Pacific Northwest Historic Auto Races

Pacific Northwest Historics

Each year, there are many great cars at this 3 day, premier Vintage Racing event at Pacific Raceways in Kent. There are numerous Alfa Romeos and plenty of other great marques. This year they are featuring the Ford Mustang on it’s 50th year plus the special guest will be incredible Parnelli Jones!

There usually are posted times when you can get autographs from the special guest, and I am bringing one of my racing books down to ensure it gets Parnelli Jones added to it. See all of you at the track!

When: July 4, 5, 6 2014

Where: Pacific Raceways 31001 144th Ave SE, Kent 98042

Half Lap Reservations!

Half Lap Reservations! This year, the NWARC Half Fast Lap of Washington will be slower than nor- mal. On September 13, 14, 15, we will be touring and enjoying the scenic San Juan Islands. We’ll start by taking the Ferry to Lopez Island for stops at a Museum, produce stand / store, then head for a BBQ spot at a club mem- ber’s home. Next, we catch the inner island ferry across to Orcas Island to wander the twisty roads on our way to North Beach Inn. The North Beach Inn will be our place for both nights and the each night has options for fires on the beach, wine drinking, and laughter. Sunday morning has us taking a short boat ride to Point Doughty for a visit then back to the North Beach Inn. Next is an island drive that takes us throughout Orcas with stops and views at a few places before returning to our Inn. Monday gets us moving to catch the Ferry over to Friday Harbor and a tour of the back roads and fun places on San Juan Island. Though they aren’t always visible, we plan to stop at Lime Kiln State Park to see if we can spot any Orca whales. This year, a cou- ple of large pods have been seen enjoying the waters here already so we can hope they’ll join our weekend. We lunch in Friday Harbor before heading back to Anacortes on the Ferry.

Call Ruth Ann at 360-376-2660 at the North Beach Inn. Once all the North Beach Inn cabins are filled, that is our limit on who can attend... if we fill the cabins with just one couple per, we loose the spirit of camaraderie and the spirit of the Half Lap.

When: Sept 13-15

Where: San Juan Islands

Please plan early, enjoy a weekend with room mates, and then be happy you’re part of the best Alfa Romeo club around.
