Castle Combe Autumn Classic

Recommended Posts

Five 993s were amongst a strong Porsche Club GB presence at the Autumn Classic on Saturday October 5th 2019 .. strangely I only took one Porsche image, might have been snapped at the Garden Party too? I'll have to check .. don't think so, the RS alike there had headlamp washer delete .. ;(
