La Carrera Panamericana

From the Vault: The Mexican Road Race

This blog is from December 19, 2006, and was reposted to our blog in January of 2011. We at North Bay Bavarian wrote this after deciding to enter the 2007 La Carrera Panamericana, which was more than 12 years ago. Our goals for the writings were to amuse ourselves and to attract some big time sponsors […]

October is Carrera Time!

  October 2011 October is the month that racing will get going again for the Spec E30 group at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma. I thought I’d be telling about the results from the September racing, but there wasn’t any E30 racing at either Infineon or Thunderhill. It’s also the month for the start of the La Carrera Panamericana in Mexico. One of the cars participating, a BMW 2002, was […]

A Look at the Monterey Historics 2011

To fill some time and space before the next race in September at Infinion, let us enlighten ourselves some about this years Monterey Historics. Rick and his grandson Eli went down to see what was going on and came back with a few pictures. They also went to the Carrera Fiesta which had a number of La Carrera race cars […]

Thunderhill Raceway April 16-17, 2011

For the second time this year, racing moved to Thunderhill Raceway where the weather showed some clouds, but no rain. Saturday was the customary 1/2 hour race, with nothing unusual happening, unless your name is Bushman.

La Carrera Panamerica 2006

With 2010 drawing to a close, I thought I would finish it up by giving you the end of the year blogs from 2006. These again, are from our story of racing in the world famous Mexican Road Race or La Carrera Panamericana. In reading these stories again, it’s amusing what a green tenderfoot I was to […]

The Mexican Road Race

  This blog is from December 19, 2006, it’s the first narrative we wrote after deciding to enter the 2007 La Carrera Panamericana, which seems like a long time ago. Our goals for the writings were to amuse ourselves and to attract some Big Time Sponsors to help pay the entry fee and a couple of Tortas along the way. […]

Once Upon a Time….

Once upon another time, a couple different blogs were written about the NBB’s entrys into the La Carrera Panamericana road race in Mexico. Since the 2010 race is about to begin this week, we thought you might like to read about the shop’s “Adventures in Mexico” in 2007 and 2009. We’ll start the first story from almost two years […]
