H-3 Tour Sparks
Rousing Participation

Nineteen gleaming Porsches. Thirty-eight excited people. A crystal-clear April morning. A billion dollar freeway with vast, open stretches and breathtaking mountain and ocean vistas. Put them all together and what do you get? The inaugural PCA-Hawaii H-3 Tour! The brainchild of V.P. Darryl Lee, thanks to his vision and planning, and the efforts and participation of many club members, the first ever H-3 run surpassed all expectations.

The Porsches began streaming into Lagoon Drive assembly point, adjacent to Honolulu Airport's Reef Runway, before 9:30 on sapphire-blue Sunday, April 30, 2000. Soon nineteen cars stood in glistening array. After a driver's meeting hosted by Darryl and President Mike Cripps, the tour began at 11 AM, with a parade of Porsches stretching over a mile and a half along the H-3. Cars and drivers later assembled for group photos at a scenic turnout near Kaneohe Bay Drive. Then came a sumptuous lunch at Koolau Golf Club, to top off a spectacular day. Hat's off to everyone who participated! Special thanks to Marsha Lee for her assistance (and those awesome 911 cookies). Group and individual photos will be available for all participants at the May meeting.
