The Porsche Classic Coast Tour is a relatively young event. However, among classic Porsche fans, it definitely belongs to the top events to be part of. Last weekend, the 4th edition took place. And just as in the previous editions, you could feel the passion, and love for classic Porsches. The place to be was ‘Park La Potinière’ in De Haan, one of the most beautiful cities on the Belgian coast. The Porsche Classic Coast Tour committee choose to donate the proceeds of the event to charity. Roy Velthof donated a cheque of 2000 Euros to Think Pink, an organization that supports women with breast cancer.
A great tour with the classic Porsche
With 80 participants driving the rally, it was a full house. Approximately half of the participants drove a Porsche 356, the oldest dating from 1952. The other half were Porsches 911, ranging in age from 1967 to 1996. The tour of +-165km went to the hinterland of the middle coast, via polder roads along the Bruges countryside. The Porsche Dealership of Knokke offered a coast lunch at the well-known Ostend fish market. After lunch, the tour continued via picturesque roads back to De Haan. An elaborate reception waited for all participants, as well as the award ceremony of the Concours d’Elegance.
The organization deliberately keeps an eye on the quality of the participating cars high. No need to enter a car that is not in a true Concours condition. Quality above quantity is the motto. And that means you only find real gems in each class of the Concours d’Elegance at the Porsche Classic Coast Tour. In the 356 Class, a great 1958 Porsche 356 A T2 Sunroof Coupe went home with the trophy. The 911 Class was won by a 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2.
