Fourth Annual Carrera Fiesta at the Monterey (Historics) Reunion

The Fourth Annual Carrera Fiesta at the Monterey (Historics) Reunion will be celebrated on August 14 at the Baja Cantina and Grill, 7166 Carmel Valley, Rd., Carmel, CA. The new time is 5:00-8:00 PM.


Unlike previous years, this fiesta will be in the evening, after the racing at Laguna Seca is over. Bill Hemmer and Carson Scheller are working with the proprietor – a great racing aficionado – on the event. Tickets, which include Mexican comida, are on sale now for only $25. At the door they will be $30.

Please let Bill Hemmer know if you plan to attend.

1. Payments for the tickets ($25) should go to Bill Hemmer.

2. The owner of the Kellogg Motorsports archives has authorized us, those at the Fiesta, to be the first group to see the restored in-car 16 mm color film from Ray Crawford's Lincoln during the Pan Am in 1951. The film has been carefully resored and transferred to DVD. We will discuss the film and make comments on how best to developed it for eventual public distribution. (See my prior announcement in CARRERA NEWS for the details.)

3. David Hinton, the leader of Predator Racing and Pan Am vet, has invited everyone to come by their tent in the paddock at Laguna Seca on August 14-15. If you wear you Carrera hat, shirt, etc., he will treat you to a cool drink. Dave's red E-type Carrera car will on display, too.
