Our friend and longtime supporter, Brian King of Global Wealth Partners (GWP) sure knows how to spoil friends of NorCal SCI as he once again opened his firm’s private chalet at this past weekend’s Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Laguna Seca to a group of individuals with spinal cord injuries who were treated to an incredible venue to see racing, non-stop servings of food and drinks and an opportunity to spend a great day appreciating motorsports. Where else can you see and hear historic race cars at full speed doing what they were originally intended to do … and that’s race. This annual event is a celebration of motorsport history that brings approximately 550 race cars together in one open paddock for everyone to enjoy.
We arguably had the best venue in the whole place, overlooking the stretch of the track where the cars pick up their highest speed before coming to a tight turn where one wrong move can result in a rollover. It was quite a scene watching 1927 built race cars out there and, of course, the latest prototypes also did their part to steal the show. Overall, a beautiful day between about 10 wheelchair users who attended the event, thanks to GWP and Brian King for the VIP treatment we all received.
