June 4th & 5th were some exciting days for me — I got to spend more time out at the inaugural Spokane Festival of Speed than I thought I would!
I was super, super excited that the vintage races that SOVREN puts on every year were coming to Spokane County Raceway — a nice track that’s literally fifteen minutes from where I live. I knew from the second I learned of it that I *had* to get out there to check it out!
Lucky for me, work cooperated, allowing me to spend more time out at the track that I imagined I could! Definitely glad for some slow days every once in a while, haha.
Seeing as how I took a bunch of photos, I figured I’d split them into the two days and share my favorites.
Day One (Saturday)
Saturday was lucky for me — turns out my friends from the Porsche Club were there! I knew the Porsche Club was there but I wasn’t sure if I’d recognize anyone. (I’m really bad with people sometimes…. Heh.)
It was exciting to meet new people and then get a real treat — a ride along during the parade laps on the track! I got to go along with one of the great Porsche guys in his Boxster — Definitely a highlight of the day!
Nobody can knock Boxsters, I already felt this way and the ride showed me how right I was — the car really felt like she was on rails. She stuck very well and only got squirrelly once. He was driving pretty spirited. Not only was listening to the Boxster fantastic with the top down, but we were behind a 1987 911 Turbo, which was also quite beautiful to listen to.
The rest of the day I spent hanging out, talking cars and taking plenty of photos. Oh, and very much so enjoying the first absolutely gorgeous weekend we’ve had!
