In most areas of my life, I am not what you would call a traditionalist. Most of the time I don’t believe the good old days were anything of the sort, and the fact that those lucky enough to live in the developed world today live longer, healthier and, I am given to understand, generally happier lives would seem to support the contention. With cars, however, I make an exception.
Thank Frankel it's Friday: How the Porsche GT2 RS won me over to turbocharging
Andrew Frankel has been racing cars for over 20 years and testing them for nearer to 30. He is senior contributing writer to both Autocar and MotorSport magazines, sits on the Car of the Year jury and was chief car tester for the Sunday Times for 15 years. He cites driving and writing as the only disciplines for which he has any talent and therefore considers himself vocationally employed. When he is not working he lives quietly in the Wye Valley with his family, a small and unimportant accumulation of cheap old cars and some sheep.
