The vintage car races event at the Sonoma Raceway organized by Classic Sports Racing Group was fantastic!  There was a total of 16 Mercedes-Benz showed up, including a 1957 300SL Convertible, which was an eye catcher at the corral.  Most of the SFBA members were the 1st timers, and Joel Camarda, our vintage car racing grur, guided us and answered all of our questions regarding the race and the Sonoma Raceway. Most of us had taken the advantage of the rides by signning up our favorite vintage race cars ranged from Lotus to Ford GT40 MK II. And at the same time, by knowingly that our gererous donation will help in support of the Speedway Children's Charities. Personally, I had signed up for the 1965 Louts Super 7, Mr. Robert S. Davis, the driver and the owner of this fine vintage race car. The ride was breathtaking, my whole body was glued to the back of the seat when he stepped on the gas pedal, I could feel the G Force at work on every turn at excessive speed. The downside of this exhilarating ride was that I wasn't able to have the same experience with my SLK "at full throttle" on the public road when heading back home, LOL!
