh Berlina, I wanna get wit’cha
And take your picture.
