Coronado Vintage Races 2011...Replay

Another "Runway Rumble" has come and passed. San Diego Fleetweek hosted the "Race at the Base," also called the Coronado Speed Festival. This is one of the premier vintage events held on the West Coast and the 14th edition. It featured 250 of the world's most pedigreed vintage racecars chosen to compete on the basis of their historic significance.

Also displayed this year at the entrance of the event were a multitude of current and historic Navy jets and helicopters celebrating the Centennial of Naval Aviation (1911-2011).

The San Diego Region of the Porsche Club of America again held a hospitality tent for it's members with a Porsche parking corral located next to the track. Over 275 Porsche parking passes were sent out with around 150 cars each day showing their best. The most overheard remark by Sunday afternoon was, "We can't wait till next year to do it all again." Two of our sponsors this year were "Hemmings Motor News" supplying the windshield profile cards and "Along For The Ride" supplying the ear plugs to muffle that wonderful sound.
