Those of you who have been with us for a while probably recall the great summertime Cars & Coffee events that Canepa Motorsports has hosted at their museum and shop facility in Scotts Valley the last few years. Click here for some of the photos from one of our past visits. We were really sad to hear that they were no longer going to be hosting C&C events after last year. Well we have some great news, our friend Josh W. (Spike.86) has set up a private tour for our car club, and all NorCal86 and 86DRIVE members are welcome to join us. The private tour will be held on Saturday, July 20, 2019.
Some more details from Josh:
You may not really know of the Canepa facility and what exactly they do there. They offer a complete restoration facility for all kinds of cars, from classic vehicles that are decades’ old to rally Group B Porsche 959’s, and crazy cars like the V16T Cizeta Moroder, and a museum full of various cars and former race cars.
Canepa is graciously offering us the opportunity for a free, private group tour of their facility. For anyone who’s ever been to one of the old Canepa Cars and Coffee, you know how special this experience can be, and for those who never had a chance to go to any of those, this would be it as they are no longer holding C&C events.
The tour length is roughly 1.5 to 2 hours.
This is the first time we’ve done a group tour with them; it should be an awesome experience and hopefully this will open up the option of having more tours there in the future!
Please arrive around 9:30 AM!
