Watch 62 Years Of Porsche Racing History In One POV Lap
Watch 20 legendary Porsches swarm Laguna Seca.
How can you sum up Porsche, one of the most legendary sports car brands in the world, in just two and a half minutes? By capturing a POV video of 20 race-winning Porsches, spanning 62 years of remarkable motorsport history, taking one epic lap around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
The video was filmed during Rennsport Reunion V this past September, which attracted more than 60,000 Porsche loyalists to Monterey, California. In total, approximately 320 Porsche racecars, spanning seven racing classes, made demonstration laps around Laguna Seca. Another 75 Porsches, each with immense Le Mans 24 significance, emerged from the depths of Porsche's own historic collection in Germany for this event alone. Finally, over 1,400 road-going Porsches filled every remaining square foot of space available on the racing ground.
There are the scores of enthusiasts that are utterly obsessed with this brand and the unique philosophies it represents. Rennsport Reunion is a profound moment, a cultish gathering that reminds all in attendance what makes the brand so beloved. And the stuff that happens there is unreal.
