Is this likely to be attended by Alfa owners? Our cars aren't, after all, considered to be dragsters. I've never been to a car event in California. It's not that far (although out of range for Hagerty tow-it-home insurance), so would appreciate anyone's comments on whether this is worth attending.

This is a charity event with other activities going. It is not just a drag. Due to the Law enforcement agency that is going to be there, we can't say what the other events will be.

Lets say if you ever wanted to play cops and robbers and not worry about the getting caught part, that should be a clue for part of it.

It is a tax right off and will be a fun day so all cars are welcome. Including Alpha I hope.

I was already asked on a few questions on the other forums so I am relaying the Q&A.

Yes this is on the old McCullan Air force Base and the event is on June 8th 2013.

1. This is a FULL tax right off as it for charity event for the Aerospace Museum
2. No helmet is required for the race way
3. Length of speed run is 1/2 mile from a standing start
4. The winners party is a good excuse to take the Mrs out and get dressed up.
5. Yes you can dress like James bond as there will be a Martini bar there.

Hmmmm. I only dance the tango, which is likely not on the set list, have no interest in speed events (too slow, and typically upright), so it sounds like it's a party rather than a car event. OK. I'll see how I feel when it gets closer. If the Monty is back on the road, maybe the speed event will be more appealing.
