| 'Race cars are meant to race not rust'
Atlanta. With the famed Monterey Motorsports Reunion as backdrop, Porsche Motorsport North America (PMNA) today announced it will expand from serving teams and owners of contemporary 911 race cars to providing a similar service to the large number of collectors of vintage Porsche race cars in the US and Canada. PMNA has established a partnership with a new historic motorsports department that is currently being established within Porsche AG's Motorsport Division in Weissach, Germany. The new department will provide expert restoration services to the Porsche Museum for many of the vintage competition cars the company owns well beyond the ones displayed in its riveting exhibition center. When ready, a number of these cars will be entered in the increasingly popular vintage racing circuit around the world.
'We want to keep the memory of Porsche's many racing successes alive by not just putting our legendary race cars on display but by letting them actively compete in events that celebrate historic motorsports,' said Achim Stejskal, Director of the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. 'Race cars have to race, not rust,' he added with a smile.
Working closely with the Weissach, Germany based operation, PMNA will add heritage racecar restoration and servicing to its repertoire. So far, the company has been mainly involved in the selling and supporting 911 race cars to North American owners and teams as well as in the restoration of race engines for historic Porsche race cars like the 917 and 962.
