You’ve got to admire someone who loves going fast and has such a passion for life. Torah Bright, the Australian snowboarder who is about to represent Australia at the Sochi Winter Olympics, is a keen motorista and spoke recently about her passion for Porsches.
My dad and I share a love of cars and car racing. As a kid I begged him to take me driving, and some days after church he’d take me to a dirt road and teach me how to drive. It was the big family Nissan Patrol in those days. In recent years, my brother Ben helped him buy a Porsche. We’re both Porsche fanatics. Dad has an old Porsche 928 and I have a Porsche Cayenne. I wish it was a race car, but I have to have something a little more functional for my adventures in the mountains.
