Rennsport Reunion V
September 7th, 2015
Rennsport Reunion V is just around the corner and if it is as good as RRIV four years ago, we will be in for a treat. I am making my way across from Australia for the event and also catching up with some Porsche enthusiast friends who will show me a couple of other original 550s both on the road and in restoration. It will be a great opportunity to see the technical side of how these cars are built and the skills needed to restore them using traditional methods used by the artisans in the Porsche and Wendler factories back in the 50s.
RRV should also see the unveiling of 550-0075 for the first time since its recent restoration, along with a number of other 550s which will be both on the track and on display. No doubt you will find me hanging around this area most of the time!
I have designed a tee shirt which I will be wearing and also I will be bringing a few extras across with me, which is an adaptation of one of my Sebring posters featuring 550-09. The tee will have the graphic on the front and a small ‘type550.com’ logo on the back. If you are also going and would like one, send me an email to email@example.com with your size and I will bring an extra one with me. They will be US$40 ea.
It would be great to meet up with any other 550 enthusiasts that follow my site and updates at the track, so let me know if you are going. See you in a few weeks.
