"Uncle" Walter can't make the party.
In this year's 24 hour Rennen at the 'Ring, Porsche will be running what they say is a stock 997 GT3 RS. OK, it's stripped, with a different springs, slick tires, a cage and modified electronics, but never mind all that, the cool thing was going to be the return of Walter Röhrl to a major racing event.
Sadly he had to drop out. No official reason given but it is said that after the recent VLN shakedown race, it was realized he was just too exhausted by his stint. Time waits for no one, even legends like Röhrl.
Cheers from all of us Walter, you still are the patron saint of tracktards the world over!
