“Join two Porsche enthusiasts on the road to perfect vehicle control – a driving training with Porsche works driver Patrick Long. Their goal: complete a stage of the Tour de France Automobile of 1969. An homage to the legendary 911 R, which achieved an outstanding triumph in this popular rally event,”
