| 7 Oct 2011

More than 350 competition Porsches are set to line up from 14-16 October for the fourth Porsche Rennsport Reunion at Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, California.The first Porsche 550 coupé to race at Le Mans and a 1959 718 RSK Spyder will star alongside such Stuttgart greats as an ex-Martini racing team 917K and ‘Moby Dick’ – the Group 5 racer that many fans consider to be the ultimate 935 variant – for the circuit’s inaugural hosting of the triennial Rennsport celebration.These icons will be joined by the 16-cylinder prototype CanAm racer from the Porsche Museum and a pair of seminal examples of the 911: the 1973 RSR that won the last Targa Florio and the 1969 Tour de France-winning 911R.Complementing the track action will be the 800-strong club turnout – led by Porsche Club America – for what the organisers are hoping will be the largest-ever single marque display at Laguna.There will also be a pitlane concours and numerous Porsche celebrities will attend, including Norbert Singer – the only Porsche race engineer involved in each of the company’s 16 Le Mans 24 Hours wins.Adding to the festivities will be a beer garden – complete with live music and authentic German food – and a screening of the classic Steve McQueen film Le Mans.Tickets cost from $25 (Friday admission) to $60 (three-day admission).
