- What: Double Event featuring the Porsche Experience Day 2018 and a Mountain Drive
The champion of Le Mans on its great farewell tour in the world’s fourth-largest island nation. As part of a double event, the 919tribute will be making two prestigious appearances in Japan, a country that is hugely enthusiastic about motorsport.
On 16 and 17 June 2018, the 919tribute will be at the Porsche Experience Day 2018 the Fuji Speedway track. One day later, on 18 June 2018, it will undertake a mountain drive on the picturesque, panoramic Hakone Turnpike road.
At this year’s Porsche Experience Day, the successful 70-year history Porsche will be celebrated – and at the same time a bright light will be shone on the future of mobility. In homage to the three-time Le Mans winner, the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid and the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo will be presented with the sporty racing outfit of the successful 919tribute. To launch the Porsche Carrera Cup Japan, the trio will then jointly perform a demo run on the Fuji Speedway track. Just to remind you, it was here at the foot of the 3776-metre-high Mount Fuji that a 919 Hybrid driven by Mark Webber first recorded the fastest racing lap on 12 October 2014.
The next day, the 919tribute stops at the Hakone Turnpike. This beautiful stretch of road, which is 15 kilometres long and rises to an altitude of 1000 metres, is the ideal setting for a photoshoot. The 919tribute will be accompanied by the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid and the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo. As well as the scenery and a great atmosphere, there will also be plenty of other things for the fans to enjoy. For example, a fascinating Porsche exhibition in Daikanzan parking area at the summit of Hakone Mountain.
