Save the date! The 2015 Festival of Speed will be at Windgate Ranch again this year on March 28th. Details will be posted on on our web site on the Annual Festival of Speed page. This is a great event every year and we're looking forward to another amazing time!
Join us for our first gathering of the new year on Saturday the 3rd! Scottsdale is the center of the car universe in January and we'll have some primo examples on display from the upcoming Arizona Concours d'Elegance. The rain has passed and the bitter cold is breaking, it'll be another great event. Maybe we'll get to see someone's new black on black 308GTB! The 308/328 has really jumped in popularity here locally in the last few months and I'm sure we'll have several showing up for their first time. I think there's a recent addition of a 512bbi sitting in a freshly built garage that needs to make an appearance as well. And I'd be willing to bet that a new blue Porsche 918 Spyder shows up too. We're expecting the birth of a La Ferrari sometime in the next four to six weeks, so hopefully we'll get to meet her next month. Is this a great car town or what?!?!?!?!
We're excited about tomorrow's December edition of the monthly Motorsports Gathering! Russo and Steele will be there to show off as we get ready for Auction Week next month. We're also scheduled to have some really special museum cars from local collections. It's going to be a really big day! With our new expanded area, we'll be on both sides of the center drive so remember - if you're showing a car, you need to enter from Scottsdale Road and come down the center drive. Watch for the guys at the end directing traffic.
Don't forget the Phoenix Children's Toy Drive and Supercar Run next Sunday the 14th. Bring an unopened toy to the meet-up at the hospital. See the details on our event page. You'll also see the Christmas Party on that page as well. Don't forget to RSVP.
Alesha and Karen are helping with the month long Diaper Drive for Crisis Nursery and they will have a spot set up Saturday at the monthly Motorsports Gathering to take collections. Please stop by and support them.
Additional info has been added to the First Saturday Motorsports Gathering page. Take a look and spread the word. We're excited about this month's event. There's more room and designated parking. Things will be new as you arrive and I'm sure there'll be some confusion. Please be patient and follow the direction of the people assisting.
Please spread the word!!!
We're expanding again!!! Starting with the December 6, 2014 event we will be be expanding and segmenting the parking lot. We'll be expanding into the south part of the parking lot, and controlling both sides of the center drive. We're going to better designate the "marque of the month section" and be more strict about the european exotic section. We'll be shifting domestic sports cars, non-exotic European cars, specialty and muscle cars into the newly established south section. See the First Saturday Motorsports Gathering page for a parking lot map, rules, and how we're attempting to classify cars.
If you're showing a car, you'll need to enter from Scottsdale road and come down the center drive. You'll be directed left or right to get you and your car to the correct display section.
If you're attending as a spectator, you can use any of the other parking lot entrances, but the display areas will be blocked off to automobile access.
