Before the main event, the hundreds of attendees were treated to a gourmet buffet and tours of Speedsport’s immaculate facilities. The guests were able to interact with Speedsport’s department heads and get up-close and personal with some truly phenomenal machinery on display.
“These guys really know how to throw an event,” said Robert, one of the many excited guests. “I’ve never seen a Porsche RSK in person before. And the race shop! All those Cup cars in one place. Wow.” The Vintage Department featured a number of rare 4-cam powered cars and engines in various states of rebuild. The Competition department was chock full of Porsche race cars including numerous late model Cup cars and a variety of track-prepared Caymans.
After the tours and food, the guests took their seats and Speedsport Tuning founder Spencer Cox told of his long friendship and history with David Murry. The guest of honor then took the microphone and entertained the attendees with wonderful stories and photos from his long and illustrious racing career which has taken him all the way from his first drive in a Formula Ford to the podium at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. David currently coaches a few lucky clients and through his company David Murry Track Days, hosts numerous track events up and down the East Coast where experienced drivers get maximum track time.
