Its that time again for our annual Sharks at Daytona fall 928 get together, held in conjunction with the OktoberFast PCA Races that run from Fri. Oct. 5th, thru Sun. 7th. After we missed on 2010 cause they were paving the track & had no race; then last year it was a torrential monsoon for three days; its now time again to show up & show out to represent the 928s!
Our Shark get together will be on Saturday October 6th, in the infield at the Daytona International Speedway.
This year both Brumos and the Melbourne Porsche dealers are co-sponsors. So there will be even more going on, as I'm sure they will be "competing" to see who has the "biggest Porsche!" So far, there will be a Concours on Sat.; Autocrossing on both Sat. & Sun. on the Go Kart track in the infield; Track Touring around the famous Daytona International Speedway, including the infield road course; and of course, the PCA racing all three days.
I plan on entering the Autocross, along with my son. So maybe we can get a group of 928ers to Autocross like we did in Sebring a few years ago? The Autocross is held on the track's dedicated "Go Kart" track, so its not just driving around a parking lot with cones. Area is marked in green on the map. Cost is $30 to enter. :burnout::burnout::burnout:
If you want to show your shark, the Concours would be a great way to represent! Or, if you want, you can just watch the PCA races, tour the garage area to see the race cars up close & personal, talk to their crews, etc. At the end of the day, we can all gather for food, fun, & 928 fellowship. :cheers:
If you've not been before, to get into the track infield(free), you just need to sign a PCA waiver & receive a wrist band outside the big tunnel in turn one, off Williamson Blvd.(area in red on the map) In the past, we've always gathered next to the Road Course section of the track(area in blue) Not sure this year with the Concours going on where we will be able to set up. I will have my 10x10 cabana set up near the Autocross track, so we can always make that the gathering spot if necessary. There is not any specific OktoberFast web site as in past years. But I'll post some links shortly for the Autocross registration & the Fla Crown PCA site too.
I've already been contacted by a several Sharkers saying they plan to attend, so Let's have a show of hands of who plans to attend this year???
