Celebrating its 80th Members’ Meeting, the Goodwood Motorsport event saw the Porsche brand take centre stage as the German automaker celebrates its 75th anniversary, the 60th anniversary of the 911 as well as giving a nod to LeMans for its 100th anniversary. To make the most of this historic event, Porsche showcased an amazing lineup of iconic Porsche cars and racecars, including no less than 19 racing 911s spanning three decades of competition. The event started with a sunny spring Saturday, as visitors enjoyed nose-to-tail racing and high-speed demonstration runs. The highlight of the event was a parade of those 19 racing 911s from different decades making for some rather amazing imagery. The parade was a unique celebration, showcasing the diverse history of the 911 in its many competitive guises, including the Martini-liveried 911 Carrera 2.8 RSR, which won the Targa Florio and finished fourth overall at Le Mans. Porsche increased capacity in its race-honed flat-six, and the imposing 1974 911 RSR 3.0 was the result, also seen on the day, along with the iconic longtail 935/78. Other veterans of Porsche’s long history at Le Mans were seen in the 993-generation 911 that was campaigned by customers throughout the second half of the 1990s. Four 911 (993) GT2 R versions were the perfect support act for the last of the Museum’s exhibits for Goodwood in 2023: the 911 GT1 '98.
Take a look at the YouTube video from a couple of years ago showing off a whole contingent of Porsche racecars, old and new, in action at the 2020 Goodwood Speed Week. There looked to have been an even bigger presence along with even better cars at even better displays at the recent 80th staging of the Goodwood Members’ Meeting. This is the kind of thing that has all the Goodwood events on the bucket lists of automotive fanatics around the world: All the Porsches! | Goodwood SpeedWeek 2020 | Goodwood Road & Racing
