The Porsche Club GB will host the Porsche festival 2014 event at Brands Hatch, Kent, on 21 September, featuring racing, displays and demonstrations of both classic and contemporary Porsche sports cars
Organised by circuit owner MSV in association with Porsche Club GB and supported by Porsche Cars GB, the Brands Hatch Festival of Porsche will be the Club’s leading national event for 2014.
In addition to a variety of on-track action, the venue is expected to be surrounded by all types and ages of Porsche, from the 356 of the 1950s to the very latest plug-in hybrid 918 Spyder super sportscar.
Porsche 911 Turbo 40 year celebrations
The Brands Hatch Festival of Porsche coincides with the 40th anniversary of the 911 Turbo, and a special celebration forms part of the event. A parade of over 60 examples of the 911 Turbo from the 1970s right up to the present day will take to the track on the Sunday afternoon.
Porsche endurance racers at Brands Hatch
To support Porsche’s return to the LMP1 class at Le Mans this year, the Porsche Museum will be showcasing a number of its jewels from the world-renowned exhibition in Stuttgart. The 1987 Porsche 962 and the 911 GT1 from 1998 will line-up in a pit lane display, with other iconic racers joining them.
In addition to famous cars, a number of personalities also take an active part in the event. Leading the on-track action will be former Porsche works race drivers and Le Mans winners Derek Bell, MBE, and Richard Attwood.
Porsche centre Restoration challenge 2014
The Festival will also host the finale of a national contest organised by Porsche Cars GB that challenged Porsche Centres to undertake a Classic Restoration project. For 2014, with the 911 Turbo celebrating its 40th anniversary and the launch of the new 911 Targa, Centres are restoring any Classic Porsche model that is either turbo-charged, a Targa or both. Including front-engined turbo models such as 924 and 944.
Porsche racing action
Race fans will enjoy a full on-track programme including the Porsche Club GB Porsche Club Championship, Porsche Club Speed Championship and BRSCC Porsche Championship. There will also be a Concours Display for cherished cars, and extra off-track attractions including trade stands, a fun fair and live music.
Ragnar Schulte, General Manager, Marketing, Porsche Cars GB, commented; “The enthusiasm and passion for Porsche at this event will excite everyone who attends, whether or not you are a Club member, a Porsche owner or just someone who loves cars.”
