"If it feels slightly fearful and - wow,
I don't know if I can do this - you should probably do it."
- Magnus Walker
Passion, commitment and following your heart. That age old combination can drive one to do amazing things. Magnus Walker's passion for Porsche was ignited at the age of 10 while attending a London motor show in 1977. He came across a '77 Porsche 930 Martini Turbo at the show and the rest is history (by the way, Martini just so happens to be one of my favorite liveries in all of motorsport). That passion has driven him to become one of the world's most renowned Porsche restorers and enthusiasts.
I had the honor of hearing Magnus speak about his passion in-person at Porsche of the Village here in Cincinnati as part of a weekend of awesome events and activities leading up to the prestigious Ault Park Concours de'Élégance. There were a handful of Porsches from Bob Ingram's prestigious collection, including a Porsche 918 Spyder and Magnus' one and only 911 STR II below.
Thank you Ault Park Concours, Magnus Walker and Bob Ingram for an outstanding weekend!
