2018. It has been 70 years Since Porsche 356 was born in this world.
In this memorial year, Porsche 911RSR won both GTE Pro, and GTEAm classes at Le-mans. At the same time in Japan, Porsche experience day had been held at Fuji speedway. There was a 919Hybrid EV version demo run. Which Porsche won Le man last few years.
Also, there was 959 Paris Dakar displayed, which won Paris Dakar in 1986. Actually, this very car got second by Jacky Ickx. was chosen from Porsche museum in Germany. I personally surprised that they picked off road car.
I remember when I was a kid, we had a very good economy in Japan that Metropolitan museum in Tokyo ikebukuro had many porsche from porsche displayed and I went there many times.
At the end there was a carrera cup and carrera cup asia(PCCA) in the international course.
