To make the event even more unique, the car park for the spectators was divided up into two section, one of which was exclusive for Porsche vehicle owners. This meant the car park itself was worthy of a browse, with some very cool models.

The highlight to the weekend was of course the track driving events. With the sounds of fine-tuned 911s of all makes and models blasting down the main straight, it was a case of sensory overload.

And that’s before the incredible Porsche 956C ex-Le Mans car comes out, showing everyone how it’s done. Even standing next to it, you can feel its imposing presence.

It’s powered by a 2.65-litre twin-turbo flat six engine producing 463kW at 8200rpm and 600Nm at 5000rpm. With a kerb weight of just 840kg, it’s no wonder it can hit a top speed of 355km/h.
