The Classics at the Castle Porsche Concours 2012 was staged Sunday, September 2nd on the grounds of Hedingham Castle, which is located in the village of Castle Hedingham in England.
The 6th annual Classics at the Castle Concours, limited to classic Porsches built from 1948 to 1973, celebrated the 40th anniversary of the epic 911 Carrera RS. The event celebrated this historic milestone with a parade of more than forty Carrera RS model types, plus a number of the subsequent RS models that followed.
In addition to this year’s 40th anniversary RS Carrera parade, organizers also coordinated a chronological parade of the various pre-74 production models that included a selection from each of the 356, 912, 914 and 911 types.
Significant Porsche race cars were also plentiful at the 2011 Classics at the Castle, including the Porsche 907 Longtail that Vic Elford and Jochen Neerpasch drove to victory at the 1968 24 Hours of Daytona, the ex-Richard Attwood / Hans Herrmann Team Salzburg Porsche 917K that won the 1970 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Martini Racing Porsche 917 LH, the 1973 Porsche 911 RSR ‘Mary Stuart’ Prototype and other fabulous Porsche RS and RSR variants.
