The 2013 edition of the Classics at the Castle Porsche Concours will be staged Sunday, September 8th on the scenic grounds of Hedingham Castle, situated in the village of Castle Hedingham in England. This year’s event for classic Porsches built from 1948 to 1973 will celebrate 50 years of the 911.
In recent years the presentation of Porsche at Classics at the Castle has become one of the foremost single marque classic car shows in Europe. Every year Porsche enthusiasts travel to Hedingham Castle from all over the World to enjoy Stuttgart’s finest sports and race cars with fellow enthusiasts. Last year’s event saw the debut of the ‘Parade’ format, which this year will focus on the historic evolution of the 911 over the past 50 years. Featuring guest drivers John Fitzpatrick and Bob Garretson, a procession of Special Cars will be driven up the hill, at sensible speed, but with lots of noise to arrive at the event backdrop by the medieval castle keep, where there will be a commentary about each car.
This year’s 911/50 Parade will include both production and competition models and a group of modified R Group and Outlaw examples. While there will be a number of slots for each group, the intention is to include one of each production model variant plus a number of notable competition 911s within the line-up.
As in previous years, a gathering of as many 356, 912, 914 and pre-1974 911 Porsche cars as it is possible to see in one place in the UK, will support the Parade.
