Hello to those I know on here from what feels like a past life! I’m looking to get another 924, so thought I’d re-engage.

Some of you may also know Gavin Johnson, who along with his team PDC Racing has prepared an historic 924 to race in the ‘70s Road Sports class of the Historic Sports Car Club.

I made a film with the car, and thought you might appreciate it here: https://youtu.be/pr6mXcH8F54

Cheers
Paul

Hi Paul,

I really enjoyed your little film and your style with the camera. There's plenty of youtube car videos with very less natural presentation! You make some excellent points about the Historic series and 924 being perfect for "run what you brung" racing.

Gavin has had great success in the 924 championship, so I wish him all the best in the Historics.

Thanks - yes, I’m interested to see how well he goes in the historic spec car too! The car was driven in anger for the first time today at Cadwell Park. We’re getting closer!

Great video Paul, really enjoyed it!

Is it just a standard 924 road car with some racing mods or is the engine tuned up also?

All the best,
Brendan

I believe totally standard - the idea behind the series is period production car racing. The regs are very strict on prep, including the graphics (which had to be re-done to fit in).

And thanks!

Here’s the original 924 film I did - please excuse the production values, this was an experiment at the time!

Very cool !! an old Richard Hammond film with David Attenborough voice-over - obviously well before Hammond learned how to drive like a proper nutter by the looks of it :lol: :beer:

Ha ha, I'm only joking. Quite a good presenter. Please drive faster though !! :party:
