As icing on the cake, six-time Le Mans 24 Hours winner and Dakar Rally runner-up Jacky Ickx will also be on hand. Overall, there will be over 50 of Porsche's drivers on hand, signing autographs and driving on track.
Aside from a star-studded driver lineup, this year's Rennsport Reunion will act as the finishing line for Porsche's no-holds-barred Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo. The Nürburgring Nordschleife lap record-breaking vehicle, which fell short of breaking the unofficial Brands Hatch Indy lap record last week, will finish its 2018 tour and head for retirement.
A special Champions Garage in pit row will display 11 victorious Porsche race cars. A 1960 718 RS Spyder which won the first major endurance race for Porsche at the Sebring 12 Hours, driven by Hans Hermann and Olivier Gendebien, is joined by two other particularly special racing vehicles.
A 1984 953 Group B Rally Car which competed on the Dakar Rally, becoming the first sports car to win the car class, and a 2008 RS Spyder LMP2 racer which won three championships in America and the 2008 Sebring 12 Hours overall will also be present.
The 356 "No. 1" Roadster will make an appearance along the new electric Concept Study Mission E will also feature. Other displays include more than 1300 cars in the Porsche Club of America corrals and 70 race cars in the Porsche Heritage tent. Overall, there will be 350 Porsche race cars competing in seven different classes. The racing groups and schedule can be found here, and ticket information can be found on the Laguna Seca website.
