Brands Hatch and Porsche Club GB’s biennial Festival of Porsche has been delayed until 2021, in a move designed to ensure that fans of the German manufacturer are able to enjoy the best possible event when it returns.
A date for 2021 will be announced in due course with plans for the Brands Hatch festival to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Porsche Club GB. Further details will be announced as they become available in the coming months.
This year’s planned event on Sunday 6 September will go ahead as the re-titled ‘Porsche Club Raceday’, with the original race content going ahead as planned.
All tickets purchased for Festival of Porsche will now be valid for the Porsche Club Raceday event on the same date at Brands Hatch. If you had tickets for Festival of Porsche, please let MSV know once their offices fully reopen and you will be entitled to either a credit or refund for the difference in price. MSV can be contacted via email on email@example.com
MSV Motorsport Events Manager David Willey said: “Naturally we’re very disappointed not to be welcoming Porsche Club GB’s members to Brands Hatch for a big celebration this summer, but this is the right decision to ensure as many people as possible can enjoy the very best version of Festival of Porsche. We were very enthusiastic about everything that was in the works for this year’s event and we’ll be pushing harder than ever to deliver a superb experience for customers when we celebrate the club’s 60th anniversary next year.”
Porsche Club GB added: “As David has said above, we are all very disappointed not to be bringing the Porsche Festival to Brands Hatch this year but with the current situation we have taken the decision to postpone the event to 2021. We also want to put on a great event and are reliant on third party support for our displays unfortunately a lot of these are not currently available.
“The Porsche Club Raceday will be a great opportunity for members to come along to see some fantastic racing between our club championship classes, we are also working on some additional classes to be announced shortly”.
