Chez Watts | Porsche Track Day
Chez Watts has just sent me though these amazing photos of a Porsche track day that was recently held at a rather saturated Queensland Raceway. It’s not often I manage to get out to any sort of track day like this, so I was ecstatic to hear he had this content.
It’s not unusual to see a regular Porsche event up at Queensland Raceway with a huge variety of Porsche clubs that litter Queensland. Not to mention there are drivers in attendance from GT3 Cup and Improved Production.
Terry Knight was out with the Action Tyres GT3 which was looking very aggressive parked in the middle of the pits.
Of course on the other side of the spectrum were some slightly more casual looking Porsche’s. I love the Volks against the silk silver.
As you would expect however, not all Porsche drivers are as casual as their cars may look.
Just look at the cage setup in the back of this thing.
We have had an almost monsoonal season here in QLD over the last few weeks so it is almost surprising that Queensland Raceway isn’t under water. I would imagine this Porsche owner would be tapping very lightly on those large brakes coming into the first corner.
It’s good to see the wet weather didn’t drop any of the driver’s enthusiasm; it certainly looks like the driver of the Dellow Racing GT3 was giving it a good flog up the middle straight.
I can tell you it’s a nightmare working on your car while you are knee deep in puddles of water. I can’t imagine it would be too fun getting back into your tidy Porsche after lying on oil soaked ground for 10 minutes.
Chez also managed to spot this car that is somewhat reminiscent of one of the Prototype cars from Le Mans.
I’m sure this car would be entered in some very awesome events. The car is sponsored by MPAgroup.com.au which is one of Australia’s leading construction management firms, so there is some decent backing behind it.
The car definitely looks to be some serious business.
Carbon fibre dash anyone?
Of course, the event wasn’t filled will just brand new 911s. It’s good to see that a few 944 and 928 owners made it out for the day.
As well as some of the older 911s.
Quite a few of them in fact. I have to say these older models of the 911 are my favorite type of Porsche.
Quite an interesting line up; not something us drifters would normally see at Queensland Raceway.
This 911 looks fairly clean too. Perhaps a daily driver turn casual track car?
I would love to see this four battle it out for top place on the track.
I’ll leave you guys with an image of this stunning GT2, I would love to have something like this as my own private track hack… Maybe someday.
That’s all from Chez for now, but he has been showing us some amazing work so I will be getting much more content off him soon. Hopefully I will also head up with him next time he hits up an event like this.
