Porsche will be well presented during the Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort. Visitors can enjoy action in the ‘Porsche village’ and discover an iconic race car: the 1971 24 Hours of Le Mans winning Porsche 917K, driven by Gijs van Lennep, will be on display. All entry tickets will provide access to the paddock and therefore Porsche invites everyone to have a look in their village during the Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort on August 28, 29 and 30.
Porsche has been successful in motorsports for decades. It’s therefore obvious that many different Porsche race cars will hit track during the event. Six Porsche race teams will organise themselves in the Porsche village. That results in the unique opportunity for visitors to experience the teams in their preparation of the cars for practice sessions and races. The Porsche 356, 904, 911 RSR and other classic 911 models can be seen from up close. The excellent sound of Porsche race engines will deliver an appropriate background music.
Gijs van Lennep and Dr. Helmut Marko won the 1971 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans with their Porsche 917K. The two drivers completed a record distance of 5.335 kilometres, a result that was not bettered until 2010. The Porsche 917K will be proudly presented on a prominent place in the village. Porsche ambassador Gijs van Lennep, who’ve also won the 1976 edition of the 24 hours race at Circuit de la Sarthe with Porsche, will sign autographs twice a day on Saturday and Sunday.
50 years of Porsche 911 Targa
Porsche celebrate the fiftieth birthday of the Porsche 911 Targa during the Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort. Owners of these vehicles will exhibit their convertible sports car on Sunday afternoon during the special Porsche demonstration on the track. Seven generations of the Porsche 911 Targa are lined-up in the Porsche village as well. The successful manufacturer of sports cars welcomes a large amount of Porsche drivers and their cars will be parked next to the main grandstand. The Porsche parking is an exhibition on its own!
