It’s hard to follow the Goodwood Festival of Speed with a stateside event. We can’t, in good conscience, compare, but that’s not for a lack of impressive machinery at the Sonoma Speed Festival. From May 30th through June 2nd, an incredible fleet of cars descended upon the iconic Sonoma Raceway, formerly known as both Infineon and Sears Point.
Roadtrip ideas usually come about after a fair amount of beverages. Usually some time in the early hours of the morning and usually surrounded by good friends. Sometime in the depths of winter, dreaming of summer days and classic racecars, a few mates and myself came up with the fantastic idea to roadtrip 8 hours from Germany, rent a huge house to sleep us all and enjoy the Le Mans Classic. Basically an epic automotive pilgrimage.
