On 20th July 2019, Porsche enthusiasts from all over the world will gather in the picturesque grounds of the Donington Hall estate in Leicestershire to see some of the finest motorsport-inspired Porsches together in one place, for the very first time.
The inaugural Rennsport Collective event will be a true celebration of Porsche Motorsport, with a uniquely curated collection of rare and sought-after road and race cars on display and driving the parade circuit.
The Rennsport Collective is an exclusive group of Porsche enthusiasts who are owners of motorsport-inspired Porsches from across the globe. The Collective aims to share its passion for Porsche Motorsport with fellow enthusiasts across the world, and bring together some of the finest Porsches ever made in an environment that truly does them justice.
The Rennsport Collective event will be open to the public and, for one day only, will give guests the opportunity to see one of the largest collections of motorsport-inspired Porsches ever brought together in the UK. Not only will the cars be displayed against the beautiful backdrop of Donington Hall, but guests can also enjoy the sights and sounds of the cars as they take to the parade circuit for a celebratory lap or two.
The collection will be curated by colour, not by car-type or time period. This will showcase the connections between cars from different eras and styles, brought together in a range of complementary colour palettes. You may find a 991.2 GT2 RS road car in racing yellow alongside the yellow 911 S/T driven by Gerard Larrousse on the Tour de France to third place in 1970; next to the 1995 BPR World Championship winning 993 GT2.
Offering a sneak preview of some of the unique cars that will be in attendance at the event, a series of short films are in development highlighting notable Porsches that form part of the Rennsport Collective. The first of the films are available to view now on the Rennsport Collective YouTube channel.
Paul Geudon, Founder of Rennsport Collective, said: “Born out of a lifelong passion for all things Porsche, the Rennsport Collective is a group like no other. It’s a movement – joining together like-minded and knowledgeable enthusiasts who own a very specific and highly regarded collection of motorsport Porsches – and putting this event together has been a fascinating process.
“It has also been fantastic to bring two automotive legends on board – former evo and Motor Sport editor, Nick Trott, and renowned photographer, Rémi Dargegen, who have been instrumental in the development of Rennsport Collective and this inaugural event.
“The July gathering is the first of its kind and it will be exciting to have such a diverse range of cars in one place for the first time. It really will be a must-attend event for any Porsche motorsport fan and we look forward to welcoming visitors from all over the world to Donington Hall this summer.”
