Europe’s largest classic Porsche gathering

PORSCHE Club GB is delighted to announce the return of ‘Classics at the Castle’, a celebration of KG-badged Porsches set in the spectacular grounds of Hedingham Castle on Sunday September 3.

‘Classics at the Castle’ is Europe’s largest classic Porsche gathering. You don’t need to be a club member, or have a Porsche to attend – the event is open to all motoring enthusiasts, and children under 12 years old go free.

An integral part of the event is the iconic display of pre-‘74 (KG badged) Porsches, which has been at the heart of the show for over 10 years and is always a crowd pleaser.

This year to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 911S, the Castle driveway will feature a static display of 50 examples, set out in chronological order. It promises to be one of the most complete line-ups of the 911S showcasing all the models in the ‘S’ production spectrum, including those built in the Porsche AG period until the ‘S’ designation was deleted.

Several notable vehicles confirmed include two rare right-hand-drive S models from 1967– 2.2-litre ‘S’ and ‘S’ Sport and the ex-Vic Elford 2.4-litre car.

The Porsche Paddock provides designated parking for modern Porsches models built post 1973, providing a great opportunity to show off your 356, 911, 912, 914 and RS Carrera.

There is an abundance of trade stands and food vendors, plus the opportunity to explore the magnificent 12th century Castle and grounds.

The organisers are keen to hear from any owners of genuine chassis numbered S models that would like to participate in a static 50 car presentation of 911S models along the main driveway. Vehicles must be factory built chassis numbered S models –Targa & Coupe. Please contact: Fred Hampton by email: 356@porscheclubgb.com

Event Venue: Hedingham Castle, Bayley St, Castle Hedingham, Halstead, Essex CO9 3DJ. Gates open at 10am and the event finishes at 4pm. Pre-booking essential as tickets will not be available on the gate.
