I am 31 years old, started racing in 2006 with my 931 (924 Turbo). The car was quick but much too slow to compete with the rest of the field. This year, at the Hockenheim race Jochen from "Landsharks" pointed my attention to the Porsche 928. I then bought a black 928 S4 on eBay. The car's interior was in very bad shape and so I could buy it for 3.5K EURO. A bargain! I then invested approx 7K EURO to fix all problems and paint it in Carrera-white.
Another 4-5K EURO were spent for additional stuff like oiling upgrade, camshafts, non-slip diff and all the necessary FIA approved stuff (required because the race series is a official FIA event).
