Porsche Classics at the castle returns this September
By George Woodward 20/03/2017
Set in the beautiful grounds of Hedingham Castle, Classics at the Castle goes back to basics.
The organising team is happy to confirm that Classics at the Castle will take place on Sunday, 3 September at Hedingham Castle.
This year will again see the presentation of an appreciation of all the classic ‘KG’ Porsches that have been at the heart of the event over the last 10 years. There will also be a move away from the undeniably spectacular but ultimately more ‘corporate’ feel of recent years. Having listened to participants who have supported every event from the start, and others whose respected views mirror our own, the 2017 edition will be aiming for a return to the ‘meeting of friends with a passion for Porsche’ scenario of the early iterations.
Consequently for 2017 the moving parades will be replaced with a static chronological presentation on the long driveway to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the advent of the 911S in 1967. This will be one of the most complete line-ups of the 911S in this anniversary year, and will give visitors the opportunity to get close to the cars and their owners.
The aim is to showcase 50 examples in a chronological sequence that will include all the models in the ‘S’ production spectrum, including those built in the Porsche AG period until the ‘S’ designation was deleted. We already have some really special cars pencilled in, including two rare right-hand-drive S models from 1967– 2.2-litre ‘S’ and ‘S’ Sport and the ex Vic Elford 2.4-litre car – and more are invited.
Forward planning is already under way, so do make contact as we will be pleased to hear from owners of the many variants who may like to be allocated a place in the final line-up. As usual all model types from 1950 to 1973 will be displayed together in the Castle grounds and the Deer Park will again be home to the wide array of later generations of Porsches parked together.
