Which one?  Guess: a 962R?

nah, surely the GT1???

I saw it at spa one year (1999 tour auto)... underwhelming, but nice.

Ah, yes, I was thinking that there were more than 1 GT1, but there's only 1 roadgoing version.

Well there is more than 1 roadgoing GT1, but this variant only the sole example.

There is a roadgoing Porsche, 1 of 1, which will be in Australia in time for this event. Do not know if it will be attending Clipsal though. Pretty special vehicle, has been here before. Its attendance will probably decide if I make the trip to Adelaide or not.
Porsches will not be here in time, looks like I may be staying in NSW for a little while then.

Now it's grid guys for Clipsal


    * From: Sunday Mail (SA)

GRID guys could make a return to pit lane at next year's Clipsal 500 event - and part-time model and motorsport fan Paul Siapin, 20, says he would love the opportunity to be one of them.

While scantily-clad grid girls are synonymous with the high-octane sport, the SA Motor Sport Board is considering reinstating male counterparts, who made a brief appearance nine years ago.

"To be a grid guy would be great. It would be great to be close to the action and mixing with the drivers, and all the grid girls," Mr Siapin said.

It's a move the burgeoning number of female racing fans would be sure to appreciate.

Last year 90,000 women attended the four-day event, representing 33 per cent of all ticket sales, compared to 27 per cent in 2004.

Grid guys were introduced at Melbourne's Grand Prix in 2008, a first for Formula One.

Event publicity manager Mike Drewer said grid guys first appeared in 2001 at the request of celebrity race driver Jill Johnson, wife of legend Dick Johnson.

"So it has been done before and we are certainly looking at it again," Mr Drewer said.
