The design and color of past eras of racing seem to stand still in time. No matter how much time passes, these shapes are held dear to our hearts in a way.
The last month has definitely been filled with some cool cars. It started with a Fatlace Friday, and their pre-bimmerfest meet at the Fatlace Paddock. It was a fun filled Friday evening with great music, good people, and some milk tea. I will definitely be going to the next one on June 24 for their collab release with Mooneyes.
Next is interning everyday at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Even though most of the work is in the office, it’s nice to venture down to the pits and look at whatever cars show up that day. From trans-am racers to Porsche’s, it’s awesome to see people that share a common love of cars race at the track.
Some film from our Oregon trip will be up once I actually get the prints back from being developed. Can’t wait to share them!
Finally some coverage of the 5th annual Rennsport Reunion at Laguna Seca. As soon as I heard about this event, I knew I needed to attend. With Laguna only being 20 minutes from my housing for school, why wouldn’t I. I got up early and got there super early since I knew it was going to be a very busy event, and I’m glad I did. Even though I left after only a few hours of being there, the line of cars to come into the event was backed up for a couple of miles.
Being around this many historic Porsche’s was like walking into some sort of heaven. I wanted to spend time next to every single one, but was always pulled away by another. Also the sound and smell of the cars going out to pit lane was an event in itself. I can’t wait for next year to experience it again, but to be more prepared next time and actually charge my camera batteries. Also to hopefully have upgraded my gear by then.
One more teaser from Rennsport Reunion V this past weekend. I wish I could have stayed longer, but silly me left my camera charger back at home. This resulted in my camera being almost dead when I got there. Hopefully I’ll be better equipped next year.
Just a preview of the Rennsport Reunion V. I’m guessing this team started their weekend off pretty poorly. It was funny to see how quickly they covered the car, it was only moments of the car reaching the team tent. More Porsche awesomeness to come as I finish editing through all of them.
Finally getting around to posting up some of the pictures that I took while at the Speed Dynamics event at Thunder Hill. This was my first time being on track, and even though the weather was cold, rainy, and windy; I still had a great time being able to be this close to the cars. If I was able to do this again I definitely would.
Recently got a roll of film developed, and I’m super happy with the results. This makes me want to shoot it even more now that I’ve found a place to develop my film in a quality manner.
Great day at the Blackhawk Cars and Coffee. Even though it was cloudy and rainy, a lot of people came out to enjoy the car culture in the East Bay. Here’s a little preview of the vast amount of awesome cars their today.
Aluminum center lock from the Flying Lizard Porsche racing team. Measured 18×10 and weighed maybe 7-10 pounds.
This year my family and I were surprised when we were selected to go on a trip of our choice provided by the Jack and Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation. They make it possible for families struggling with cancer to be able to go to the place of their dreams. Since my dad had never been to Pearl Harbor, we selected to visit Oahu for a couple of days. The beauty of Hawaii, and Oahu showed itself in the first day of being there. With no rains and warm temperatures, it was something only found in dreams. The staff of the resort we were staying at were the most welcoming people ever, greeting us with open arms and leis. Tears of joy were exchanged and our fun started.
