Porsche is celebrating 50 years of the Porsche 911 this year. Among their many plans to mark this milestone, is to gather a parade of 911 Porsche 911’s on the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit on Sunday 28 July, 2013.
The event organizers are working closely with Porsche Club GB to ensure this happens successfully and they expect to parade of legendary Porsches including the Carrera, RS, RSR, GT, Speedster, Targa and Turbo variants. The event will also help raise funds for the “Hope for Tomorrow” cancer charity.
Nick Hine, Chairman of Porsche Club GB said;
Achieving 911, Porsche 911s on track at Silverstone all at the same time, initially seemed an ambitious target. However, there has been strong interest from 911 owners from all over the world and we already have nearly 400 confirmed participants. Fifty years of 911 evolutions, combined with famous drivers from Porsche’s illustrious racing history taking part, mean that the fight for pole position at Silverstone has never been quite so strong!
Over 820,000 Porsche 911s have been built, making it the most successful sports car in the world. The 911 is the central point of reference for all other Porsche series. From the Cayenne to the Panamera, every Porsche is the most sporting automobile in its category, and each one carries a piece of the 911 philosophy. It has also excelled in racing with two thirds of Porsche’s 30,000 race victories to date notched up by the 911.
Tickets for the Silverstone Classic must be purchased in advance and ‘Early Bird’ discounts are available to those booking before the end of March.
