Coffee and cake? We prefer Donuts. In the street. So let's wait and see what we can expect this weekend at the 77th edition of Goodwood's high-frequency Members' Meeting. One thing's for sure: On the occasion of its 50th birthday, the Porsche 917 arrived with no fewer than five models, including the 917 with chassis number 001, which was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 1969 and only recently restored the Porsche Classic to its original condition. Richard "Dickie" Attwood", Hans Hermann and Mark Webber, experts in their field, take the wheel. Makes sense. After all, 001 is not only supposed to live high on this day, but also for a very long time afterwards.
