Porsche Cars North America and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca have announced the race groupings and competition applicant information for Rennsport VI, the four-day “family reunion” scheduled for September 27-30, 2018 at the Monterey Peninsula circuit.
As in the past five 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 magnificent 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.
Porsche Rennsport Reunion brings together the world’s largest gathering of vintage and recent Porsche racecars, as well as those who have designed, engineered, and driven them to victory in the world’s most famous sports car races. Hosted by PCNA, Rennsport Reunion VI will again feature the widest variety of historic racing Porsche competition models in the company’s 70-year history.
