If you want to gauge the size of the crowd at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, you look to the hillside and check out parking lot. And while we are just halfway through the first day of Porsche Rennsport IV, it's filling up. Estimates are that some 65,000-75,000 Porsche fans will be at the track over the three-day event, rivaling crowds for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion.
The paddock is literally jammed. What Porsche would you like to see next? A 917? A 914/6? The famous Moby Dick 911? A racing Speedster? A Porsche GT3 Cup car? Just stand in one place and do a slow 360...you'll see them all.
Practice has already begun and you can gauge what's out there...the early fours with a growly sort of buzz, the big boomer 917s...well booming.
