The California Festival of Speed is one of the largest supercar gatherings in the southwest, and this past weekend’s event was one for the books.¬†Members from our sister site, Corvette Forum, came out to represent their marque and flex their horsepower on the road course configuration at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana.

Finding a C7 Z06 in the wild is a challenge, but with the Southern California sun shining brightly and an opportunity to get some sideways G’s on the “roval,” two Z06’s came out to give us a show.

The Z06 looked right at home on the track and sounded like America, if America had an official sound.

Our friends at Internet Brands Automotive Group had a booth in the vendor midway and greeted forum members and new friends throughout the day. They also brought along a limited-production, 600 horsepower NISMO GT-R.

Of course, no car event is complete without the Falken Tire trailer and their lovely spokesmodels.

If you didn’t bring a car for the track, you could still get behind the wheel of a race car thanks to Race Room and their driving simulators.

The California Festival of Speed was a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and make some new ones. ¬†I’m excited to see what next year has in store for the SoCal car scene.
