Despite a natural affinity for speed, veteran Porsche mechanic, principle test driver and factory racer Herbert Linge was a long-time campaigner for improved safety in motorsport.

In 1972 he introduced the safety car to Germany’s national racing scene, bringing first aid direct to the site of accidents. Ten years later he was awarded the Federal Order of Merit by the German government for his efforts.
