We’re pleased to announce the National Rally, celebrating 40 years of life the 924 turbo. Before you do something daft like booking a holiday, get in the diary now!

We have decided to run this over two days as we know lots of you will be coming from far way to join us for this fantastic celebration.

This compact but challenging circuit will be available to drive throughout the day. The driving experience will allow you to try out your car in a controlled environment and with some driving tuition on offer too. Pre booking will be required for access to driving experience time and especially if you’d like a ride along instructor too. Costs will follow but, thanks to Gmund’s generous sponsorship, these will be very reasonable.

In addition to the driving time, we hope to gather together as many Turbo variant cars as we can. Whether it’s a concours beauty or a scruffy runner, let’s try to make this the biggest gathering of Turbos we’ve ever had.

Off track, we’re arranging to set up a “village” with traders and some very special displays too. We’ll keep you updated with these as they confirm.

5th May- Spanner and Sponge

As a second day for the weekend, we thought it was time to arrange a Spanner and Sponge- it’s been a while!

Pete is kindly hosting the event this year. A day of chatting, tinkering and sharing skills. Not a great mechanic? Then swap someone else’s expertise to do a little job on your car by cleaning theirs!

More details about both days will follow. Please post below if you're interested or email me on events@porsche924.co.uk

Just to nip in the bud any misconceptions about this.

It is NOT a turbo only event. Far from it, it is our National Rally for the year and all 924s are welcome. I certainly won't be able to rush out and buy a turbo, just for this, and have every intention of wasting lots of petrol around the track, in my old NA!
