Default The Wine and Country Vintage and Classic Car Races

As many of you guys know, I attended the Wine and Country vintage car races at Infineon Raceway once again at Sears Point. I thought the Ferrari Track Day was awesome until I reached to venue to be greeted with an exclusive Porsche parking, a Ferrari grand stand and what not. I had lot of fun but got little time to post my experience here. Some snapshots:

- A shotgun drive in a race spec Mustang (owned by a friends team) that took me around track at over 120mph.
- Mr. Kingfisher at the venue sporting a Force India F1 team shirt and cap (see pictures)
- An Alfa Romeo 8C 2600 driven like it should be.
- The Formula 5000 races featuring a 50+ year old guy who could barely walk placing himself 6th on the podium.
- blah blah blah blah, enjoy the pictures:

Nice pictures Kiran! Some observations:

1. That 935 Turbo is quite rare!

2. What does the numberplate read on that Martini-liveried 911?

And there are a lot of very nice cars apart from these! Will take a high-res set of this too from you!
