Porsche will once again be hosting Rennsport Reunion VI in Monterrey California at the famous Laguna Seca Raceway on September 27-30, 2018.
Rennsport is held every 4 years and is certainly the greatest collection of Porsche automobiles in the entire world. The Porsche factory brings in almost it’s entire museum of historic race cars and collector vehicles as well as many private owners throughout the world. The format at Rennsport is to also RACE these vehicles in various classes against similar vehicles. It is quite something to see a 550 spyder worth
$5,000,000 tearing around the course with abandon.
Not only does Porsche and many private owners, bring their cars for some exercise, but the event is also a collection of the drivers that piloted those cars in their era. Porsche invites all their factory drivers, past and present, to participate in the event and drive those vintage cars in the various categories.
Of course there are the vendors and the spectators and the souvenirs and the wine and the food that make it a well rounded event, but it is the only automobile event I am aware of where the spectators can touch and get up close to some of these incredible historic vehicles and the drivers that made history.
Rennsport also arranges all the spectator vehicles in parking lots according to model type, which also provides quite to array of colors and variations by the hundreds.
The weather at that time of year on the Monterrey peninsula is fabulous as is the terrific driving along the California coast. There is a group leaving Winnipeg with their Porsches to once again take in the event and spend a great week driving and getting saturated with Porsche everything. It is the best Porsche event one could ever attend and certainly not to be missed by any Porsche fan.
