Happenings Around Zone 12: Hurley Haywood Documentary in Fort Lauderdale / Revs Speaker Series in Naples (mid-Nov)
Category : News
Before we get into the upcoming events, let’s celebrate a wonderfully successful Zone 12 OktoberFast Club Race weekend at Daytona! Thanks to the OktoberFast Committee, led by Chairman Steve Williamson, and all the Volunteers who made it a thoroughly enjoyable weekend of great racing and DE action.
Speaking of racing, tickets are available for the 2019 12 Hours of Sebring / WEC 1,000 Miles of Sebring (see info below).
There will be two interesting motorsport-related events in south FL in mid-November (they’re not PCA events). One is in the Fort Lauderdale area and the other is in Naples.
Hurley Haywood’s documentary – “Hurley” – will be shown at the Fort Lauderdale Film Festival:
· Thursday, November 15 at 3 pm, at the Cinema Paradiso Hollywood
· Friday, November 16 at 9 pm, at Savor Cinema Lauderdale
Hurley will be on hand for the showings and will also be selling and signing his book.
This is the film that was originally talked about three years ago on Kickstarter and in all the press. It’s produced by Patrick Dempsey and provides an opportunity to learn about Hurley Haywood and his remarkable career on and off the track. It would be great to see the parking areas full of Porsches!
On Friday, November 16, “A Special Evening with David Hobbs and Andrew Marriott” will be held at the Revs Institute in Naples, as part of The Revs Institute Speaker Series.
Revs will host a reception, a conversation and a book signing of “Hobbo: Motor Racer, Motor Mouth” with David Hobbs and co-author Andrew Marriott, who will share anecdotes of “Hobbo’s” fascinating life as a race-car driver, television commentator and reluctant author. Marriott will explain the amusing challenges he faced while attempting to draw out pertinent life and career details from Hobbs in order to complete the book on time.
The event will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Revs Institute, 2500 S. Horseshoe Dr., Naples.
Tickets are $75 (cost of book purchase not included). Tickets are limited, non-refundable, and must be purchased in advance or by calling (239) 687-7387.
