CALIFORNIA FESTIVAL of SPEED! Call to Action!
The Zone 8 California Festival of Speed (CFoS) has been scheduled for April 8th through the 10th. To learn more, visit the CFoS website at http://www.zone8.org/events/speedfestival.php. Check out this slide show to see some of the action from last year! http://youtu.be/h6tDpJ50qa8.
The main event! Club Racers, registration opens on February 22nd at http://register.pca.org/. For all Time Trial drivers (i.e. qualified DE drivers), registration opens February 28th at https://cfos.motorsportreg.com/. This year the Porsche Owners Club is joining us so we should have even more racing action over the weekend! This will make for an even bigger and better CFoS for everyone!
We need volunteers for various activities beginning with setup on Thursday April the 7th, activities on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and teardown on Sunday afternoon. We ask you to work 4 hour shifts for things like: credentials, traffic control, hot pit, track tours, placing cars in the timeline, membership booth and goodie store. Zone 8 has over 13,300 primary and associate members. Our goal is to have at least 300 volunteers. It would be great if we meet our goal. By volunteering you have a chance to meet up with old friends and make new ones! Get a group of your PCA friends and volunteer as a team, caravan to the event, and have fun. Remember the success of the CFoS is fueled by volunteers and the best way to enjoy the event is by helping out!
- As an added incentive, Zone 8 will once again share Festival profits with the regions based on the level of volunteerism from each region.
- As a thank you we have free parking for all volunteers and a gift for anyone working at least one shift.
- If you wish to volunteer we need your email address, contact phone number (cell and home) and the name of your Region. To volunteer or if you have any questions please contact Janice Witteried at [email protected].
This year the Saturday Timeline will feature 911 Turbos! If you are interested in displaying your 911 Porsche Turbo in the timeline, please contact Dick Douglas at [email protected]. I am sure you have seen the Timeline display during the last few CFoS’s. They have been some of the best parts of the weekend every year!
Track Tours on all three days. The track tours are a low speed tour in your car around the speedway track during the track lunch break. Parade laps do not require helmets and are intended to let you take photos and experience the speedway from the racing driver’s perspective!
Sunday will include a Tire Rack Street Survival School hosted by the BMW Club. If you have a new driver in your household, you may want to enroll them in this fantastic opportunity to make them a safer driver! To learn more visit http://streetsurvival.org/. To register go here http://tinyurl.com/jxsek3y. This WILL sell out!
If you’re not a driver, there are plenty of activities for you and your family. Vendor Row will include clothing, gadgets, parts, toys, tools… and lots of other good stuff! Have some racing fun with Driving Simulators and Slot Cars for the big and little kids! Food Trucks have been a hit at the last two CFoS’s and this year there will be six truck to fill your tummy while you enjoy the Time Trials, Club Racing, and Porsche Owner’s Club races.
Porsche Corral. Exclusively Porsches! Put your car on display in front of hundreds of Porsche enthusiasts. Each model will have their own corral. Just show up, we will be ready for you.
