Upcoming Events

These events are long gone.

Southwest Region Meeting

The August "board meeting" for the Southwest region of the FCA will be held on August 16th, 1994 at 6:30pm. This will be a special meeting because we plan to present for adoption the by-laws for our wildly successful new region.

The meeting will be held at the Newport Imports Ferrari dealership, located at 3100 W. Pacific Coast Highway in Newport Beach. Contact Alan Woodard for more information.

The September meeting will take us to Ogner Motorcars Ferrari dealership in Woodland Hills, located at 21301 Ventura Blvd. At this meeting we plan to actually adopt the by-laws and elect officers.

In October, Dick Marconi has graciously offered to host our meeting at the facilities of his Marconi Automotive Museum in Orange County on October 25th.

Many of you will recognize the Marconi name from the 348 Challenge Series where John Marconi, Dick's son, is the current points leader. The Marconi family has an extensive racing history in Southern California and their 24,000 square foot facility houses a full racing shop, a car collection of over 30 cars, and a large motorcycle collection.

In addition to the use of his facility, Mr. Marconi is also providing an informal dinner catered from a local Italian restaurant. This is more than a meeting, it's an event! All members of the Southwest region are invited, however, we need you to RSVP to Judd Goldfeder at by October 5th 1994 so that dinner can be properly planned.

Exotic Track Event in Phoenix

We have recently been invited to participate in an interesting event with another car club. The Exotic Car Club of America, Arizona Chapter is having a track event on September 17th and 18th at Phoenix International Raceway. On Saturday the 17th there will be professional Indy car drivers providing instruction on a course that combines some turns of the high banked oval with the in-field road course at Phoenix Raceway. On Sunday, the event moves to the campus of Arizona State University and becomes an autocross.

The cost is only $150 if received before September 1st and that includes one year's membership to the Exotic Car Club of America. Drivers must drive their own vehicles and wear a helmet rated SA-85 or better.

Hotel accommodations are available through the Holiday Inn Holidrome at a special group rate of $75/night, including a full buffet breakfast. It is suggested that you arrive Friday night for a driver's meeting and race course instructions at the hotel. Call Gay Mullen at (602) 482-7460 to make hotel reservations.

The FCA has never participated in any Exotic Car Club of America events so we can't vouch for their quality but this one sounds fun. Contact Scott Reiner or write to the club at 7049 E. Tanque Verde #336, Tucson, AZ 85715 for more information.

Ferraris in Westwood

Westwood Village hosts an annual Arts & Crafts Show on the streets of the trendy and interesting Westwood Village. This year's show will be held on Saturday and Sunday, October 8th and 9th and the Board members of the Westwood Village Association have invited the Southwest Region of the FCA to incorporate a Ferrari car show into the event.

The cars will be displayed Sunday along two blocks of Kinross Avenue, crossing Westwood Blvd. The region will have a booth at the show and we encourage all members to bring their cars out for a post-Monterey viewing. We expect this show to become an annual event so let's kick off the year in grand style (there should be no lack of freshly-restored Ferraris).
