    Anyone up for this. It's only 3 hours away by Interstate.

    Porsche is the featured marque and there are some real historic ones slated to be on display.

    1951 Sauter Porsche was first raced by Heinrich Sauter at the Nurburgring in 1951.

    Other Porsches in the featured class include a rare 1959 718 RSK—one of six “convertible†cars built by Porsche eligible to compete in both sports car and Formula 2 races—a Porsche Abarth Carrera GTL; 904 Carrera; the Porsche 910 suspension-development car that later won the Sports 2.0 Class at Le Mans in 1969 as a private entry; and a 1971 Porsche 908/3 “flunder,†a Martini Racing Team entry at the Nurburgring 1,000 km in 1971, where it finished third overall driven by Gijs van Lennep and Helmut Marko.

    Cadillac is the featured classic marque in 2012, with a special Indiana Cars Class honoring Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg. Other classes include Vintage, American and European Classics, Pre- and Post-War Sports and Grand Touring, Post-War American Hardtops and Convertibles, Corvettes and Muscle Cars.

    I'll be there with my R53 in the enthusiast sections. I hope to have other minis in the group.
