We post events there and have discussions and photos that are McLaren-related.

Some of our past events included:
June 15- SAN DIEGO GRAN TURISMO by O'Gara - One of the best car show events in San Diego. Live DJ. All exotics. VIP area with food for car owners.
June 29- MCLAREN DAY AT THE FAIR- A display of our cars in a roped-off area at the Del Mar Fair. Included free admission to the Fair and VIP parking for all car owners and guests.
July 7 RALLY TO JULIAN- We had our first back roads driving event on July 7. After a wonderful hosted breakfast at the McLaren San Diego service center, 10 cars and 14 people rallied through the twisties with some spirited driving to Julian where we had a wonderful sit-down lunch. O’Gara kindly suppied radios for our use. Then some members headed off through the mountains to Palm Springs where they stayed overnight and drove their cars on the private Thermal Club racetrack on Sunday. Here is the video of the Rally:
JULY 8 THERMAL TRACK DAY - An O'Gara Motorsport experience at the exclusive Thermal Racetrack complete with private instruction by professional race drivers
July 13 RANCHO SANTA FE ESTATE SOCIAL EVENT - A social event with caviar and champagne at an incredible $30 million estate in Rancho Santa Fe.
July 20- THE VAULT CARS AND COFFEE One of the nicest venues for car events with a large storage facility of exotic and classic cars and an amazing event space.
July 31- PRIVATE ADVANCED SHOWING OF FAST AND FURIOUS HOBBS and SHAW MOVIE at The Lot La Jolla. Generously hosted by McLaren San Diego.
Aug 1- SDMC BOARD Meeting – We met at the Vault Boardroom where Justin Glad generously fired up the pizza oven. We planned the structure of the organization and events for the next 3 mos.
Sat Aug 3 - SAN CLEMENTE CARS & CASTLES RALLY and SHOW - We had 20 people in 15 cars, and drove for about 2.5 hrs before arriving at the event. The Cars and Castles event was like a mini Concourse d'Elegance on the grass in a hilltop park overlooking the ocean. There was live music, food, wine, beer, cigar lounge, tequila tasting and kids activities including bounce house, snowcones, corn hole, and cotton candy. There were over 100 cars in attendance, mostly exotics. I co-organize it each year, and it keeps getting better.

Sat Aug 10 – VETERAN HONOR DRIVE – Ramona. Great backroads drive ending at Grace Church in Ramoma with a parade to honor a wounded veteran.
