Porsche Days Francorchamps

One of the major events organised by the Porsche Club Francorchamps is without any doubt the Porsche Days.Just like the previous years, the Pentecote weekend was chosen as the date, and ofcours the legendary Spa racetrack was the place to be for this amazing event.

Despite a miserable summer in Belgium, during our visit, there was even sun to enjoy. A rather rare phenomenonin Belgium the last few weeks, but that’s another story. Over the weekend, about 8000 visitors found their way to theSpa race track to be part of the largest Porsche only event in Belgium and probably surrounding countries (next to maybe Dinslaken whichofcourse is a major event too).

4 different race classes on the track, Fun, Sport and Racing and Classic. The Fun Class for the unexperienced Porsche drivers with standard Porsches but without slicks. The Sport Class for the more experienced drivers in standard Porsches and without slicks too. The Racing Class can be seen as the PRO class during this event,as it for the true race Porsches and slicks were allowed. The Classic Class was reserved for standard Porsches up to 1989 (Carrera 3.2ltr) and no slicks permitted on the track.

For most people on the track this is a great event to taste what it feels like driving on a track, as for many of them it’s an experience never felt before.

One of my personal hightlights of the Porsche Days was the concours d’elegance held as a tribute and anniversary party for the 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911. Honestly, I think this was the best tribute the Porsche 911 has got on the many events I witnessed. Some extremely rare Porsches could be seen with no less than 2 Porsche 911 SC RS, a Porsche 911ST,Porsche RS Lightweight, a Porsche RSR, a piece of history with an origanal Belgian Police 911 and not to forget a Porsche Club Coupe, one of just 13 pieces, and a truly stunning Porsche 911R. Next toother nice and lovely cars ofcourse.
