Legends Of Road And Track To Star At Festival Of Porsche

Some of the world’s fastest and most famous road-going sports cars and long-distance racing cars, spanning all eras from the glamorous 1950s to the high-tech 21st century, can be seen in action at the Festival of Porsche at Brands Hatch on Sunday 21 September.

This all-new event at the Kent circuit celebrates the moving masterpieces of the iconic German marque, but will appeal to lovers of all types of car with its high-octane mix of racing, parades, demonstrations, and off-track festivities.

The Festival of Porsche will be headlined by cars and drivers victorious at the world-famous Le Mans 24 Hours race, and by a number of rare and significant road and racing cars from the renowned Porsche Museum in Stuttgart. Guests of honour will include Derek Bell, MBE, who won Le Mans five times between 1975 and 1987, and 1970 Le Mans winner Richard Attwood.

Star cars will include the Porsche 356 of the 1950s, which lead to the 1963 introduction of the now-legendary Porsche 911; the 1987 Porsche 962, which scored Porsche’s seventh consecutive victory at Le Mans that year with Derek Bell in the driver line-up; and the Porsche 911 GT1-98, which scored a 1-2 at Le Mans in 1998.

Bringing the inspirational Porsche story bang up to date, the Festival will also feature the very latest plug-in hybrid 918 Spyder super sportscar, and a showroom example of the innovative new 919 LMP1 sports prototype racer with its battery-based hybrid system, as driven at Le Mans this year by former F1 star Mark Webber.

The Festival will also feature a static display and track parade to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 911 Turbo, with 74 examples of the model from 1974 to the present day. Other cherished cars will be polished to perfection and shown off by their owners in a Concours Display.

More Porsches still will be driven hard and fast in a full programme of racing on the challenging Brands Hatch circuit, with competitive events for the Porsche Club Championship, Porsche Club Speed Championship, and BRSCC Porsche Championship.

Off-track attractions will include trade stands, question-and-answer sessions with Porsche personalities, a fun fair, and live music.
The inaugural Festival of Porsche is organised by circuit owner MSV in association with Porsche Club GB and supported by Porsche Cars GB.
