BRIAN REDMAN – PORSCHE RACING ICON

I was recently called in to be the official photographer for a regional PCA tech session featuring the famous Porsche race driver Brian Redman. Brian’s racing record reads like a list of every famous team and venue. Alfa Romeo, BMW, Ferrari, Lola, Cooper, Brabham, McLaren, BRM, Shadow, Chevron, Ford, Jaguar, Aston Martin, and, of course, Porsche.

I was able to spend some time alone with Brian, a very nice man. My photographs were used in both the regional and national Porsche Club of America January 2023 publications.

KEN BLOCK R.I.P.

Posted yesterday about the rally car driver and marketing influencer:

“It’s with our deepest regrets that we can confirm that Ken Block passed away in a snowmobile accident today.

Ken was a visionary, a pioneer and an icon. And most importantly, a father and husband.

He will be incredibly missed.”

THE LAST ST

My favorite 911.

In the August 2022 issue of Porsche Club of America’s national magazine Panorama, my photographs illustrate a feature about the last 1972 911ST built. I shot this four years ago, and, even though some stories can take a while to make it into a magazine, I’m absolutely thrilled to see it in print now! We kept it B/W, and the writer Jay Gillotti did a great job with the text. Thanks, PCA!

PORSCHE BACK IN FORMULA 1?

Word is Porsche and Audi are planning to join Formula 1 in 2026. Working in F1 as powertrain suppliers, Porsche is considering working in conjunction with Red Bull Racing, and Audi could be supplying McLaren. It’s all dependent on how parent company Volkswagen decides to allocate development costs across its racing teams. The last time Porsche was in F1 was with the MP4/2C TAG engine in a McLaren during the ’80s.

VIC ELFORD R.I.P.

One of the greatest Porsche drivers in history passed away today.

He was also one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. He always took my questions without complaint, and was as humble as humanely possible considering all his accomplishments in motor racing.

Fans will always remember Vic’s rally victories at Monte Carlo in a 911 and his brave win in a Porsche 907 at the Targa Florio in 1968, where he came from far behind in the last laps to pass the lead Ferrari.

RUSSIA FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX CANCELLED AFTER UKRAINE INVASION

This is just another sign that the world sees Russia differently today. The Haas F1 racing team also removed the Russian flag-based livery from their cars. Many drivers say they had already decided not to attend the Russian race scheduled for September anyway. Hopefully, more financial sanctions of this type will help to stop the insanity.

RE-INSPIRED 911 TURBO BY SINGER

Singer has done it again. Here’s a first glimpse at their new car inspired by the original Porsche 930. It’s a 450-plus-horsepower, carbon-fiber-bodied redefinition of an ’80s classic that can be specced with all sorts of refinements, including AWD.

Power comes from a modified a 3.8L block based on a Hans Mezger-designed air-cooled flat-six. Twin turbochargers with electronically actuated waste gates and bespoke air-to-water intercoolers mounted inside the intake manifolds provide the forced cool air necessary to achieve this kind of power.

BACK FROM MONTEREY CAR WEEK

What a phenomenal show. There were so many highlights to recount. Certainly, one was the thirteen Porsche 917s brought together for a once-in-a-lifetime photo shoot on Saturday at Pebble Beach in Carmel, California. Wow.

Thanks to writer Jay Gillotti, who invited me to make the photos for the Porsche Club of America’s Panorama Magazine feature. It was great to reconnect (and connect) with many new and old clients and friends over the weekend.
