For the 18th year in a row, the Porsche Owners Club and the Porsche Club of America joined at the California Festival of Speed 29-31 March for a weekend-long series of racing excitement, car shows and action for Porsche enthusiasts.
The three-day exhibition hosts every year autocrosses, swap meets, parts vendors, car corrals, club racing, time trials, a Porsche 356 timeline display and many other activities making the festival a bucket list event for any Porsche aficionado.
