Australia’s first Porsche Rennsport Festival, coming in May

The 2013 Rennsport Motor Racing Festival Porsche extravaganza is coming to Australia for the first time ever next month. It will take place at Sydney Motorsport Park at Eastern Creek, showcasing various racing events and special shows and unique demonstrations.


For Porsche fans, this will be a must-see event. The Porsche Carrera Cup and Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge races will be the main event for the weekend-long festival, while other features will include historic demonstrations and unique Porsche races.

Taking place at the recently revamped Sydney Motorsport Park, previously called Eastern Creek Raceway, the Rennsport Festival will be able to make full use of the facilities on offer. This includes special features at the figure-8 circuit and skid pan, and even off-road demonstrations at the 4×4 track with the Porsche Cayenne.


For those who simply want to see some stunning Porsche vehicles, the weekend will also include the Porsche Concours d’Elegance and Porsche Show ‘n’ Shine. Here you will be able to get up close to a range of some of the world’s finest Porsches. Kevin Nicholls, Porsche Cars Australia marketing director, spoke about the event, saying,

“Porsche Rennsport Australia is shaping up as the must-attend event for all Porsche enthusiasts in 2013. With over 60 years of Porsche history in Australia we have a large customer and fan base to draw from.

“The cars, the people, the tales … the opportunity to be Porsche proud for an entire weekend and share a love of the brand will be on offer to all.”

As a condition of entry, a section of the general car park will be free for all Porsche owners – $5 otherwise – which means it will be a sight to see on its own. General admission ticket prices for the entire weekend cost $55 for adults and $5 for children.

The event will run on the weekend of May 25 and May 26. PerformanceDrive will be attending the event. Stay tuned for our full coverage.
