I’ve you’ve never attended, this is one event not to miss … if you have attended you’re already planning to go!
The Porsche corral is available for those who drive their Porsches - it is the way to go, purchase parking when booking tickets … it fills up so buy tickets early. Hotel rooms get booked quickly, so make reservations early. Salinas, CA is less expensive than Monterey and is convenient for access to the Laguna Seca/Mazda Raceway.
Press Release: PCNA President and CEO Klaus Zellmer told us over a year ago that Rennsport Reunion VI (RRVI) was already scheduled for 2018, but wouldn’t give any other details. Well, it’s official now: The sixth Rennsport Reunion will remain at Laguna Seca and will be held September 27-30, 2018. PCA will take part in and help facilitate the festivities as it has in past Rennsport gatherings.
For those who may not know what, exactly, is a Rennsport Reunion, picture this: tens of thousands of car enthusiasts and hundreds of Porsches of all types on display and racing on track. Among the thousands of people scattered about the infield are famous race car drivers, engineers, designers, company executives — basically the who’s-who of the Porsche world.
PCA will provide a hospitality tent with refreshments and presentations by Porsche insiders for members in attendance. More information will become available in the near future.
At Rennsport Reunion V, PCA member-owned Porsches in attendance topped 1,300. PCA Club Racing contributed to the racing with its own run group, named the Sholar-Friedman Cup after PCA founder Bill Sholar and PCA Club Racing founder Allen Friedman.
The first Rennsport Reunion was held in 2001 at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut, followed by the second and third at Daytona International Speedway in 2004 and 2007. The fourth and fifth Rennsports took place at Laguna Seca in 2011 and 2015, both of which attracted 40,000+ spectators.
“Choosing the Monterey Peninsula once again for our unique Porsche family reunion builds upon what we learned from previous Rennsport Reunions,” said Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America. “We had close to 60,000 fans, enthusiasts and owners come through the gates of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca to celebrate with us in 2015, and California’s picturesque central coast provides an ideal backdrop. The Golden State as a whole has always been like a second home to Porsche.”
