Schloss Bensberg 2016

8th edition of Schloss Bensberg is very succesful

The Bensberg Castleand it’s surrounding park are the backgrounds of the 8th edition of the Schloss Bensberg Classics. Combine that with hundreds of the most amazing classic cars, and I bet you won’t be surprised that this edition was another great succes.

Once again the organisation succeeded in surpassing the high expectations. The Schloss Bensberg attracted several thousands of visitors to the wonderful premises. Many of these visitors crossed the close by borders of the Netherlands and Belgium.

Even though this event is not a Porsche only event, it was worth the visit for us Porsche aficionados. As Porsche is delivering the limited series 2016 Porsche 911R one by one,  one of the 1967 World Record cars in Monza, an original Porsche 911R could not be missed at this world class event. The car was accompanied by a rare Porsche Carrera 3.0 RS from the same collection. Sounds great isn’t it? It definitely was, and keep in mind that these were just 2 of the amazing Porsches that you could admire at the Schloss Bensberg.

Several of the visitors brought their classic Porsche to the event to compete in the historic rallye in the wide neighbourhoud of the castle. An exquisite moment to take out your car on roads you probably wouldn’t discover on your own. Sounds inviting for the next edition, isn’t it?
