Autocross a hit at Wags & Wheels


Baywater Animal Rescue hosted an autocross competition at their Wags & Wheels event this past weekend.

The autocross, which consisted of a tricky, tight driving course laid out in the K-Mart parking lot, was hosted by the Porsche Club of America, with all entry fees donated to the popular local no-kill animal shelter.

50 entrants tested their driving skills in cars that ranged from a Ferrari race car and an Aston-Martin Vantage, a ford Focus, some Subarus, a vintage Austin-Healy and a majority turnout of Porsches, of course.

Participants declared the event a huge success, and the only question afterwards was, “When’s the next one?”
