Good afternoon Jalops! I would like to invite everybody in Southern California, or anywhere for that matter, to this years Coronado Speed Festival. The festival takes place on the 21st and 22nd of September, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. It will all happen on Naval Base Coronado in sunny San Diego, as part of the Navy's annual fleet week.


This year is set to have some very interesting events, including a very Jalopnik friendly Playboy MX-5 Cup race.

Other events include as follows:
- Navy Open House, which features
displays the current active aircraft of
NAS North Island, as well as their
air crew and pilots
- Military Pit Stop Challenge, a timed
competition between various military
commands of all branches
- Car Club Corral, open to any and all
clubs that RSVP, and includes passes
for any of your members. It would be
fun to try and get enough Jalopnik
members together and have a "club"
Many prestigious clubs will be
attending this year.
- A car show, featuring classic muscle
cars, modern pony cars, domestic and
foreign Classics, import tuners,
European, and motorcycle classes.
Entry is 15$ and includes a t shirt plus
a chance at a trophy and a free lap
- Test drives by BMW and Volkswagen.
I'll volunteer to help teach you how to
NOT use your turn signal. You also
earn credit towards a purchase from
BMW by participating.
- Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the
Porsche 911.


It would be nice to have this event spread for everybody to know about. I hope to see a bunch of you having a good time and supporting our military, which does indeed include me. Any additional information can be found on www.coronadospeedfest.com. You may also contact me at 5135499517 or ryanconstable93@gmail.com if you are interested in setting up a group with other Jalops. I will see what we can arrange. Thank you for your time and consideration, and have a fantastic day.
