Fleet Week Coronado Speed Festival salutes the nation’s military, celebrates Shelby American marque at 13th annual “Race at the Base.” It’s recognized as the birthplace of naval aviation, but on Sept. 25-26, Naval Air Station North Island will highlight a different type of machine as 250 prestigious historic racecars gather for the 13th annual Fleet Week Coronado Speed Week Festival.
Known as the “Race at the Base,” the Fleet Week Coronado Speed Festival features nine different race groups divided according to make, age and horsepower. The cars race at high speeds on a spectator-friendly 1.7-mile course constructed in mere days on the runways and taxiways of the military base. The track is set against the stunning backdrop of San Diego Bay.
This year’s marque will celebrate the rich race heritage of Shelby American cars, from the legendary Cobra and the Daytona Coupe to the GT40 and GT350. These amazing vehicles have always pushed the envelope of performance and promise a thrill for event spectators.
Again this year the Porsche Club will have a "Hospitality Tent" with breakfast items, snacks, and refreshments during the day, however no lunch will be offered. The tent will be open from 8 AM to 3 PM both days. We will also again this year have Porsche Corral Parking. For Corral parking passes all you need to do is: send a "stamped self addressed envelope" requesting a pass. One pass is good for one car and is good for both days.
