Fiesta New Mexico @ Santa Fe and Taos

New Mexico ROADRUNNER PCA is excited to host the 41st consecutive Fiesta New Mexico, May 21 through May 24, 2015. We are inviting all of you to join us for a true New Mexico experience in the spectacular beauty of New Mexico.

Santa Fe and Taos are located in Northern New Mexico at an altitude of 7,000 ft. with high sub-alpine temperatures ranging from 40 to 95 degrees in the summer and 34 to 50 degrees in winter. Santa Fe is our first destination, with a renowned art scene, great shopping and wonderful restaurants. Taos is home to Mable Dodge Luhan, Kit Carson, Millicent Rogers and the historical Taos Pueblo.

The kickoff will be Thursday, May 21 in Santa Fe, headquartered at The Lodge at Santa Fe. Friday, the 22nd, we will caravan on a spirited drive on the High Road to Taos. Our headquarters in Taos will be at The Sagebrush Inn. Built in 1920 it still retains much of its rustic charm, while having been remodeled to provide modern, comfortable, clean accommodations, including indoor plumbing.

This year’s Fiesta New Mexico will be a casual New Mexico experience, so reserve a little extra space in your Porsche for your cowboy boots. We will be 2-stepin’ to live music at the Sagebrush.

Mark your 2015 calendar for May 21- 24 and let us show you our beloved “Land of Enchantment”. Register here.

The location for this event is Alameda Point. We use a decommissioned runway on the former Alameda Navel Air Station. The site doesn’t have a formal address, but if you set your GPS to the intersection of Main Steet and Navy Way in Alameda, CA, you’ll get there. Just past that intersection, Main Street dead ends at a chain link fence with a gate. Access to the site is through that gate.

First car on course: 9:00
Note: All times are estimated.

Cars will be tech inspected in the paddock before the drivers meeting or on grid.

If you don’t have a permanent number already assigned by GGR or Zone 7, a car number will be automatically assigned to you. If you’ve run with us before, you’ll likely be assigned the same number.

A list of driver/car# will be emailed to the registrants one day before the event.

Mammoth 3 day Porsche Tour with Sequoia Region @ Mammoth Lakes, CA
Jun 19 @ 7:00 am – Jun 21 @ 4:00 pm
Mammoth 3 day Porsche Tour with Sequoia Region @ Mammoth Lakes, CA

Experience the open roads and breathtaking scenery of The Eastern High Sierra in your Porsche with other Porsche enthusiasts.

Who: All PCA members, all Regions invited.

Where: Mammoth Lakes, CA. in the scenic Eastern High Sierra Visit Mammoth

Registration: There is a $10 fee for the GGR tour down.  This is a “pay as you go” event and you’ll need to make your own hotel arrangements.

Summer is upon us, which happily means our FunRun to Mammoth Lakes and the Eastern Sierra is coming up on Fri, Sat, Sun, June 19-20-21. This is an over-nighter [Fri & Sat] to the fabulously scenic back side of Yosemite. Judged “Drive of the Year”, this is such a popular outing that 2015 marks its 6th year! Pictures are worth a thousand words, so here is the link to website with event details: http://www.mammothporschetour.com.

Our GGR group will leave from East Bay by 7 o’clock Fri. morning and 4 hrs. later we’ll be at Crane Flat Gas Station, just beyond the entry to Yosemite Park. Then it’s up hiway 120 to a lake side picnic spot before going over Tioga Pass to Lee Vining, arriving at Mammoth Village in mid-afternoon. Look at the web site schedule to see what happens once we get there. And scroll to the bottom of the website for a map of the Scenic Loop tour in the high country. The Drive on Saturday is a not-to-be-missed thrill, so here’s your chance to get out of town for a long weekend to see some new territory, have fun really driving your Porsche, and hanging with new Porsche friends.

Cars from other California and Arizona PCA Regions will be converging on Mammoth Lakes; we won’t be alone! We plan to caravan with Diablo Region cars for the Friday portion; we’ll soon provide more logistical details to GGR members who register on MotorsportsReg. If you don’t have an account on Motorsports, click on this link to get one: www.motorsportsreg.com, and if you already have an account then use this direct link to register for the Drive. The usual GGR FunRun fee is 10 bucks per car, and is non-refundable. If you have questions, email ggr.touring@gmail.com.

This Drive is 4 weeks away, and time is of the essence to make lodging reservations and to obtain discounted room rates. The Westin Monache www.westin.com/mammoth has a cut-off date of May 25. Or until all rooms (deluxe studio suite) are booked. Reservations can be made by calling  1 (760) 934-0454 sales office and referencing Mammoth High Altitude Tour.
