Moby Dick


Today’s offering dates back nearly 30 years to October 1982. One of my first media passes at an endurance event was for the 1000kms of Brands Hatch, part of the World Endurance Championship for Drivers.

935 at Druids

John Fitzpatrick (driving) and David Hobbs took third place overall in this Kremer copy of the legendary Porsche 935-78.

Of course the titanic struggle at the front between Rothmans Porsche and Martini Lancia overshadowed this fine effort.

No matter, the 935 in this final evolution still looks the dog’s bollocks, even allowing for the passage of time.

    Yes.. The dogs..

    I recall seeing 935/78 at Silverstone, on it’s debut..

    One heck of a car.. It romped off to win by a fair margin.. But I have to say that the race is remembered more by me for Ronnie Peterson’s heroics in a fire-breathing BMW 320 turbo..
