In Honor of Horst’s years of volunteer Instruction, friendship and exemplary character, the Track Team will be naming Horst Petermann as our 2016 Instructor of the Year. Horst has always set an example for us to live up to. He will be missed by us all.
I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Horst. I joined UCR in 2015 where I was introduced to Horst. He quickly became a mentor to me but more importantly, he became a friend. He will be missed. Rest in peace Horst.
I’m also saddened to hear about Horst. I didn’t know him very well but he was always most pleasant at the DE weekends. I was always so proud to be able to tell people that I’d been on the track with a fellow instructor who’d actually raced Porsche prototypes at Daytona in the ’60s.
Dave Osborne, bravo!. Great idea.
I’m not totally sure. Maybe someone can confirm this for me but I think this was Horst’s car back in the day. It’s always been one of my favourite vintage Porsche images. It was really the girl that caught my eye. I think I’d looked at the shot a hundred times before I noticed the Canadian flag on the hood !
