    Well spotted Roger, some of the landscape has grown a little in 37 years.

    It is time to share some of the Porsche photos and starting out with the oldest Porsche racing at Laguna Seca.
    The beautiful 1954 Porsche 356 entered by Australian, Ron Goodman.
    Seen here as it exits the Corkscrew # 23 beside a 1962 356B # 491.
