Spectators were treated to first class entertainment and a chance to watch the Toby Venter Invitational Race.

This of course meant a host of amazing Porsche sports cars all parked in one place, about all 1500 models with more than 4500 guests in attendance.

From classics, sportscars, even supercars, and a very special Porsche in the form of a replicated 356 #1 on loan to Porsche SA from the mothership's Museum in Germany.
