News reached DSC overnight of the passing of renowned photographer and motorsport author Ulli Upietz.
Perhaps best known for his annual ‘Porsche Sport’ yearbooks, produced via a close relationship with the marque, Ulli and his ‘Gruppe C Motorsport’ publishing house have produced dozens of high quality books which adorn the bookshelves of enthusiasts worldwide.
It is entirely appropriate that the most recent edition of ‘Porsche Sport’, indeed its 25th anniversary edition, was dedicated to the series’ founder.
He is survived by his three sons. Bjoern, Sven and Tim all of whom are fully involved with Gruppe C Motorsport.
Our deepest condolences to them for the loss of their beloved dad.
