Bud Moeller let us put a camera on his Barrichello F1 Clienti car while he was at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca last week. This one is of Bud doing a shakedown lap after being rolled out. We wanted to show off just a tease and take you on a shakedown lap with our friend and regular Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion Participant Bud Moeller and his F2003 GA chassis #228 Formula 1 Clienti car which was originally driven by Rubens Barrichello. It was a rare privilege to ride along with Bud, who was having so much fun driving his newest F1 car.
If you are a Porsche enthusiast, mark your calendar for the weekend of October 14-16 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. You’ll see an unprecedented gathering of significant Porsche vintage and modern race cars, along with meeting those who have driven them to victory in the world’s most famous sports car races, for the extraordinary Porsche Rennsport Reunion IV.
Sponsored by Porsche Cars North America, Porsche Rennsport Reunion makes its first appearance on the west coast. Make your plans now to immerse yourself in what will be a truly memorable weekend dedicated to Porsche’s legendary motorsports heritage.
“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 will now have an opportunity to participate and immerse themselves in this rare Porsche experience.”
Porsche Rennsport Reunion IV will assemble the wide variety of Porsche’s most historic racing cars. This includes models like the nimble 550 Spyder of the mid-‘50s to the mighty 917 and 956/962 of the ‘70s and ‘80s to the highly successful RS Spyder of the last decade. Special tribute will be paid to the numerous racing versions of the Porsche 911 and their countless victories on the dawn of what will become another milestone of this iconic sports car from Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen.
