Porsche GT1: the inside story
Show Notes

Tony Hatter and Paragon Porsche’s Mark Sumpter join the podcast to chat about the legendary GT1 on the 25th anniversary of its magnificent overall victory at Le Mans.

Hatter shares insights into how he designed the car, plus his role in the race itself in 1998, where the two factory GT1s delivered an emphatic 1-2 victory on what was Porsche’s 50th birthday. Sumpter then explains what it’s like to own and drive such a piece of automotive royalty.

Elsewhere, Lee chats to the guys at Shorade UK about their new Porsche-recommended body repair workshop in Bristol.
