Porsche 911 50 years anniversary event at Jyllandsringen
It’s been 50 years since the very first Porsche 911 made grown men weak. The anniversary of the world’s most winning race car has been celebrated at car shows and race events all over the world.
Never the ones to miss an opportunity to crack open a beer and have a good time, us Danes of course had to have our very own celebration. The Porsche Classic Cup.
It took place the 24th and 25th of August on one of Denmark’s very few active race circuits, Jyllandsringen, and coincided with a week end full of DTC, Formula Ford, Legend Car, Drifting etc. series.
The 911 was celebrated with a parade on Jyllandsringen with every 911 present and with a race between classic 911 race cars from Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
Here are a few select pictures from the event.
