Random 919 and 911RSR demo run photos from Rennsport Reunion V
Porsche brought its 919 and 911RSR to the Porsche Rennsport Reunion V at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in September. Friday saw leisurely parade laps behind a camera car, but Nick Tandy (919) and Fred Makowiecki (911RSR) put in several laps at speed on Saturday. The 919 was stunningly fast, but rumor suggested that it wasn’t even making use of its hybrid electric power. The 911RSR was positively brutal – particularly launching off of the last turn onto the front straight. How important was it for Porsche to have the LeMans winning 919 and the 911RSR (and their drivers) at the Rennsport Reunion event? After announcing the event, Porsche moved the date to accommodate the WEC schedule. Judging from the fan reaction at the track and on social media, it was the right decision.
