Magnus Walker drives his dream car for the first time; a stopwatch helps Porsche to victory at Le Mans in 1977; the only 911 on Norfolk Island; plus: a “burning” race car—the “Fetzenflieger”—and the extraordinary life story of Herbert Linge. One-of-a-kind personalities and stories in 9:11 Magazine.
Back in 1977, a Porsche 911 Turbo in Martini design conquered the heart of ten-year-old Magnus Walker. It was the beginning of a lifelong passion. Forty-one years later he drives precisely the same car—in his hometown of Sheffield.
At the 1977 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, every minute counts: Jürgen Barth drives the final lap with a stopwatch on the steering wheel of his Porsche 936/77 Spyder to avoid crossing the finish line before 4 pm.
The only 911
At a mere 35 km², Norfolk Island in the vast Pacific is one of the smallest islands in the world. There are few roads, a speed limit of 50 km/h, and... the only Porsche 911 Targa within 1,400 kilometers.
Motor racing was everything to Otto Mathé. In the 1950s, he sped from one victory to another—in the legendary Fetzenflieger (“tatter-flinger”). The name said it all: the cloth covers of the engine occasionally caught fire.
