Sports Car Open

Sports Car Open

by | Jul 26, 1989

The first annual Sports Car Open, sponsored by Puget Sound Tire and our club, was a great success. On May 20th 110 drivers and hundreds of spec­tators enjoyed an open track day blessed with sunshine. The BMW and Porsche clubs each had 48 drivers, with the bal­ ance coming from the Alfa club, SCCA and IRDC.

Two pro driving schools took part and several tire manufacturers had tires available to test. Vendor booths dispensed information.

Denny Organ was event chairperson and  did a fine job.  The event went smoothly and remained safe. Joe and Candi  Stubblefield  of  Puget  Sound Tire were the other workhorses.

One of the most enjoyable things was getting to know some of the people from the other car clubs, especially the Porsche club. Nice people . But it seems that automobile enthusiasts are almost always nice people.

Plan to attend next year. But register early, it’s bound to sell out.
