The track and the marque may not have a long shared history, although Porsche-powered Indy cars have existed occasionally in the past. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is nonetheless the most sacred ground in all of motorsport, which explains clearly why Stuttgart is returning to the Brickyard over Labor Day weekend for a major celebration of its racing heritage, augmented by a round of the factory’s Porsche Carrera Cup North America racing series. The larger event that surrounds it is known as the Sports Car Together Fest, a celebration of all things fast, especially if they have air-cooled engines at the rear.
Set for September 2nd through 4th at the speedway, the Together Fest is expected to produce the world’s largest one-spot gathering of Porsche GT cars, with the gathering also marking the 50th anniversary of Porsche’s RS models. Other attractions will include the Porsche Classic Restoration Challenge, in which dealerships vie with competition cars they’ve restored themselves; plus the Porsche eSports Championship and boundless lifestyle and shopping options.
