The October event will focus on Paramount Ranch, the Santa Monica Mountains location that hosted 5 sports car races and 2 stock car races in 1956 and '57 and San Fernando Dragstrip, where from 1955 to 1969, local and sometimes nationally known drivers put on some spectacular shows.
The Racing History Series program begins at 10:30 AM on Saturday, October 12th with an hour and a half slide show. film and panel discussion about Paramount Ranch. After a lunch break to enjoy some of the gourmet food trucks in the parking lot, the 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM segment features San Fernando Dragstrip, again with a slide show, film and panel discussion.
Panelists will include many who raced at these iconic locations, telling stories never before heard about their experiences, a rare opportunity to hear from those were there.
After the event, there will be an autograph and personal "meet and greet" session as well as some noted photographers and authors on hand offering their wares and some memorabilia for sale.

PCA/Grand Prix Region - "Wrightwood the Wrong Way" - June 22, 2019

Many thanks for the photo contributions by Linda Obrien, Jaime Rodriguez, Jerry Maize, Nathaniel Dever and Steven & Marcia Ishii,

Many more thanks for our tour leaders, Omar Menchavez and Alan Johnson!

After the success of last year’s ”Wrightwood the Wrong Way” tour, the Grand Prix Region returned with a different stop. The large turnout required that the tour be divided into 3 groups. Departing Redlands at 492 feet and climbing over the Onyx Summit at 8400 feet then descending to Big Bear Lake and Lake Arrowhead, the groups cruised through the San Bernardino Mountains then climbed back up to the Strawberry Peak Fire Lookout Tower at 6400 feet.
Though most of the Forest Service Lookout towers in Southern California have been closed, there are still four that are manned in the fire season. Strawberry Peak is the only one that is paved road accessible, and the Lookout Staff was happy to explain their coverage, equipment and reporting protocols. On most days it is easy to see peaks 70 mile away. On really clear days one can spot Catalina Island almost 100 miles away.
Continuing safely on the Rim of the World Highway, the drive was on the mountain side not the cliff side which gives the road its name. Twisting and turning on the descent to the crossing at Interstate-15, the tour then climbed back up to Wrightwood at 6000 feet. At Wrightwood which straddles the San Andreas Fault no earthquakes were felt and lunch was enjoyed at the Grizzly Café. All that climbing really works up an appetite.
