Class List for Rennsport Reunion 2018

The Porsche Rennsport Reunion 2018 will be staged September 27-30 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, California. Requests for entry to participate in Rennsport Reunion VI are now open.

As in the past five Porsche Rennsport 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 groundbreaking 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.

Last held at the Monterey Peninsula racetrack in 2015 and drawing nearly 60,000 visitors, Porsche Rennsport Reunion is the world’s largest gathering of vintage and recent Porsche race cars, as well as those who have designed, engineered, and driven them to victory in the world’s most famous sports car races. Hosted by Porsche Cars North America, Rennsport Reunion VI will again feature the widest variety of historic racing Porsche competition models in the company’s 70-year history.

  1. Hello
    I came from Rennsport V, I work for Porsche France, I am passionate, I would like to participate and help you organize this celebration !

  2. I was at 2015. THe entire event is sensory overload. It took me 2.5 of my three days to walk the paddock, and in the 12 months after I read articles about all the things I missed. But, the best part is the camraderie at the lunch tables. I’m from Chicago, and I sat with Connecticut, San Francisco, New York, and Texas Porsche fans and all were great people. If you have a bucket list, you need to make this one at the top.

  3. Steve McQueen showed what Porsche racing was about in the 1971 movie “LeMans”. I have been a fan ever since. Now, my 11 year old son has become a fan as well and we’ll be attending our first Rennsport in September. Needless to say, we hope to viscerally experience what only a 917 can provide.
