Roland Linder, a professional driving instructor, worked for Porsche Belgium and was part of the team that won the Le Mans 24hrs in 1968 and 1969. He moved to the United States in 1979, where he continued his career as a Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) pro racing manager and owner of a sport car driving school.
On Thursday, Aug. 4 Linder rolled in Polk Life Care with his F40 LM, a red Ferrari vintage race car. Adult day care participants viewed his car and its motor and watched a video of Linder racing his Ferrari.
As Linder drove away, Hans Leudi said, “I enjoyed that a lot. He is a talented man.”
