HISTORIC RACING

 
 

PAUL STEPHENS

Paul Stephens has been a Porsche enthusiast all his life. He learned to drive at the age of six, had his first accident at the age of seven, and clocked his first 100mph run, in a 911, when he was just nine. He won his first championship in 1984 and by 21, had bought and restored his first 911, which he occasionally campaigned in the one-make Pirelli series: within a decade, he’d won his second championship and went on to race not only Porsche, but Caterham, Marcos and Chevron with several class and overall race wins, before retiring from racing (so he thought) in 2003. In 2013, he returned to the track at the Spa Classic in a 911ST, finishing third in class, competed in the Silverstone 24 Hours in 2015, again finishing third in class and competed in the Le Mans Classic in 2016, finishing 23rd overall and third 911 home in Plateau 4.

PETER AUTO HISTORIC RACE SERIES

Now in its ninth season, the 2018 Peter Auto Sixties Endurance Race Series features sports cars and GTs that saw action in World Championship races before 1966. The cars battling it out in the two-hour races are legendary, including AC Cobra, Ford GT40, Ferrari 250LM, Lotus 26R, Jaguar E-Type and, of course, the Porsche 911, evoking a golden age of motorsport for drivers and fans alike. A special classification based on an Index of Performance gives the smaller- capacity cars an advantage against more powerful rivals, allowing them to punch above their weight in the overall results.

 

This season, Paul will be competing in selected rounds with a 1965 2.0-litre 911 SWB (short wheel base), which has been race prepared in our workshop and is affectionally known as the ‘Little Red Rooster’.
