Coronado Vintage Races...Update

Well I was trying to get a discount code for people to use when purchasing tickets, however they are not set up to handle our Porsche Corral group this year. Some suggestions were made and hopefully next year they will be able to set it up in advance. General Admission tickets can be purchased from:

Now to more news on the event.

Mark Maynard, the "Wheels" Editor for the UT sent this info to me. Check it out!

The Boxster Spyder has been confirmed for Maynard's Garage at the Coronado Speedfest, also the Audi R8 5.2 Spyder and a 2011 GT500 convertible with performance pack.

Mark always has a tent in the vendor area, called "Maynard's Garage." Go by and say hi...I'm sure he would love to talk cars with you. He has the "RPM" section on Friday in the UT as well as the "Wheels" section on Saturday. He is also doing a blog about all kinds of car stuff at:

Also comedian, actor and Internet sensation Adam Carolla is making a repeat performance at the Coronado Speed Festival. Carolla will race his Bob Sharp Racing 1973 Datsun 610 B Sedan Trans Am Race Car, a car he debuted at the event in 2009.

Carolla’s Datsun 610 was built by Bob Sharp Racing and was the back-up car to the B-Sedan team car that Elliott Forbes Robinson drove to the 1976 championship. The car was toured to Datsun showrooms in the Northeast and never saw any track action until it started vintage racing in 1992.

Like many other celebs, Carolla’s love of cars is nothing new. Growing up, he drove a battered Datsun pickup while he worked as a carpenter. He tried to fix up a Datsun Z-car in his driveway but didn’t have the time or money to do the job properly. Today, Carolla’s garage includes the very first BRE race car, a Datsun 2000 roadster, the Valvoline Trans Am Datsun 510, the Paul Newman IMSA GT 300zx and other Datsun racers. He also boasts a collection of vintage V12 Lamborghinis and a V12 Ferrari. He's turning into a real car collector.
