The Fuel Run Rally is limited to 100 “hyper, exotic and supercars” and 200 participants – kicks off the official start of the 2019 Monterey Car Week with a day-long, 250-mile road rally from Malibu to Monterey on Wednesday, August 14th.
PFS is a proud sponsor of the 2019 Corsa America Rally, the brainchild of our longtime client Thomas Heinrichs, who serves as Corsa’s CEO. It is is one of the largest exotic sports car rally series in the United States, with more than 100 vehicles participating.
Many exotic car drivers won’t put 6,000 miles on the odometer during their entire ownership of the car. Ed Bolian will be driving that distance in his manual-transmission Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640 this month. He’ll join 25 others in the Lux Rally, an all-inclusive, eight-day experience-driving event from Nashville to Las Vegas.
1,000 miles over five days, all arranged by friends Rich and Jean Taylor, who started their company, Vintage Rallies, in 1993 with the New England 1000. They host three other events: the South West Passage, Mountain Mille and Texas 1000.
For the first time, Premier Financial Services is a sponsor of the Corsa America, which gets rolling in New York City on May 4th and ends in San Diego on May 13th.
There are so few roads in scarcely-populated West Texas that we can’t do an event there every year without repeating parts of the route. So every five years or so, after we’ve all forgotten the route details, we shift Texas 1000 from the picturesque Hill Country of Central Texas to the monumental landscape West of the Pecos.
Of the three dozen or so driver’s who will take part in the first Drive Toward a Cure California Adventure, Dick Cupp might be especially enthusiastic. He’s entered his 1960 Porsche 356 Super 90 in the inaugural April 28-30 event.
To do something completely different, after a dozen years rallying around Western Virginia and West Virginia, we moved Mountain Mille 300 miles South. The rally took place just a week after Hurricane Matthew, but the storm affected coastal North Carolina and not the western mountains. Even better, the weather for the rally was perfect.
If the sounds of the screaming engines and screeching tires from a vintage automobile rally are still echoing in your ears, it’s a safe bet you were not on the six-day Rolls-Royce Owners Club (RROC) Fall Tour through some of the most beautiful costal and inland areas near San Luis Obispo.
