PCA shines at Rennsport IV thanks to volunteers and sponsor
More than 250 PCA volunteers made an extraordinary contribution to the success of Rennsport Reunion IV. From Porsche model-specific corrals with 1300 cars to a 911 display with 38 fine examples of that model's lineage, PCA's role also included a hospitality center with presentations by Porsche drivers, engineers and personalities including Dr. Wolfgang Porsche and two race groups with Club Racing cars of various classes and the Rennsport Reunion Cup for 911 Cup cars. The Club's positive role with Rennsport IV was made possible with the outstanding support of our sponsor, Jackson Motorsports Group, with the Michelin spec tire for our racers and by superb cooperation from Porsche Cars North America and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. The PCA Rennsport IV team and its many volunteers made the Club a proud participant in a spectacular and memorable event. Video here.
