Early in January I got a note from Brian Harper asking me about the Winter Marathon rally. Brian is the Deputy Editor of the Driving Section of the National Post, a major Canadian newspaper. Brian said that he was going to be driving a Porsche 356 in this year’s Winter Marathon rally. We exchanged a couple of emails about the rally and Brian said that he would send me the story about his participation in the rally after he returned.

As he said he would do, Brian sent me a link to his story about the great opportunity that he had to take part in this classic European rally. Please click on the following link to connect to Brian’s story:
Brian told me about Harper’s Rule of Infrequent Competition , so I new what his approach to the rally would be. What is not said in Brian’s story is that the Porsche 356 that they were driving was a car that came out of a museum for this rally. So this was not a “driver” Porsche; it was a “museum” Porsche, so I am sure that there was a great deal of extra pressure not to damage the car. This would be even a greater challenge in the weather conditions that they had.
Enjoy Brian’s story!
