Porsche Rennsport returning to Australia

Porsche Australia will bring the Rennsport festival back to life next year, with a three-day event at Sydney Motorsport Park.

Porsche ran a one-off Rennsport festival at Sydney Motorsport Park back in 2013, and has now decided to bring the event back with a three-day celebration of the Porsche marque set to run from April 29 to May 1 next year.

The event will be headlined by the annual Carrera Cup Pro-Am, which was held at Phillip Island this year, as well as Porsche’s rolling museum.

The Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge will also race across the Rennsport weekend.

“There was never any doubt that we would continue the Rennsport concept in Australia,” said Porsche Cars Australia Managing Director Sam Curtis.

“It is immensely popular in North America and the inaugural Australian event was a resounding success. The popularity – both in participation and attendance – in 2013 along with the incredible feedback thereafter made our decision to repeat the event very easy.

“Porsche’s vast motor racing heritage and popularity in Australia allows us to hold such events, something that makes us unique in the market.

“Rennsport is a true celebration of the Porsche brand and its motor racing pedigree – past and present.”
