We love watching old Porsche 911s out on track. They’re quick, make a lovely noise and are, above all, highly entertaining to watch. Further proof of this, if you needed it, is this brilliant onboard from Dijon last year.
Video: Porsche 911 onboard battle at Dijon
We’re riding onboard with Andrew Smith as he skillfully balances his 911 around Dijon-Prenois, battling it out with the #99 car of Sandy Watson/Andrew Kirklandy for the lead of Peter Auto's 2.0-Litre Cup. Even without the duel it would make for a cracking video, as it’s immediately obvious the best way to get performance out of this old rear-engined Porsche is to let things move around a little. And sometimes a lot. That these two cars are so close together (there are a few moments where you’ll be convinced they’re about to touch) is an added bonus.
