60 Years of Porsche Racing at Kyalami set for release

Hot on the heels of the exclusive Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit – 60 Years of Memories, publishers, SA Motorsport Memories are about to release another, subtly more focussed book. 60 Years of Porsche Racing at Kyalami will imminently be available to order.

Recently previewed at a function there hosted by dual Porsche South Africa and Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit CEO Toby Venter and author Denis Klopper, the new high-quality 300-page large format hard cover 60 Years of Porsche Racing at Kyalami covers Porsche’s significant competition history at South Africa’s Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit.

A Porsche 550 RS won the circuit’s opening 9 Hour race in 1961. Its successors not only dominated that race ever since, but the Kyalami Porsche story spreads far further too. 60 Years of Porsche Racing celebrates the Porsche cars, engines and drivers that raced throughout the Circuit’s great 60-year history. The book covers all the 9 Hour Porsches, so many of them winners, sports cars, 944 Turbo Cup and others, and even Formula 1 successes at Kyalami. Right through to the most recent international race last year.

60 Years of Porsche Racing at Kyalami contains over 450 splendid images, most of which have never previously been published. Each has its own detailed captions in both English and German. The book also homes in on four specific Kyalami Porsche race cars via a special photo shoot. The book’s statistics include all Kyalami Porsche races, car types, drivers, engine numbers and results. Legendary local motoring scribes also tell their unique Porsche Kyalami memories.

The new 60 Years of Porsche Racing at Kyalami book is limited to 500 Copies of a hard cover large format Standard Edition at R2,195.00. 100 numbered copies of the hard cover Collector’s Edition come with a dust cover. Collector’s Edition buyers can choose two exclusive photographic prints and available book numbers. All copies are signed by the author, while Collectors copies come with a personalised message, and are co-signed by Toby Venter at R3,795.00.

A world class publication, 60 Years of Porsche Racing at Kyalami is in its final stages of production and set for dispatch through the second quarter of 2024. A very limited number of SA Motorsport Memories’ epic book, Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit – 60 Years of Memories also remain available. Prices include free delivery within South Africa.
