Pirelli - Where Car Passion Meets Art

Patrick Long, racing driver and co-founder of Luftgekühlt, talks about the show and his passion for cars. 

“I was motivated by the Ferry Porsche quote,” he began. “I looked around and could not quite find the car I dreamed of, so I decided to build it myself.”

Rewind a few years and Patrick discovered the need for a particular kind of Porsche show following the purchase of his own 1986 Porsche 911. “I started looking for events to attend and hang-out with fellow vintage enthusiasts to share my enthusiasm. But I found it challenging to become engaged with the existing events. I also struggled to get my wife or friends to accompany me as most shows were too auto-centric, often taking place in remote parking lots at 6am,” he recalled.
