Porsche Road & Race is an online motoring and motorsport journal covering top-of-the-line Porsche road cars and Porsche motorsport. This includes the launch of new road models (ROAD CARS), detailed reviews of older Porsche models (YESTERYEAR ROAD CARS) as well as comprehensive coverage of Porsche’s YESTERYEAR MOTORSPORT activities, whether by factory or privateer teams. Porsche wouldn’t be where it is today if it weren’t for its early models. So you will find a healthy amount of coverage of older road and race cars because we believe this is important. These features will typically be longer as we will bring racing or model history into each feature, as well as interviews where relevant.
Most write-ups of a particular model will be well supported by interviews with key players in that car’s design and/or development, or in the case of a race car, the racing driver(s) and motorsport personnel. We are big on interviews, having interviewed race engineers, racing drivers, designers, production engineers, marketing directors, PR people, team owners and weekend warriors from all over the world who were in action as far back as the 1950s.
Our CONTRIBUTORS have been carefully selected as the experience gained in their area of knowledge is key to bringing you, the reader, an informative and enjoyable feature. A couple of our contributors have spent many years at the sharp end of the sport with race teams, others are full-time working journalists and broadcasters, while we also have current drivers in the sport to bring you their stories from behind the wheel.
So, what else can you expect from Porsche Road & Race? In our NEWS section you will find up to date news on Porsche road and race cars as well as corporate happenings and other items relevant to the marque. Also, from time to time we will bring you news of significant Porsches for sale, because it is both interesting and useful to some, to keep track of the movement of important cars. Our work in the past has brought us into contact with experts in the field of selling and auctioning important cars. An analysis of the market as told to us by these experts will help to unravel the forces behind the price movements. With many years of researching and writing about Porsches behind us, we have friends and colleagues around the world who we will call on to cover a specific model, event or race. This means that Porsche Road & Race readers can look forward to a broad spectrum of coverage on models, eras, geographical areas, and events to look forward to.
Race reports and write-ups from current motorsport events around the world can be found in our MOTORSPORT section which is conveniently divided into the different race series, i.e. WEC, SUPERCUP, CARRERA CUP. In the ROAD CARS section, we will have information relating to current and new models, launch info and reviews.
You will also find a section called FACT FILES, and this is divided into RACE CARS, RACING DRIVERS, TEAM PERSONNEL. This will contain facts and specifications about race cars, drivers, team personnel and privateer teams from the current year.
Another section is BOOK REVIEWS which is just what is says. Extensive research and reading on the subject of Porsche cars has, over the years, resulted in the accumulation of a significant number of books and research material on this subject. In addition, we receive new books on a regular basis for review, and as a result, we will post reviews on both new and older Porsche books here for you to read. Any Porsche enthusiast will undoubtedly be looking to add to his/her collection of books on the subject, so hopefully this section will serve as your favourite ‘go-to’ section for such material.
Our CALENDAR is something that will be built up over time, and we hope that you will let us know about any Porsche events in your area in time. We are starting with the dates for WEC, IMSA, Supercup and Carrera Cup.
Porsche Road & Race would not be what it is without the help and contributions from a number of key members and contributors from around the world. Under the heading CONTRIBUTORS, you will be able to find out more about those responsible for pulling this journal together, and what they get up to in their spare time. Pastimes include reading, photography, sailing, golf, wine tasting and cycling, but one common thread runs through all of their veins… a passion for Porsches.
Finally, we at Porsche Road & Race, are highly motivated by this superb marque and pretty much everything we do relates to this proud brand. So, pour yourself a cup of coffee, sit back and indulge yourself in some purposeful reading on your favourite subject…Porsche!
