Default Monterey Historics

How many Rennlisters will be at the Historics this weekend? Porsched is the featured marque.

You cheated!

I'm blitzing up there in my C2 Thursday night with my 7yo boy, staying at the Monterey Bay Lodge off Cannery Row.

I am so stoked to hear the 917-30 twin turbo 12 cylinder 1600hp monster scream down the straight!!!

Are you guys parking in the corral?
I'm trying to swing a ticket for that as it sold out before I could order.

Are you guys going to the Friday night reception party?

Am staying at the Cypress Inn in Carmel. Will be at the drive on Thursday and may be helping out at the corral on Saturday. We should find some way to get the Rennlisters together.

Will be driving up on Fri morning from LA. Should be there sometime late morning/early afternoon. Will be camping at Laguna Seca in a tent next to my 911. Would love to meet fellow rennlisters there.

Hey, I think we met before at the wheel place up around LA a few months ago.

I've got the '99 silver C2.

I'll pm you my cell and we can catch up there.

Funny, usually I also camp in my Eurovan in October for ALMS but staying hotel this time.....

I went down to Laguna Seca yesterday, and took some photos Click here to see them.

I also had a chance to do some hot laps in a Panamera there as well, and to do a test drive in the Panamera.

Click here to see the hot laps with David Donahue (Mark's son) driving

Orient, you weren't driving the Panamera right?
More like test-ride?

That corkscrew drop is amazing, especially hustling with that big car!

All I can say is "WOW", that is incredible. The history, the cars. They are beautiful!
