To honor the upcoming Rennsport Reunion, Porsche has released a great new video which talks about the history of the reunion and the legacy of the Porsche Brand. 

legendary racecar driver and six time winner of the Rolex 24hr at Daytona,  Hurley Haywood – who was recently honored with the Limited Edition B59 911, discusses Porsche’s motorsports activities over the years and their importance to the brand.

When Porsche Cars North America held the first Rennsport Reunion in the summer of 2001 at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut, it didn’t take long for the participants to realize they were sharing in something extraordinary. Subsequent Rennsports, II and III, were both held at Daytona International Speedway in Florida and built upon the original premise, remarkable racecars reunited with their equally remarkable drivers.

Porsche loyalists should find their way to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca October 14-16 for the Porsche Rennsport Reunion IV.  The event makes its first West Coast appearance and brings together some of Porsche’s most historic racing models as well as featuring the North American debut of the 2012 Porsche 911.
