Two New Porsche Articles in time for 2015 Rennsport Reunion V

Bridgehampton Trans Am - June 23, 1968

Above: EXCELLENCE magazine (current November 2015 issue) has William Edgar’s 5-page feature article “Heavyweight Lightweight” about Bob Bailey’s Porsche 911L Under-2-Liter SCCA Trans-Am race car that first owner Bailey raced in 1968-69 and today, after assorted homes and restorations, owns for a second time and road rallies with his son Cannon Bailey.

Below: VINTAGE MOTORSPORT magazine (current Sep/Oct 2015 issue) has Edgar’s 6-page feature article “The General Kilpatrick Speedster Lives On” about Ernie Nagamatsu’s “Number Seven” 1958 Kilpatrick Porsche Speedster that survived 55,000 miles of road racing while owned and driven by California Air National Guard Brigadier General James R. Kilpatrick.  Purchased in 1997 by Nagamatsu and restored to period racing specs and livery, the Speedster has returned to competition in today’s historic road racing.

[Update: Both of these Porsches were at Rennsport Reunion V, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, Monterey, the last weekend in September 2015. The 911L was displayed in the Heritage Tent. The Kilpatrick Speedster was raced on track by owner Ernie Nagamatsu.]
