Mark Sumpter has lived and breathed Porsche road and race cars for 30 years. In that time Mark has established one of the UK’s leading independent specialists, Paragon Porsche, while racing – and winning – in all manner of 911s from British GT, Porsche Club Championship and the 2-Litre Cup. 

Mark joins Andy & Lee to tell us his incredible story of  story of how 2CV racing led to setting up one of the most respected independent Porsche dealerships in the UK. We learn how Paragon has developed from a village Petrol station, selling petrol and potatoes, to now dealing in arguably the best prepared used Porsches you can buy. We also discover how Mark’s racing career started with racing 2CV and VW Beetles, culminating in winning championships in nearly every generation of 911.
