Larry Wilson Collection 2017 .…If you missed this event last year you are in luck because we are doing this again on the same weekend this year…July 29th…The catch…to be assured a spot you must be a 2017 Zonefest registrant. Yes, Zonefest participants will be able to register the 1st week of June on club registration. Non-Zonefest attendees will be able to register the 2nd week of June. Last year this event sold out in 3 days and while we have more entry slots this year, we expect this event to sell out quickly. The cost is expected to be $35.00 again and includes lunch. The Larry Wilson Collection is one of the best private collections of Porsches and Porsche memorabilia, rivaling the Collier museum, Gunnar workshop and Brumos Collection as a bucket list destination for Porsche lovers. Located in a bunker-like environment near Palm Beach International Raceway (PBIR), watch for registration instructions on the Z12 website and E-mail blasts.

Oktoberfast is coming….Same great event…Different weekend…This is Zone 12’s other Club Race…(the 1st being the 48 hours of Sebring) and will be held on October 27-29 at Daytona International Speedway.
