I am honored to say that for the past four years I’ve been a part of the best automotive event in Florida. In its tenth year, the Celebration Exotic Car Festival reigns supreme, offering everything from two track days at the world’s most famous racing circuit (Daytona), a world-class concours style car show, one of Orlando, Florida’s premiere VIP parties, and a blisteringly fast road rally through the countryside. I’ve been donating my services as a media photographer since 2010 and this year was the best yet. Continue reading →
As our monthly Cars & Coffee meets have been getting bigger and bigger we had a nice little treat this month. The Suncoast British Car Club sent us an email saying we will be invaded by the British for the April meet. They rolled into Suncoast Motorsports with over 20 little British cars and helped us break our attendance record with an amazing 87 cars. Guests saw everything from a Lingenfelter supercharged Corvette Grand Sport to a Porsche Carrera GT and even a 1,000 horsepower Toyota Supra Turbo. And as always at Suncoast, Panera bagels and Starbucks coffee keeps everyone happy.
It’s never a bad thing when I get the opportunity to take a brand new Porsche out for a private photoshoot. It’s also not a bad thing when one of my sponsors happens to be the number one Porsche Parts and Accessories wholesaler in the United States. Case in point: A 2013 Porsche 991 Carrera S Cabriolet fitted with a full carbon fiber Vorsteiner V-GT Aero Package.
On December 15, 2012 Suncoast Motorsports hosted their annual “Porsches in the Park” car show at St. Armand’s Circle in Sarasota, Florida. A free-of-charge event for all Porsche owners brought out over 100 of Stuttgart’s finest creations. Everything from vintage 356′s to the latest and greatest GT3 RS models were on display for auto enthusiasts to enjoy. Continue reading →
On December 1, 2012 Suncoast Motorsports in Sarasota, Florida hosted the 2012 Holiday Toy Run, with all proceeds going to the Toys for Tots foundation. The event kicked off with the monthly Cars & Coffee meet, followed by a spirited 80-mile road rally through the countryside, and arrived back at Suncoast for a cookout. Over 50 cars attended Cars & Coffee in the morning and 36 cars made the journey on the traffic-free roads in East Sarasota County.
An entire pallet box was overflowing with toy donations and a check for $350 was presented to the Toys for Tots foundation. Thank you to everyone who donated and participated. We’ll see you all next year! Continue reading →
After a charity car show I attended with one of my sponsors, Suncoast Motorsports in Sarasota, Florida, I had the opportunity to take a 2013 Porsche 991 Carrera S out for some photos. This car was fitted with a factory Aerokit and a 7-speed PDK transmission with Launch Control. I brought it down to one of my favorite locations with just enough light left to get a few shots in.
Another great turnout at Suncoast Motorsports, the host of our local Cars & Coffee and my newest sponsor. If you’re in the Sarasota, Florida area on the first Saturday of every month be sure to stop by and check it out. The meet runs from 8-10am with snacks and Starbucks coffee provided. All makes and models welcome! Continue reading →
It’s been a little while since I’ve updated this site. After dealing with massive computer failure, a move into a new apartment, all of the holidays, and the fantastic news that a baby is on the way, I kind of let my site get away from me.
I’ll update this post with content from the last few Cars & Coffee meets in Sarasota. As the founder of this event I’m glad to see it getting bigger and bigger, with the array or beautiful automobiles getting significantly larger. We’ve had some big time players come out as of late. Most notably a black Ferrari Enzo, an orange Saleen S7 Twin Turbo, and a pair of His and Hers Nissan GT-Rs, both highly modified.
