Exactly 75 participants from the Porsche Club,
Italian Auto Club,
Lotus Car Club,
Viper Club, and
British Auto Club as well as numerous independent entries all participated in the 6th annual rally.
This year we also had a number of other car clubs join us.
Additional cars joined us after the rally at the finish. Every year a different car club offers to sponsor the event.
We started at Norm Baker Motor Company,
the Lotus Dealer at 6175 W. Sahara Avenue, just west of Jones, who sponsored our event again this year.
Registration was at 9:00, and the first car out departed at 10:00.
This was a fun and easy scavenger hunt gimmick rally.
Car clubs needed at least three cars per marque to qualify for the manufacturer's trophy.
Participants stayed for lunch at the beautiful finish location of Tuscany Golf Course
and ordered off the menu. We shared the course with the Playboy Club Casino Golf Tournament
so there were plenty of playmates and bunnies on the course in addition to our photographer's models.
This was a fun and easy rally. The entry fee paid for trophies, t-shirts while they lasted,
liquid refreshments at the finish, professional bikini models for photos by the cars,
with all other proceeds going to charity. This year over $500.00 was raised
for the benefit of the Nevada Diabetes Association.
Some of us brought a picnic lunch basket and tailgated on the lush grounds.
Many thanks to our organizers Tony Zito and
Jeff Wenger and also to our hard working volunteers George & Jeanne Degrella,
Carla Lindert, and Craig Stevenson. Special thanks also to all of our beautiful and talented models and to
our photographers Raza Karim and Rob Hatrak
and to photographer's assistant Jake Mauch. Thanks also to Jim Amadio, Manager of
Tuscany Golf Club.
Congratulations to our rally winner Debra Bieniek who took the first place trophy driving her Porsche 911.
The Porsche Club took first and third in the rally winning the Club Trophy back from the Mercedes Club who won last year.
David Greenman of the Porsche Club won the Norm Baker Raffle for the Dan Gurney autographed racing helmet.
