REGISTRATION is open for Winton Motor Raceway’s all-new three-day festival celebrating all things Porsche; Stutt’Fest.
The brainchild of Porsche drivers and enthusiasts Sven Burchartz and Steve Kepper, the event will be held at Circuit Victoria from August 26-28 with all possible models featuring the iconic Porsche badge permitted entry.
It is designed to be an enjoyable weekend with a mix of competitive and more relaxed on-track action coupled with plenty of track time for all competitors – mixed with a relaxed and enjoyable off-track program for Porsche enthusiasts sharing the same ideas.
Originally scheduled for January this year, the event has been moved to the new August date to better allow interstate competitors to participate – after all state borders have opened.
The track program is expected to be very diverse, with everything from one-make Porsche drivers to the fastest GTs and sports cars allowed to race.
The philosophy is “if it has a Porsche badge, you can compete”, with the wide range of on-track offerings showcasing this diversity.
Classes included in the program include the popular Porsche 944 Challenge, a class for GTs, Turbos and other heavily modified cars, Cup Car classes for the popular range of one-make racers seen in Carrera Cup and Sprint Challenge races, as well as the groups N, S and historic Porsche sports cars of all types.
There will also be open regularity for all comers, while the weekend will end with an ‘all-in’ race for charity, with competitors racing their way through what is likely to become the showpiece race of the Stutt’fest by making a charitable donation. .
In addition to on-track action, Stutt’Fest is designed to be a three-day festival with Show ‘n Shine competitions, great food and drink, off-track entertainment and trade shows as a key component.
“The Stutt’fest will be an amazing weekend and a key part of Winton’s calendar of events in 2022, as a Porsche fan myself I can’t wait to see the cars and personalities the event will bring at Winton next August.” said Rowan Harman, Stutt’fest event coordinator.
“The circuit worked closely with the Stutt’fest team to agree on a date that suited everyone, and it’s fitting at the end of August. We look forward to seeing hundreds of Porsches of all shapes and sizes on and around the circuit later this year.
