Tuthill Porsches on Safari

Eight Porsche 911s from the Tuthill Porsche team, including a car for 2011 winner Björn Waldegård, will head the field for this year’s East African Safari Classic (November 21-29).

In a total entry of 60 cars, half the field is made up of 911s.

After winning the last Classic Safari in a Tuthill 911 Wäldegård will bid for another win and will be joined in the team by fellow rallying legend Stig Blomqvist. British drivers Steve Troman and Richard Jackson will also drive Tuthill-prepared 911s.

“This has been our busiest year to date and preparations for this year’s Safari have been a massive undertaking,” said Richard Tuthill. More than 100 people will be in the Tuthill squad, which shipped seven 40-foot containers by sea to Kenya.
