We’re freshly returned from a massive weekend of Porsche saturation at the inaugural Porsche Rennsport Australia Motor Racing Festival, and we’ve been buzzing all week!

Porsche Rennsport 959

The entirety of Sydney Motorsport Park was packed with Porsches doing something speedy from dawn until dusk over both days, and the collection of cars that Porsche attracted to the event was stunning. Everything from Jacky Ickx’ 1981 Le Mans winning 936 to the humblest of classic 911s was represented, along with everything imaginable in between.

And they were busy all weekend, too! The event was headlined by a round of the Australian Carrera Cup Championship, and featured GT3 Cup Challenge, Production Sports, Historic Porsche Racing, Regularity, Concours, skid pan motorkhana tests, 4WD drives and a whole lot more.

Our own contribution was a lovely little 911 Carrera Targa, with which we all developed quite a bond over the weekend! Editor Rich Fowler had the joyous job of running it in regularity, and came back with a bigger smile after every run as he got faster and more confident in it.

The weekend was a huge success, and we can’t wait to see Porsche Rennsport Australia Motor Racing Festival return bigger and better in the future! Huge thanks to Porsche and everyone involved for putting on what’s sure to be one of the standouts of Australian motorsport for the year!
