New Porsche Festival Will Boast Races, Test Drives And Stunning Displays

Car Culture / Comments

The event will bring Porsches old and new.

Porsche will host its first Sportscar Together Festival between September 10-12 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway later this year. The three-day event will bring together fans, race drivers and Porsche folks to celebrate everything the company offers including test drives, autocross, and displays of current, past and future product. "Not to be confused with Rennsport," Porsche told us, "which is more focused on historic racing and legend drivers." It will, however, host rounds 11 and 12 of its 16-round Porsche Carrera Cup North America one-make racing series.

"Car culture is a sense of family, of warmth and of shared passions and dreams - and this is at the core of the Sportscar Together Festival," said Kjell Gruner, President and CEO of Porsche Cars North America. "It'll be a living, breathing and exhilarating celebration of not just cars created by Porsche, but of car culture itself - for all ages. We look forward to welcoming everyone who shares this passion - whether they're a Porsche owner or not - to a unique weekend of action, on and off the track."

The Porsche Club of America will be a high-profile participant at the festival with the Club Racing Program taking center stage. The 2.4-mile, 14-turn road course will be used for all track sessions. PCA will compete on track "representing the entry level of the Porsche Motorsport Pyramid." There will also be an autocross course setup, where drivers get to clock their best times around a coned course.

Almost everything Porsche makes will be in attendance, from its road-going 911s and 718 Boxsters, to its 911 GT3 Cup cars in several variants. The Porsche Carrera Cup North America series uses the newest Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race car, the type 992, in its Pro and Pro-Am classes and the previous generation type 991.2 in the Pro-Am 991 class. Porsche notes that its 911 GT3 Cup, type 992, is directly based on the 2022 model year Porsche 911 GT3 road car. The races will last 45 minutes a piece.

The Porsche Sprint Challenge North America will also race twice, in 40-minute sessions, with three classes competing for group honors in Platinum (Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, type 991.2), Gold (Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, type 991.1) and Silver (Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport).

There will be off-road experiences too, as well as a Family Fun Zone and a Classic Restoration competition. You can buy tickets now at the Indy Motor Speedway website. Three-day general admission tickets cost $100. Two-day (Saturday and Sunday) tickets are $70 and single day tickets are $40.
