This was not a typical First Sunday Drive. A few of us woke up at 6 o'clock in the morning, and gathered at Leann's Cafe in Burlingame, which opens 24 hours. We had a nutricious breakfast before we headed out to Sonoma Raceway at 8 am sharp. A caravan of Mercedes-Benz roammed through the streets of San Francisco and drove across the Golden Gate Bridge, and an AMG owner had to test his ferocious engine sounds while passing through the tunnels.
We arrived at the Sonoma Raceway just one minute to spare before 9 o'clock, and a few more members with their Mercedes-Benz were waiting for us at the gate. Our section members are very generous and had donated a large sum of amount to the Speedway Children's Charities, which the CSRG (Classic Sports Racing Group), gave us our own corral to park. The reason we needed to be at Sonoma Raceway at certain time was to make sure we had to option of signing up and selecting our favorite vintage cars to ride on.
