A little Birdie told me.... (Rennsport Reunion IV Oct 2011)
 
..... Rennsport Reunion IV, Monterey CA October 13th through the 15th. PLUS, I just read about it on Facebook also, so it must be true. ;)


:thumbsup:

We've booked our rooms already before the announcement is officially made and got a kick butt deal :)

I just wanted my 993 buddies to know so we can all get together again and have some FUN!! A Rennlist Reunion at the Rennsport Reunion. How cool is that?


Anyone have a car we can borrow for the event <wink>

I'm so excited. I had to tell SOMEONE!!!! :)

I went in 07 for the first time & was looking forward to it last year.

Have to say that I'm very happy it's being held @ Laguna Seca rather than Daytona; MUCH better hotel & restaurant options!

Porsche Race Car Classic on October 16th!
 
The final event of that Rennsport week in California will be called the 'Porsche Race Car Classic'. It will be held at Quail Lodge on October 16th at the field where Porsche set up its 'Zentrum' for the Panamera world introduction several years ago. It will be a once-in-a-lifetime reunion of famous race cars and drivers from the period. The planning for this event started 3 years ago and you don't want to miss it. It is an expensive ticket (includes admission & unlimited food & drinks like The Quail in August) but $350 of the $400 ticket is a charitable contribution for cancer research and it's tax deductible. Like The Quail, tickets will be limited so plan ahead. Also suggest all make your hotel reservations early. z356 (Carmel)

Thanks JoAnne!!!!!!

I booked a room 5.2 miles (their description) away from Laguna Seca. ~$100/night.

Great news. I hope the turn out rivals Rennsport III, I would love to see an overflowing paddock.

Count me IN !!

The Birdie told me that tomorrow is the "official" all out announcement so get those reservations in before the crowd finds out.

It's already been posted on FB and Pelican and on the site for the Charity show on Saturday at the Quail Lodge.

Formal PR just released. Contrary to some of the rumours leading up, the dates are 14-16 October, not starting on the 13th. Just a head's up for those booking hotels, etc.

We're booked and ready to go - can't wait!

PS - scored a 4 star $130 room at Portola Spa on Priceline last night.

My Birdie is a sponsor and he still says the 13th to the 16th. There is supposed to be a HUGE caravan coming up from So. Cal on the 12th so I'm thinking there is going to be something happening on the 13th that I do not want to miss out on. It might not be an official Rennsport Reunion event on the 13th, but the Quail Lodge event on the 16th isn't an official Rennsport Reunion event either :) I really have no idea, but we'll be flying in on the 12th so we don't miss out on anything. Maybe the 13th is a free day at the track like it is before the Historics. It's one of my favorite days. Everyone is loose and they are just practicing and off loading the cars. It's a great day to take pictures since the track isn't crowded. Who knows..... MAYBE it's a wine tour and tech sessions ????? My mind is running amuck.


I'm hoping someone puts on some sort of a Festivus for the rest of us who can't attend the Porsche Race Car Classic Concours d’Elegance at the Quail Lodge in Carmel Valley on Sunday, Oct. 16th for one reason or the other. It is for a GREAT cause but not everyone can spend that sort of money to attend. Another show for the 'show what you drove' crowd for those who can't afford 400.00 per ticket would be nice. That way EVERYONE would be happy and everyone would have a chance to actually participate in something. One can dream anyway.... I suppose the Porsche Corral with be overkill enough for viewing "regular Porsches" <wink>

A lot of people have their hotels lined up already. :) I can't wait, but I said that already didn't I?

RJT 03-08-2011 08:36 PM

Ticket Info..... Get in on the Corral EARLY! There is going to be a limit of 250 cars. There are going to be a whole heck of a lot more Porsche's there than only 250. Even though I no longer have a 993, doesn't mean it's not my favorite P-car. I'd LOVE to see more 993's than anything else in the Paddock.... Hope there are at least a few 356's there too.

:jumper::jumper: This is exciting!!!

I'll be skipping the event @ the Quail. Maybe we should start a "who's going and where I'm staying (optional)" thread in the near future?

FGL28 03-08-2011 08:42 PM

They are going to have to adjust that number up.

Chirp Chirp......


Maybe that's all the Lower parking fits. Sounds about right if they park everyone in a spot with no one getting blocked in. It sucks though.

Parade laps? Cool.

You know where I'm staying.... <snicker>

That's actually a good idea since we'll all be spread out all over town depending on budget.

I'm still trying to figure out what is happening on the 13th.....
