2020 GGAHC EVENTS


June 13: Rolling Healeys Gather at Moss (Landing)

What: The GGAHC announces a delightful drive on June 13th presented by area experts Elliot & Ginny Brown, Irene Medzyk & Harry Harami.

This may just prove to be the first outing for the club this year! Maybe we should call it the season opener!!!

The adventure takes us down side roads on the west side of 101 heading south bound. We will wind through country roads taking us through Aromas, Prunedale and Elkhorn, then heading south on Highway 1 to Moss Landing.

At Moss Landing and if the restaurants are up and running by then, we will have six to choose from ranging from Thai food to Mexican and the famous Phils Fish Market to name 3. There we can gather in groups and pick our poison. If as this date approaches, the restaurants still cannot accommodate us, we will resort to a running board picnic with location to be announced.

A potential optional stop for those taking their time getting home is the Elkhorn Nursery, which houses an amazing assortment of succulents and many great outdoor decorating ideas.

Hope to see you then!!

More info: Meet at Morgan Hill StarBucks (1041 Cochrane Rd, Morgan Hill, CA 95037) at 9:00 am and plan for a 9:30 departure. As usual be fueled up and ready to put on a few miles (finally!) Several gas stations are available in the immediate vicinity.

October 3 – 4: CSRG Charity Challenge

What: The Charity Challenge is the most exciting, bang for the buck, feel-good vintage racing event on the West Coast. Over the past five years it’s grown at a phenomenal rate to the point where it’s on every racer’s short list. From the driver’s gift at registration to the last checkered flag on Sunday, the Charity Challenge is a delight.

The Charity Challenge is more than a car event. It’s an immersion into the type of road racing experience that people loved back in the 60s and earlier—only without the drawback of Port-a-Potties or spec cars with spec motors & drivers with the personality of dead grass. Instead, you get great cars, great racing and great people with a love of the sport to match your own. You will probably eat too much from the food and beverages available at the track, and be exhausted when it’s over, but it’s worth it. You just cannot do any better….

More info: Online at charityracing.org.


October 10 – 11: British Fall Classic

What: The Annual British Fall Classic automobile show being held in beautiful downtown Morgan Hill.  This exceptional event will feature exquisite British classic sports & saloon cars representing revered marques such as Rolls Royce, Aston Martin, Jaguar, MG, Morgan, Triumph, Austin Healey, Lotus, Morris, and more!  There also will be British motorcycles as well as race cars!
