This annual launch traditionally held at Sepang Int. Circuit was bigger than ever with a convoy of more than 30 Porsche’s including
a Carrera GT,a 911 GT3 RSR
and the Cayenne S Transsbyeria as well as road and heritage cars driven by Singapore Porsche Club members, through Orchard Road leading the way to the Porsche Pit Stop for public showcase at the Padang. At the same time Porsche Club Singapore was celebrating its 20th anniversary. Hundreds of Porsche owners and interested spectators came by to check out all the beautiful showcases. I was amazed to learn how many Porsche’s actually are registered to negotiate Singapore’s congested roads nowadays.
Porsche now and then
To add to the racing atmosphere there was also music, a giant TV screen with race footage and information videos, information on the 2008 Formula 1™ SingTel Singapore Grand Prix, the Porsche Club Singapore and the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia......plus (surprise, surprise in Singapore!!!) a food and beverage tent.
Race simulators were also a hit among young and old.
