It was two weekends ago – May 17-19 – that Sonoma Raceway (nee Infineon, nee Sears Point) hosted the 27th Annual Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival (nee several other monikers).
No matter what it’s called, it’s still the grand annual party thrown by RRDC member Steve Earle – this year with more than 350 historic racecars in 15 groupings, stretching their legs around the up-down-and-around 2.52 miles that comprises Sonoma’s pre-NASCAR raceway.
A number of our guys and gals were in attendance, and some even drove. Chris McAllister exercised a couple of immaculate sports racers including a Gulf Mirage M6 plus the beauty below:

Peter Giddings did his best imitation of Tazio Nuvolari from his pre-Auto Union days (Tazio’s, not Peter’s):

Bob Earle presented “The Phil Hill Trophy” to honored guest Phil Reinhart.
