Weathertech Raceway, Laguna Seca, CA. Returning to the iconic Monterey Peninsula, the 2022 Velocity Invitational gave vintage racing fans a superb combination of historic racing and luxury lifestyle. Last year’s event included a world-class display of Porsche 917s, while this year focused on production-class racers like the 356 and 911. Throw in some Porsche-powered Specials, a prototype 910, and a 4-cam RS60 Spyder, and there was plenty to keep the senses on full alert.

On the track, approximately fifty Porsches competed over the 11-turn, 2.238-mile-long circuit that features a whopping 180’ of elevation change, including the world-famous “Corkscrew” corner. Porsches almost accounted for a quarter of the car count, which is more than all right with the team here at Stuttcars. Race group 8 for 1966-1979 Historic SCCA T/A Under-2L, 2.5L Challenge, and B & C Sedans was the perfect stage for watching early 911s fight Alfas, Datsuns, and a few BMW 2002s. Forget whale tails and wide fender flares; this is early production racing, where narrow tires ensure plenty of sliding in the corners.
