Extensive 2014 schedule for Porsche ‘Rolling Museum’

Every year, racing icons from the Porsche Museum are let loose on a variety of events as part of Stuttgart’s ‘Rolling Museum’. 2014 will once again provide this myriad of motorsport legends with an action-packed year as Porsche have announced their full line-up for the year ahead.

Highlights of the Porsche Museum’s extensive schedule include appearances at the Mille Miglia, Goodwood Festival of Speed, and Le Mans, where a host of exotic Porsche 911s, and other Weissach machinery will likely thrill the crowds.

Running from 15 to 18 April, Porsche will enter a 550 Spyder, two 356 Coupés, and a 356 Speedster in the 1000-mile, four-day recreation of the legendary Italian road race. Behind the wheel, drivers will include five-time Le Mans winner, Jacky Ickx.

The annual motorsport extravaganza at Lord March’s Goodwood estate (taking place from 26 to 29 June) will see Porsche focus on celebrating the turbocharger, a particularly apt theme in the year of the 911 Turbo’s 40th anniversary.

Porsche’s line up at the Festival of Speed will include 964 and 993 Turbos, as well as a Porsche 959, and the 1.4-litre 935 ‘Baby’ campaigned in the 1977 DRM series by none other than Weissach stalwart, Ickx. A host of Porsche 917s will also make their obligatory appearance at the Sussex event.

As you already know, the 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans is a huge event for Porsche, as the 919 Hybrid marks the return of Stuttgart to the top class of sportscar racing. To mark the occasion, the Musueum will be displaying a 911 Carrera RSR as raced in the 1973 Targa Florio, as well as a Porsche 935/77 racer.

Road going Porsche 911s will also be celebrated at the French endurance race, with appearances by the latest 991 Turbo Cabriolet, and the original 930 3.0-litre car.

Outside of Germany, the Paul Pietsch Klassik is a little known car rally. However, for the 2014 running, Walter Röhrl will be taking to cockpit of the iconic Porsche 911 Carrera 2.7 RS in order to tackle the 450-kilometre route. If ever there was a reason to visit south-west Germany between 6 and 7 July, this is it.

A few days later, 919 racer, Marc Lieb will put a Porsche 911 GT1-98 through its paces at the Ennstal Classic on 10 to 12 July, making 2014 a year not to miss for Porsche enthusiasts of all ages.
