    Motor sport status quo

    Something's kinda niggling at the back of my mind...

    Shouldn't Porsche take motorsport just a little more seriously..?  I mean, it's a bit cheeky claiming motorsport success as a marque when you're highest profile racing is done racing against yourself, isn't it?

    Great to hear that they are re-entering LMP1 at Le Mans, but even that doesn't really pit them against who they should be prepared to go up against, does it, i.e. Ferrari on the big stage?

    What would you guys like to see them enter..?

     Here we go again!

    Porsche will be back at the top rung of sports-car racing. That is Porsche spiritual home.

    Porsche will face off against Peugeot, Audi, Nissan and Aston Martin (there may be others)

    On the other hand, Porsche does not have a history of F1 racing.Apart from the successful role of engine supplier to McLaren, it doesn't have a glorious history as a F1 manufacturer. The truth is that Porsche has hardly ever been interested in F1. 

    Long may it stay that way!

    Easy! Just get yourself born in time to go along to see Porsche's own F1 car race in the Monaco Grand Prix in 1961.  Smiley
