Daytona International Speedway hosts unprecedented gathering of Porsches


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla..(Nov. 2, 2007) – Cruising the History of Porsche Car Display in the infield at Daytona International Speedway, Bob Viertel and wife Debbie of Lakeland found it hard to take it all in.


“If you’re into Porches, this is sensory overload,” he said.  “This is my second Rennsport and they just keep getting better.”


Sponsored by Porsche Cars North America and organized by Brian Redman’s Intercontinental Events, Inc., Porsche Rennsport Reunion is held every three years and brings together an unprecedented gathering of significant Porsche vintage and current racecars and famous Porsche race drivers – this year at the historic “World Center of Racing.”


Ditto the Viertel’s sentiments said Barry and Kathy Hurchalla of Vero Beach.  “We’re having fun.  There’s so much to do.  This is great.”

In addition to on-track competition, additional events include a street car lapping session, literature, toy, and memorabilia swap meet, Porsche model car contest and a special autograph session with Porsche drivers including Hurley Haywood, Derek Bell, Vic Elford, Brian Redman, Arie Luyendyk, David Hobbs and Elliott Forbes-Robinson.

While thousands of fans ventured from display to display, taking in the history and prestige of the Porsche, Bill Myers of Dayton, Ohio and Bob McIntyre Wilmington, N.C., settled in the Nextel FANZONE to soak up the Reunion.  Said Myers, “Just sitting here listening to the cars go around this track is great.  I came a long way just for this and it’s worth the trip.  What a great time.”
