Coronado Speed Festival 2011: Bonus Content

Words by Matt Willis

Here’s some “extra” material that didn’t fit into the main coverage pieces…enjoy!

At the end of each race day, the drift drivers always have a little fun. Here are a few track-side shots…

As part of the pre-race ceremonies, the Navy coordinates a few flyovers and a parachute demo by the “Leap Frogs”.

That brings this year’s Speed Festival coverage to a close. We want to give special thanks to Elisabeth Handley of the media crew for helping us out at the last minute, the Navy and event coordinators for making it all happen, and of course the beautiful city of San Diego…couldn’t ask for a better venue. Can’t wait for next year.

Thanks for reading…!

  2. Very cool pictures!!! It inspires me to do the same! (There is a BMW driving school in SC that I was thinking about visiting – perhaps I’ll try to do some photos while I’m there).
