Porsche 911 S/T Larrousse 1970 Tour de France on 20/07/2019, at Rennsport Collective, Donington Hall, Leicestershire, UK,
They were all there, from a Pre-A 356 to the latest 991.2 GT3 Clubsport, by way of the most mouth-watering collection of 911s, 956 and 962s, including the indomitable 917. The occasion was the first Rennsport Collective display, open to the public, with quite simply the most sensational and compelling presentation of Porsches you could hope to see. The setting was the 230-year old Donington Hall, nestled in the north-west Leicestershire countryside which comprises 26 acres of grounds with rolling lawns and mature woodlands. Today, the estate is owned by Stuart Garner, the owner of Norton Motorcycles and is home to the famous British motorcycle brand.
The Rennsport Collective is an interesting concept. Their website will tell you that it is not a club, but a coalition of Porsche enthusiasts who all share a passion for the Stuttgart brand. To belong, you need to submit your application along with a description of the Porsche(s) you own and the reasons why your Porsche is special or unique. It is this simple requirement that sets this Collective apart from the other Porsche clubs, because the cars are the stars as was patently obvious from the event this last Saturday. And because it is not a club, there was none of that unwanted hierarchy or politics visible on the day, everybody just seemed to be enjoying themselves.
