Patrick Long, along with his mentor and friend Alwin Springer, are co-Grand Marshals of this year’s Porsche Rennsport Reunion 7. Patrick has become the personification of the spirit of Rennsport Reunion, the celebration of Porsche Motorsports, past, present, and future. Patrick started racing at 8 years old, starting with karting and moving up through the ranks, living and racing in Europe. After a run for F1 and landing in a Porsche Supercup as a Junior, he got his taste for GT cars and he became a Porsche factory driver in 2004 until his retirement. But that didn’t mean hanging up his helmet. Today his calendar is filled with vintage racing, motorsports events around the world, a Porsche brand ambassedor, and his co-creation of Luftgekühlt which has become a huge success with events across the country.
