Some pics from last weekend at RR VI. Porsche brought over many of the museum cars including the Follmer 917/10 and the Donahue 917/30. Both were immaculately prepared and looked like NEW. They both ran on track amazingly. And David Donahue drove his father's car on track Sunday afternoon, epic. IMO the 917/30 is the baddest race car in all of motorsports history.

Great pics! I was there with a bunch of fellow NYers. Sensory overload.
Agreed that the 917's are the most gorgeous cars ever raced. Unfortunately, one of them (I Believe Canepa's) got rear-ended in practice laps Sat. Not too bad, probably only 10 or 15 951's in damage...

superb, over the top, massive thanks... can I ask a favor? post on air-cooled 911 forum, I visit this forum and that one. I'm sure the RLs there would love these.

Thanks for all the pics. My brother and I flew from Toronto to check it out and rented a monster motorhome and stayed trackside. Absolutely the most epic event I've ever been to. My brain is still trying to process everything we saw.

I recognized all the cars and settings you posted as I have similar pictures. However, I don't recognize this venue. Was this taken at Laguna? I really wanted to get a look at the GT1 in this picture and it would bum me out if it was there and I missed it.

A nice 924 race car

How about a tent full of 959's?

Cool vintage Porsche race car. I think this one was on loan from the Peterson Museum. We visited the museum after Rennsport and they were selling posters of this car.

Even electric power represented by the Mission E

Actually that pic is from the Porsche Experience in Carson CA. About 15 miles from home.

Somehow mixed in with my other pics. Wifey sent me there for my birthday present.
