This year’s theme, “Marque of Champions,” will bring together a number of racers who helped Porsche achieve its history of success: Hurley Haywood, the most successful American endurance driver ever; Brian Redman, co-creator of Porsche Rennsport Reunion and racing champion extraordinaire; Vic Elford, who is celebrating the 50th anniversary of his legendary 1968 season; Norbert Singer, lead engineer known as the father of the Porsche 962 as well as the man behind the Carrera GT V10 engine; 1989 Le Mans winner and VM columnist Jochen Mass; and Jacky Ickx, six-time Le Mans winner. In total, 50-plus legendary drivers will be on hand, signing autographs and making appearances on and off the track.
Salinas, CA — Championship-winning Porsche race cars, the engineers who designed them, and the men who drove them to victories around the world will be reunited on the track Sept. 27-30 for Porsche Rennsport Reunion VI at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.
Roughly 250 Porsche race cars will compete in seven different classes, representing virtually every Porsche racing model — from the 356 through the 917 to modern 911 GT cars, and many more. Plus, the sold-out Porsche Corrals will be chock-full of nearly 1,000 examples of virtually every production model made.
Complementing Porsche Park in the Paddock will be the Chopard Heritage Display. While these invitation-only cars are not on the racing grid, they are significant examples of Porsche racing history — each chosen for its contribution to Porsche’s racing successes, road car engineering and performance superiority.
The cars range from the sleek 1951 356 Gmünd Coupe that was driven around the Montlhéry banking for 72 hours at 94.66mph to a new world record, through the decades to the more modern-era 2009 997 RS “Art Car” that competed in the American Le Mans Series in 2009 and 2010 before its last race at the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans where it finished 6th in class and 18th overall.
