Race Entry Requests Opens Feb. 9 for Porsche Rennsport Reunion V
Porsche Run Groups Announced for September 25-27

MONTEREY, Calif., February 6, 2015 — Requests for entry to participate in what is considered to be the world’s greatest gathering of Porsche race cars — Porsche Rennsport Reunion V — opens online February 9 at www.MazdaRaceway.com. The event returns to the scenic Monterey coastline and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca September 25-27.

 

Hosted by Porsche Cars North America, Rennsport Reunion V will, once again, bring together an extraordinary gathering of significant Porsche vintage and current race cars, as well those who have designed, engineered, and driven them to victory in the world’s most famous sports car races. The three-day program of on-track competition will be complemented by autograph sessions, a Concours d’Elegance and special activities celebrating each of the six decades of legendary Porsche race cars.

 

“The Rennsport Reunion V questions began even before Rennsport Reunion IV ended,” said Detlev von Platen, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America. “The overwhelming passion shown by our owners, fans and enthusiasts over the past three years is the reason we are back, this time celebrating not only our past accomplishments at the 24 Hours of Le Mans but our future at the famous circuit with the current 919 Hybrid LMP1 racer.”

 

Car owners and drivers are encouraged to apply for the limited number of grid spots when entry registration opens Feb. 9. “Entries will be accepted through mid-May, wherein committee members will review and start the process of accepting cars,” said Gill Campbell, CEO/General Manager of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. “All cars will be reviewed for their historical significance and authenticity to ensure the highest quality cars are present.”

 

Complementing the bustling paddock will be an expansive Porsche corral organized by the Porsche Club of America. Vendors selling a variety of automobile related memorabilia and a Bier Garten to provide guests with authentic German food and refreshments are all part of the Rennsport Reunion experience.
