Carrera of the Americas – Saturday

Apparently there are benefits to public speaking. After my recent presentation to the Hill Country Region of the Porsche Club of America, I snagged a very kind invite to attend the 2014 “Carrera of the Americas,” a PCA race weekend held at Circuit of the Americas. I went out there today and snapped a few photos I thought you might like.

It was a beautiful day for racing.
