Porsche 917-021 A Perfect Day

This lovely video by Vimeo user Daniel Fery in Belgium will make us all wish we had the resources to obtain a Porsche 917. This isn’t a track test with a motoring hack of dubious fame doing his ‘piece to camera’. Instead, it’s a nicely shot narrative depicting the Porsche 917’s owner, Vincent Gaye loading the restored car into the truck and then taking his 917 to my favourite race track, Spa Francorchamps.

Some lovely engine note recordings, all set in the context of the picturesque Spa. Sit back, turn up the speakers. What’s not to like?

If you love the sound of the Cosworth V8 as much as the V12 Merlin, the smell of Jet A1 as much as Castrol R and admire the late Ray Hanna as much as Sir Stirling, you’ll find you’re both on the same page. Neill's love of art deco buildings means that his ideal home would be a brilliant white, 1930′s control tower in Southern France, with crisply mown grass, biplane parked on the driveway and a Ferrari 288GTO in the garage. This is something that those around him tolerate, though it does concern them from time to time.
