About Rennsport

About hero

Rennsport Reunion was born in 2001, conceived by racing great Brian Redman and Porsche Cars North America’s longstanding press spokesperson Bob Carlson, both of whom noted that at every vintage racecar gathering, Porsche’s racing and collector cars instantly became the prime focus of attention. Both men envisioned an event at which both racing enthusiasts and Porsche lovers could celebrate their automotive passions. The title Rennsport was drawn, quite simply, from the German term for “motorsport.”

The first Rennsport Reunion at Lime Rock, Connecticut defined the recipe that has been followed ever since: bring historic Porsche racecars and their renowned drivers to a storied racetrack, then invite enthusiasts to experience the golden age of motorsport, trackside and in its full visceral sound and fury. Mix an equal measure of opportunity for collectors of every vintage of Porsche to drive the same track as the greats, as well as to exhibit and talk about their vehicles. Stir thoroughly, adding a dash of modern technology in the form of contemporary Porsche racing and road cars. Result: a perfectly prepared feast for Porschephiles and motorsport buffs alike.
