Richard is no stranger to the 928 having been one of the drivers of the Brumos 928S that competed in the 1984 Daytona 24 Hours race.
The 928 returned to Silverstone for the final race of the season. The constantly changing weather made choosing the correct set up of the car a distinct challenge. After a damp qualifying session Richard secured 8th place on the starting grid but a standing start did not play to the 928's advantage, losing a couple of places early in the race. However, Richard delivered progressively quicker laps, deftly navigating his way through the pack to bring the car home in 3rd place overall. The car will now go on display at the NEC Classic Motorshow between 10-12 November.
On a cold and misty September morning in Belgium, Richard Attwood once again took to the track in the 928 for the penultimate race of the season. Spa Francorchamps is one the world's iconic race circuits, combining high speed straights and challenging corners including the legendary Eau Rouge. After the qualifying session that was cut short, Richard took to the circuit mid-field amongst a larger than usual closed-wheel grid of over 60 cars from various series. Both car and driver were pushed hard over the two races with Richard battling to finish in 4th place in the 70's Roadsport category and 18th overall.
On a sunny Sunday morning at Brands Hatch, Tom Bradshaw from Road and Race Restorations took to the wheel of the 928, standing in for Richard Attwood. A former
Cadwell Park is a demanding race circuit featuring a narrow track, with many twists and turns that push the brakes and suspension of any car to the limit.
Despite the size and weight of the 928, Richard Attwood pushed the car to the limits on one of the hottest weekends of the year so far, putting in a strong performance across two days and getting faster with every lap. The lighter cars in the race were always going to have the upper hand at this circuit but Richard brought the car home in a very respectable 9th place overall and 2nd in class.
The 928 took to the track in anger for the first time on Saturday 20 May. Having only tested the car for the first time the night before, Richard Attwood managed to qualify in 9th position from a grid of 35 cars.
After a delayed start due to heavy rain, Richard took advantage of the natural balance of the 928’s transaxle layout, battling to 4th position in just one lap. After a close battle with a 911 SC and a nail-biting finish, Richard brought the 928 home in 3rd place overall and 1st in its class.

* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From 01 September 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from 01 September 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
