Porsche Werks Reunion declared success at Amelia Island
(March 17, 2017) COLUMBIA, Md. — Porsche Club of America's Werks Reunion, already a fixture of Northern California's Monterey Car Week after just its third year, has taken its winning formula to Amelia Island, Fla. March 10, Werks Reunion featured nearly 700 Porsche vehicles, 160 of which appeared in judged classes. Porsches came from 32 states plus Puerto Rico to celebrate the Porsche marque as well as the 20th anniversary of the popular Boxster two-seater sports car.
"Porsche registrations officially sold out over two weeks prior to the event," said Vu Nguyen, the executive director of the Porsche Club of America.
"Even though spaces in the judged classes and the corral were sold out, Porsche fans still wanted to come and support the event. The general event parking was filled with Porsches as well. Our goal was to take what we've learned in Monterey and bring this great event to the East Coast to allow club members and Porsche fans on the other side of the country to participate," said Nguyen.
Awards were given to winners in 15 different classes, plus eight corporate awards. The presenting sponsor was Pirelli Tires, and corporate sponsors included Porsche Cars of North America; Hollywood Wheels Auctions, which held a sale in conjunction with Werks Reunion immediately after the event; Reliable Carriers; Leland-West Insurance; LN Engineering; MCK Engineering; and DC Automotive.
The Werks Reunion returns to Monterey, Calif., on Aug. 18.
