The Porsche Rennsport Festival was held at Sydney Motorsport Park for the second time, 5000 petrol heads made the pilgrimage to Sydney Motorsport Park to see over 200 of the worlds most iconic porsches hit the circuit with its Australian debut event 3 years ago it was going to be an event that was not to be missed. With hundreds of Porsches ranging from the earliest models to the latest GT3 Spec machinery. Speaking of which Walkinshaw Performance brought their new GT3 911 for a shakedown ahead of the Australian GT round at Barbagallo Raceway in Western Australia.
Porsche Carrera Cup Australia held their 3rd round at the Rennsport event, this round had two 1-Hour races on Saturday and Sunday. The drawcard for the mini enduros however was to be a swap to a second driver around the half way mark. Teams had a good pool of top drivers to pick from with it being in between rounds for the V8s meaning drivers such as Shane Van Gisbergen, Garth Tander, Lee Holdsworth & Nick Percat. Shane showed once again his brilliance in anything with 4 wheels & a motor, with a storming rear of field 20th to 2nd drive before handing over to Paul Kelly.
Even minutes before the race Garth & Nick were cracking jokes with Shane, just a way to ease the tension before the hour race.
The weekend had the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge, Demo runs of Porsche Museum cars, Regularity Groups of all different amazing kinds of Porsches. A truly vast display of the Brands history, which is amazing to see.
Off the track, the atmosphere was great with a massive group of cars which were happy to to sit and shine to all that wanted to see them.
