Last week we had a life-long friend of Tuthill Porsche pop by with some friends, and we do love to throw some Tuthill hospitality out there when people come to visit.
John and his merry crew, were given a tour of the facilities, as none of them had seen our new workshop before. When we say new, we of course mean the building we’ve been working in for three years now!
After a tour and a re-fuel at the local pub, it was time for everyone to head for Turweston Aerodrome. They met with Simon and Shea from the workshop, and Paul Gwynne from the rally school that is tucked around the back of the airfield.
On first arrival the guests were worried it was a short course, and that all the fun would be over far too soon, but they were pleasantly surprised when they realised their assumptions were wrong.
Hidden behind tire walls and hedges is a dusty circuit made up of hair-pin bends, snaky- slaloms between cones and straights where you can bury that right foot!
Simon took them out onto the course one-by-one for passenger laps in one of our Safari 911’s. You may recognise it.. It was raced by Ken Block and Alex Gelsomino during the East African Safari Classic Rally, in February 2022.
Luckily for this lot, Simon heads out to Sweden each year for our Below Zero Ice Driving experience, so is adept at the wheel of a classic 911.
It’s a great reminder of how much fun it is to be able to drive around in these rear-engine cars, and if you fancy some practice yourself ahead of a rally or other driving experience, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
