From November 8th to 11th 2007, Porsche enthusiasts will gather for an unrepeatable event. The Great Ocean Road Escape is four days of fun, food and driving as 150 Porsches weave their way back and forth along one of the world's most spectacular and dramatic roads.

After a day of tackling some of the most rugged and curvaceous coastline in the world, you will return each night to the comfort of sophisticated Mantra Erskine Beach Resort - home to historic Erskine House.

To reserve your place or for more information, please contact Pamela Ward at Porsche Cars Australia on 03 9473 0911 or email wardp@porsche.com.au.

Invites for this event were sent out to people who have participated in previous Porsche events about 6 weeks ago. As it's strictly limited to 150 cars it has not surprisingly sold out. My entry went in about 6 weeks ago.  :)

Looks good.  Sounds like the rest of us would need to kill someone and then buy a Porsche to get in.

I hope they have something like it next year.  ;) ;)

unfortunately that's very doubtful. the last "Porsche Classic" was in 2002 and other than a touring event at Mt. Buller last year there has been nothing (on this scale) since.  :mad:

edit: only 1 more working day before I head over to Mexico on Wednesday  :thumbsup:

All the results from the various driving tests here: www.rallyresults.com.au/gore2007

We finished 66th outright of 157 cars and 2nd in class in the driving tests.  :thumbsup: Don't ask about the regularity or observation sections though.  :doh:

Note the little RENSC that was 10th outright on section 22 - the reverse section. All that turbo power does those MHOS no good backwards.  :D

Did you pass? :p

Backwards... as in downhill?

As a side note, what a horrible acronym for such a lovely outing!  GORE :darkside:

No, backwards as in reversing through the cones.

You're not the first one to comment on that.
