The Porsche Rennsport Reunion 2018 will be staged September 27-30 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California. Requests for entry to participate in Rennsport Reunion VI are now open.
As in the past five Porsche Rennsport Reunions, cars will be grouped by the period in which they raced so that enthusiasts can focus on the different motorsports eras, while also maximizing the number of cars in each class. Fans will have full access to both the paddock and trackside locations to see and hear everything from early 356 sports cars, through the groundbreaking 917, to the latest Le Mans winning 919 LMP1 Hybrid — and almost every number near and dear to Porsche enthusiasts in between: 550, 904, 908, 962 and of course, 911 and 935.
Last held at the Monterey Peninsula racetrack in 2015 and drawing nearly 60,000 visitors, Porsche Rennsport Reunion is the world’s largest gathering of vintage and recent Porsche race cars, as well as those who have designed, engineered, and driven them to victory in the world’s most famous sports car races. Hosted by Porsche Cars North America, Rennsport Reunion VI will again feature the widest variety of historic racing Porsche competition models in the company’s 70-year history.
