    RENNSPORT VI through JZG's lens............my last Hurrah.

    Returned ealier today from several intense, incredible, but always supremely enjoyable days at Laguna Seca taking in the sixth iteration of celebrating all things PORSCHE...................made even more special in 2018 since this is also the 70th year of the marque's existence.

    Many photos to post and stories to tell, but first I have to download and process several SD cards worth of images, pick the best, send some to John Dilger for possible inclusion in the ESSES and then, begin to make heads & tails out of what I consider to be the finest of the couple of thousand images on hand and decide how to best arrange, present and post it all.

    I ask for your patience, because I will require a few days to get back into the swing of things and complete the task, since I admit to being out of practice ................. but I promise & committ to finish this project and present Rennsport VI as I saw it through my viewfinder, for those who, for one reason or another simple were not able to make it to California this time around.

    Attached, a teaser sample from Saturday at the Corkscrew.

    See you all soon,

    Best regards,

    JZG

    It was great to see you and glad that you are delighted with your move out of California. I do miss my apple fritter, though. Oh yea, you too.

    Thumbs up

    Mauricio,

    I'm afraid that's the wrong John...

    The above pic is of my colleague John Dilger, the president and ESSES editor of this club... and one of our photographers...

    John Z Goriup has his own great and well earned credentials in this club, and an excellent photographer and 'captionest' for his wonderful photos...

    Cheers,
    Chuck
