Submitted by on October 1, 2014

Festival of PorscheBehold the Festival of Porsche. On September the 21st 2014, Porsche’s from all eras, spanning from the 1950’s to the present day came together for a celebration of the famous name at the legendary Brands Hatch.

The weekend was organised by the circuit owner in association with the Porsche Club GB and Porsche Cars GB.LMC_5647

Even for the non motoring enthusiast, the Porsche marquee has a special place for almost everyone. Although primarily known for the iconic 911, Porsche has an incredibly rich history, with its very essence embedded in motor racing. Therefore it was only fitting that such a festival event would be held at a track.
