Join other SoCal R8s for a Sun and Fun drive from Newport Beach to Redondo Beach. We will be leaving Newport Beach at 1:30 pm on Sunday, July 14th, and ending at the King Harbor Yacht Club, in Redondo Beach. Our drive will be along the coast, as much as possible, ending at the KHYC bar for cold beverages and a great ocean view.

This is a great excuse to get your beautiful car out for a spin, and to see and drive with other R8s. Come join us!

Email me ( [email protected]) if you can make it, and I will tell you our meeting place in Newport Beach.

Six cars are confirmed so far, plus a few "maybes". Come join us! Its going to be a great drive.

I will pick the starting point based on the amount of parking we need, and will send an email with the address to those attending by Wednesday.

Thank you to 11 R8 owners that attended the drive yesterday. It was lots of fun to meet you all, and to drive down the coast and see a bunch of beautiful R8s blasting down the road. The police escort we had for part of the trip was also a nice twist: usually we are dreading seeing a police car in front or in back of us! And it was great to share a beer with you all afterwards.

I want to also thank those of you who helped set up a Facebook page for our group: SoCal R8 Club. I am not too savvy in the social media world, so that was helpful.

If you want to be notified of our next event and are NOT already on my email list, send an email to [email protected]

Attached is a pic showing 9 of our cars stopped along the coast.

Big shout out to Steve for setting this up. Drove three hours to be there. Haven't found any R8 specific meetups or groups in central Calif. Drive was a nice mix of conditions. Enjoyed meeting other R8 enthusiasts.

Thanks for driving that long distance to join us, and for posting all those pics and vids. It was fun watching them, and re-living the drive.

I want to note that you won the prize for "Highest R8 Jump". Your car momentarily left the Earth and became weightless, as your floating sunglasses prove at the 30:49 mark. Well done sir!
