As Pacific Sprint 2022 comes to an end, we look back at all the great memories made in the 3 days of the trip.
For the first edition of Sprint, we kicked off the event with a charity car show in support for the Drive to Dream Foundation at the OCHK Group Headquarters on August 27, 2022. Kids from 7 different families were given the opportunity to have their own car show, with members of the car community bringing their cars for support. Besides getting to sit in their dream cars, they were also given opportunities to go for rides with Drive to Dream Drivers. Needless to say, the kids had a great time and the smile on their faces says it all.
Rounds of of car rides and infinite smiles later, attendees for the Pacific Sprint disembarked on their journey south. After crossing the border, the crew hit the backroads of the Chuckanut Mountains for some twists and turns. After having dinner in Bellevue as a pit stop, the group arrives in Portland ready to hit the track for the following morning.
The group arrives at Portland International Raceway bright and early for the Taste of Motorsports event. A gourmet track event, breakfast is served on the green of PIR for attendees. With the likes of many vendors attending, there were displays of rare cars including a Ferrari Enzo, a Porsche 959, and many more. Groups then ran the track in skill level groups, doing speeds upwards of 180km/h down the main straight. Needless to say, this got many excited and tested the driving skills of everyone at the limit.
After an exhilarating day at Portland International Raceway, we travel north to Seattle where the group stays at the Lotte Hotel Seattle. Rising from 5th Avenue and Marion Street in supreme style, Lotte Hotel Seattle presents the pinnacle of luxury escapism in a class all its own. And thus concludes Pacific Sprint 2022; 3 days of adrenaline filled , relationship building automotive sightseeing.
