Following the overwhelming positive response to the inaugural Porsche Rennsport Australia Motor Racing Festival in 2013, Porsche Cars Australia has announced the second Rennsport Festival will be held in 2016 at Sydney Motorsport Park on Saturday April 30 and Sunday May 1.

Food and Entertainment

Kids Zone

The highlight of the Kids Zone will be the Porsche Kids Driving School. Suitable for young enthusiasts between the ages of 5 to 8, kids will thrive on testing their steering ability. Add to the mix the always popular jumping castle and face painters and our Junior Porsche aficionados will be ecstatic with their Rennsport Experience.

Porsche Straβe

The Porsche Straβe will house some of Australia’s most famous and prestigious Porsche cars from an array of eras. Included will be the two ‘Rolling Museum’ race cars – the Porsche 935-77 and Porsche LMP1-98 – that have travelled from the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart and will star as the centrepiece of the event’s iconic car display.

Show ‘n’ Shine

For those who love their cars, but drive them daily, the Rennsport Show ‘n’ Shine will welcome you to display your pride and joy! A relaxed approach to judging applies. Three trophies are on offer: The Porsche Cars Australia Trophy, The Porsche Clubs of Australia Trophy and The People’s Choice Trophy. From sports cars to Cayennes to Panameras and racing Porsches no longer in use, the Rennsport Show ‘n’ Shine provides an opportunity for everyone to display with pride. Judging will be held on Saturday, with the cars to remain on display on Sunday.

Entry fees along with entry to the Rennsport event apply.

Show ‘n’ Shine entries are now open. Entries close 22 April 2016.

The pinnacle of Australian one-make racing: Porsche Carrera Cup Australia will headline the Porsche Rennsport Australia Motor Racing Festival with its unique two-driver endurance format. The championship will hold two hour-long Pro-Am races, pairing one professional driver and one semi-professional driver in each Porsche in search for Carrera Cup victory.

GT3 Cup Challenge presented by Pirelli will also adjust its normal championship round for an endurance battle worthy of Porsche’s motorsport history.

Porsche Regularity

Regularity is considered the entry level to motorsport in Australia. All Porsche cars are eligible, with only minimal safety and CAMS licence requirements. Split into 3 divisions based on year model and lap times, first time competitors all the way through to Porsche club regulars will each set their own time to achieve on every lap. The winner will be decided by the driver losing the least amount of points over each session over the weekend.
