Journalists rushed to christen the forthcoming contest “the slowest race in the world”, although in reality nobody has a clue about what speeds will be discussed. Brand Porsche has officially invited all the owners of the tractors its production to join the first ever race these cars. Who responds and what they will come – the main intrigue.
That is not a joke, according to changes in the program of the festival Rennsport Reunion. Chase the tractor remains on the famous circuit WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in California, but they chose a simplified version of the competition. This is analogous to “24 hours of Le Mann”, only a lot shorter time, and the race will go until the fifth turn there are fears that speeding tractor just would not fit in the sixth.
Brand Porsche has never produced their own tractors, although has developed a few models in the middle of the last century. The workshops of the company were hybrids, built under license by other manufacturers. However, the presence of the logo makes it easier, and because the machine issued in the period from 1956 to 1963, can compete on behalf of Porsche. It is only necessary to send the application form with a photo of the unit, which is still on the go and ready to race, plus pay the entry fee.
