A few of us have visited The Dinslaken Porsche Festival in previous years, and it is arguably the biggest Porsche only event in Europe with cars travelling from as far away as Russia and Spain.
The event is always on the 1st May and next year will be the 18th time it has been held. The event organiser is a good friend and he always gives us an infield parking area in the centre of the showground so we are right amongst the action.

At this month’s R22 meeting a potential trip was discussed and there has been a good bit of interest. I have also been speaking to Barry Clarkson (R1), Greg Harm (R3) and Kevin Dodd (R18) and there is interest in doing this as a Northern PCGB trip as Members from these regions are also interested in coming along.
The hotel we always stay in is The TRYP hotel which is 500m away from a large indoor shopping centre with an excellent selection of waterside bars and restaurants. It also has secure parking and is next door to a Shell petrol station that has a car pressure washer for those that want to keep their car clean.

For those who would like to do a bit more, there is the option to extend your European adventure and join some of us who are planning to continue to Nurburgring then to Spa Francorchamps Circuit. Why not try a lap of the iconic circuit, visit the museum or just chill out in your circuit view room and watch the action? Or if you prefer visit some of the beautiful villages or small towns nearby.
A full itinerary, including approximate costs can be found HERE.
Myself and Greg Harm have reserved some rooms at the hotels in Oberhausen, Nurburgring & Spa and these will be available on a first come basis.
If you would like any more information or are interested in joining us, email me at Cumbria@porscheclubgb.com
