Rennsport Reunion Here I Come!

The Porsche Rennsport Reunion is happening this coming weekend and I’m going! I’m pumped. This is my first time for a RR and I am definitely looking forward to it.  With no disrespect to my fellow Jaguar aficionados, Porsche has a lot to offer when it comes to vintage events.  They have performed at the highest levels on the world stage for decades.  So they bring a tremendous amount of “cred” to any vintage event.

There are two things about his event that excite me.  One, I lived in the SF bay area for short time, from 1975 to 1977.  During that time I went to one event at Laguna Seca.  I frankly can’t remember the actual event but I do remember how fascinating the track layout was.  Of course, I’ve seen it many times since then on TV but I’ve never been back. Until now.

Second, from 1971 to 1975 I was a corner worker at Road Atlanta.  And I clearly remember a Porsche 917 in blue and gold Sunoco livery, piloted by Mark Donehue, hurtling around that track at unbelievable speeds.  I look forward to rekindling memories of those days in the 70’s when the 917 ruled Can-Am.

The cherry on the ice cream sundae is that I will be meeting up with some of my internet acquaintances. Thursday night is E-Type night in Mountain View, where I will be having dinner with a group of Jag-Lover denizens.  And I have several agreements to meet with 944 and 928 folks at the RR.  If you are going to be there, drop me an email at harvey.ferris@gmail.com.

Life is good. I’ll be posting pictures during the event. Stay tuned.
