PCA    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
"You put on a WONDERFUL event!  Flagstaff was a great choice for the host city, the Little America Hotel staff were friendly and the rooms were large and quiet.  You did an outstanding job and thank you for a very pleasant experience."
Jim & Becky Loving - Sierra Madre, Calif., 2007 Cayman. 

"Just a brief note to recognize your efforts in sincerely setting the bar for a fantastic Escape to Flagstaff. All of the events were consistent in quality, the speakers were great and the long weekend flowed flawlessly. Possibly even more than others, I can appreciate how much work and detail go into driving the success of an event like this, and my hat is off to you in setting the bar for this event and successfully motivating the broad team to step up in its successful execution. Well done and thanks for providing us with an exceptional experience!" Frank J. Grimmelmann.

Hurley Haywood talks about Rennsport history
AutoBlog    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Don't get us wrong; we're thrilled there are collectors with the means and patience required to hide vintage race cars in climate-controlled warehouses for decades. History needs its preservationists, but competition vehicles are meant to compete. Their sheet metal requires heat from a track-day sun as much as their engines require fuel. That's part of what makes the annual Rennsport Reunion such an important event. Porsche owners from all corners of the globe bring out their race cars for plenty of track time as well as a low-key paddock car show. More
