1997 Porsche 993 Carrera 2S

PostPosted: Mon Oct 29, 2018 7:30 am    Post subject: Brecon Beacons in the 3.8 Reply with quote

Up at sunrise on the icy cold Brecon Beacons for one last run in the 3.8 before winter.

Planned out a route over dinner at the Felin Fach Griffin and had to scrape the windshield clear at 6:30am before heading out to crisscross the most talked about roads from the A4560 in the East onward to the Black Mountain Pass in the West. Managed to get back just in time for breakfast and out to do it all again at a slower pace once Wales had woken.

Loving this.... worship

Talk to us about that 3.8 then, what is the difference?, worth the extra cost at rebuild time?.

This is my back yard!
Surprised you didn't have a picture taken at the hairpin on the '69 with a touch of opposite lock going up the hill!

Looks like I should of posted an invite. Had not realised how many 993 owners were on the route. Surprised

Will try and write something on the 3.8 this weekend. I’ve put enough miles on it now to give it a fair appraisal. puh

Most definitely get there the night before. You’ll want to be out before the roads get busy. I’d have one eye on the temperature now as it was very cold, wouldn’t fancy being up there with icy patches on the road surface.
