Tue, 08 Mar 2011

Porsche has confirmed that its Rennsport Reunion IV, sponsored by Porsche Cars North America, will feature three days of the German marque's historic race-cars at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, Calif. This is the first time the Rennsport reunion will be held on the West Coast, with Rennsport Reunion IV scheduled for Oct. 14-16, 2011.

“The Rennsport name has become a staple fixture for international collectors and racers over the past 10 years by providing a one-of-a-kind gathering to Porsche fans,” said Detlev von Platen, president and CEO of Porsche Cars North America. “Being that this is the first time a Rennsport will be staged on the West Coast, enthusiasts [there] will now have an opportunity to participate and immerse themselves in this rare Porsche experience.”

The celebration will feature on-track races and an open paddock for visitors to interact with the car owners, drivers and machines.

“For sports-car racing enthusiasts and Porsche fans in particular, Porsche Rennsport Reunion IV will provide a sensory experience unlike any other event,” said Gill Campbell, CEO/general manager of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. “With the event being held just every three years and previously only on the East Coast, you can be assured that Porsche Cars North America is going all out to bring a phenomenal show in October to the Monterey Peninsula.”

As well as the vintage celebration, the Pirelli Drivers Cup will be part of the weekend and will feature 996 and 997 GT3 Cup race cars from 2000 through 2011 competing on-track.

Also, the Porsche Race Car Classic, a gathering to honor Porsche's most significant race cars and pilots from 1950 to 1965, will be held at the Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley on Oct. 16. About 200 Porsche race cars from 1950 to 1965 will be on display; all funds raised at the event will be used to support lung cancer research. For more about the event, visit
