Let’s go rallying.
Despite the sketchiness of that first early 911 drive, the bug had bitten. The Porsche Club of NSW was joined and a couple of road going 911’s came and went. The hunt was then on for an early 911 suitable for club level motorsport and ultimately tarmac rallying. A RHD, non sunroof, LWB 911T was eventually located and purchased. This car was developed over time from a basic 2.7RS replica into a lightweight 911ST format car with a twin plug 2.8RSR+ drivetrain.
This car was campaigned in club sprints, circuit racing, Targa Tasmania (Gold plates, class wins, top 20 finishes), Classic Adelaide rally (Gold plates, class wins and top five finishes) and other similar events like East Coast Classic Rally and Mt Buller Sprint.
Ryan’s engineering/legal background was a perfect fit in finding allowable modifications and specifications within the complex rules and regulations associated with historic motorsport.
This car has been retired from tarmac rallying but is still in the Zollhaus garage awaiting reinvention as a (very) quick street hotrod – and maybe back to its delivery colour: Conda green.
