The event was kicked off by Mark Porsche, the great-grandson of company founder Ferdinand Porsche, who said: “It’s been a family member over all the generations of the 911 series and I'm very proud to be here today to represent the Porsche family at this great event. I think that to have these 1,200 cars on track is the attention that the 911 deserves for its 50th birthday. I can’t thank the Porsche Club GB enough for making this event possible.”
The celebration also served to raise funds for the Hope for Tomorrow charity, which brings mobile chemotherapy units to cancer patients.
