This is the Porsche 356 replica driven and built by Johan Dryselius from Sweden. He was competing in Cash Days at the SCC Event in Norway, but unfortunately torched his head on the first run. He still walked away with the quickest time for a car with the original type1 magnesium engine case, and and a prize from CSP – ‘The Magnesium Flash Award’, with a time of 9.98 @ 140mph.

Johan also holds the World Record for the world’s quickest in the VW Super 1600 Challenge PA Race (PA = Power Adder)! The class is for VW based air cooled 1600 engine with original bore, stroke length and valve size, with a best time of 9.46 @ 151mph.
