The trailer for a new short film. Looks good, although the Boxsters dampen my enthusiasm a bit ....

Riding with Ken is Yannis of Pipo Moteurs in France. They are one of the premier WRC engine builders and he is their engine management guru. He is riding in the car with Ken and tuning the engine management system on the fly! Yannis rode up to Tahquamenon Brewery with me a year ago during snow testing in the UP and got a bit of a thrill ride - it was blizzard conditions (2 feet of accumulation that night) and our caravan of experienced snow drivers was traveling 'at speed'. See old post HERE.

My friend Brian has been able to find all sorts of history and old photos on his RS over the past several years. Originally a Swiss car, it spent much of its time in New Zealand. A recent issue of Spiel featured an awesome period photo of Brian's car lined up against a Jag XKE on the cover. This car was definitely "used as intended" and is in beautiful original condition today!
A more recent pic (OK, maybe not quite 'recent' since my old BMW M3 is parked alongside!):
