Porsche Rennsport Reunion IV, at Laguna Seca

You have to agree that Porsche has heritage down to a tee. From Sunday drives, to Saturday races, to taking the kids to school, to the hard core collectors, even to museums around the world.
Between the 14th and 16th of October Porsche will be holding the fourth annual Rennsport Reunion at Mazda's famous Laguna Seca Raceway in California. The venue will support an authentic German biergarten as well as German food and a park atmosphere feel to it so they can step aside from the on track excitement and heat and have a full experience of the Porsche heritage.
CARS movie star Sally Carrera, the voice behind the Porsche in the movie, will be there for the kids to take photographs. There will also be activities from the Porsche Driving School to keep the adults out of trouble and hopefully getting people to sign up for their fantastic school, which I am planning to go to next year. Many more things like generations of Porsche racecars will be on display in the Paddock.
The planners of the event wanted to show the progression of the Porsche 911 model. So the club has assembled one car from each year, starting in 1965, when the 911 first appeared in theU.S., until today’s 2011 Porsche 911 GT2 RS.
I wish I could attend this amazing event and I hope that everyone that can go really takes everything in and see everything that Porsche has to offer.
