2010 - McLaren F1 in Hilton

In January 2010 I was in Reading, UK for a product launch event for my company. This McLaren F1 race car was on display in the hotel lobby. Herve and I debated whether it was a demo or real car, but personally I think it was a T-car (spare) from 2008. See if you can figure out why it would be displayed at a hotel...

Don Garlits Racing Museum

In October 2008, my brother was in town on business and we headed to the Don Garlits Drag Racing Museum in Ocala, FL. We had never been there before and we were very impressed with the number of cars and memorabilia that Don has assembled there. It brought back a lot of memories from seeing drag racing in the 60's and 70's. There were also several cars there which I had built model car kits of when I was growing up, and some which were inpirations for Hot Wheels cars.

2004 Rennsport Reunion II - Daytona

The second Porsche Rennsport Reunion was held at the Daytona International Speedway in April 2004, and was an INCREDIBLE event. I was amazed at the number of Porsches which turned out for the event. What was so amazing to me was seeing so many historic Porsche race cars, along with the new Porsche Carrera GT ($450k worth of supercar).

Nov 2003 - The FL Citrus PCA group held a lunch in Mt Dora, followed by a visit to the Alex Job Racing garage. The pictures below were taken by Patrick, so you'll notice a lot of focus on wheels, exhaust, spoilers and other after market parts. We had a great time, saw some great cars and met with many Porsche friends.
