Rennsport Reunion 7
Published in the June 2023 issue of “Die Porsche Kassette”
If you've ever dreamed about attending the largest gathering of Porsche racecars and meeting the legendary drivers and engineers who made the marque, your chance is coming up at the end of September 2023.
Rennsport Reunion 7 will take place September 28 through October 1, 2023 at the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey California.
This year the theme for the Seventh Rennsport Reunion is: “Icons of Porsche”. The title refers to the talented people who have driven Porsche to success for the past 75 years!
2023 marks Porsche's 75th anniversary, setting the stage for a celebration of unprecedented fanfare for Porsche enthusiasts.
Over the course of the four-day event you'll get a peak at Porsche's past, present and future.
Chosen as Grand Marshalls for this gathering, are the first-ever Porsche Motorsport North America CEO, Alwin Springer and the three-time IMSA GT2 Champion.
Alwin Springer has been a part of Porsche Motorsport for over 50 years. First as a technician and ultimately as CEO of Porsche Motorsport North America from January 1990 to February 2004. He was responsible for shaping Porsche's motorsport presence in the US into what it is today, and still continues to do so as a consultant. “I never dreamed one day I would be honored in this way”, said Springer. “In my career, the goal has been the next race. We focused everything on our next win. We didn't think about creating a legacy, but this is the result of that. I am not one for a show of emotion, but this has touched me”.
Patrick Long, whose lengthy list of racing accomplishments include, being 3-time IMSA Champion, GT Class wins driving a Porsche 911 at the 24 Hours of Daytona, the 12 Hours of Sebring, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Petit Le Mans, and others, is excited to share the human stories behind the legends of the Porsche motorsport legacy: “Porsche is special in that the history of our brand walks hand-in-hand with our motorsport history," said Long. "The icons of Porsche have influenced what has happened on track and on the street no matter what their titles might be. Alwin's influence can be seen on the track and on the roads today. That is what Rennsport is about and I am deeply honored to share this role with him. But we are only the figureheads. This is about the icons of the brand that we will have at Rennsport Reunion 7 this fall.”
