Hello everyone, I've been planning this event for over 6 months and spent hundreds of hours getting to this point to let you all know about this.

This is The Porsche Mille 2011 Mille 2011 |

Our goal is to set a Guinness World Record for the largest parade of Porsches ever. The West Coast always had the best Porsche events, until this one.

• 60th Anniversary of Porsche in the USA
• 51st Anniversary of the Peachstate Porsche Club of America
• 25th anniversary of the Porsche 944 Turbo
• 25th anniversary of the Porsche 959

The Porsche Mille is set to be a historic event and gathering of Porsche automobiles at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, GA on November 5th 2011. The Mille will provide multiple activities for Porsche owners, enthusiasts and their families. The cornerstone of the event is an attempt at a Guinness World Record with the largest number of Porsches in a single parade.

-We have asked PCNA to bring some cars from the Porsche museum

-Fantastic marketing opportunities for sponsors and vendors; very focused market group
-After parade, we will fill the entire 1.5 mile oval track with Porsches and take photos, including aerial photos with helicopter.

UPDATE: PCNA has promised to bring some of the cars they are showing at Rennsport Reunion to us. That should equate to some truly historic race cars that will be in the parade and on display, maybe even running the autocross!

I am leaving Roswell about 7:30, want to meet along I-75 somewhere about 8? I could get off at say 14th St in midtown and then get back on the same ramp further down.
If that time works.

I'm interested in meeting up - 75/85 somewhere in town works just fine. I've sent an email out to a group of Atlanta Pelican and other Porsche car guys to see if any of them are interested as well. I referred them to this thread as well as the RennSouth forum post. We can firm up plans within the next two days or so.

Sounds good to me I will watch for the post here. A nice line of P- cars rolling down 75 would be a great way to start the day.

hey everyone, I sincerly appreciate everyone coming out for the event. It was a tremendous effort and while the event had some issues, it still went off and we still had a great time. This was a first time event, they always have some hiccups. Sorry to anyone who is upset with me and the event. I really tried to give the Porsche community something different to do. Thanks again for coming out!

We had a great time, any hiccups were no big deal to us. Hope it can happen again sometime. I do appreciate the work u put in.
I would bet the negative folks are in the minority.
