Richard is no stranger to the 928 having been one of the drivers of the Brumos 928S that competed in the 1984 Daytona 24 Hours race.
The 928 returned to Silverstone for the final race of the season. The constantly changing weather made choosing the correct set up of the car a distinct challenge. After a damp qualifying session Richard secured 8th place on the starting grid but a standing start did not play to the 928's advantage, losing a couple of places early in the race. However, Richard delivered progressively quicker laps, deftly navigating his way through the pack to bring the car home in 3rd place overall. The car will now go on display at the NEC Classic Motorshow between 10-12 November.
On a cold and misty September morning in Belgium, Richard Attwood once again took to the track in the 928 for the penultimate race of the season. Spa Francorchamps is one the world's iconic race circuits, combining high speed straights and challenging corners including the legendary Eau Rouge. After the qualifying session that was cut short, Richard took to the circuit mid-field amongst a larger than usual closed-wheel grid of over 60 cars from various series. Both car and driver were pushed hard over the two races with Richard battling to finish in 4th place in the 70's Roadsport category and 18th overall.
On a sunny Sunday morning at Brands Hatch, Tom Bradshaw from Road and Race Restorations took to the wheel of the 928, standing in for Richard Attwood. A former
Cadwell Park is a demanding race circuit featuring a narrow track, with many twists and turns that push the brakes and suspension of any car to the limit.
Despite the size and weight of the 928, Richard Attwood pushed the car to the limits on one of the hottest weekends of the year so far, putting in a strong performance across two days and getting faster with every lap. The lighter cars in the race were always going to have the upper hand at this circuit but Richard brought the car home in a very respectable 9th place overall and 2nd in class.
The 928 took to the track in anger for the first time on Saturday 20 May. Having only tested the car for the first time the night before, Richard Attwood managed to qualify in 9th position from a grid of 35 cars.
After a delayed start due to heavy rain, Richard took advantage of the natural balance of the 928’s transaxle layout, battling to 4th position in just one lap. After a close battle with a 911 SC and a nail-biting finish, Richard brought the 928 home in 3rd place overall and 1st in its class.

*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
