FemPowered Tech Talk: October 4, 2019

Performance Technic

Back toward the start of the month, we hosted FemPowered for a Laguna Seca tech talk at the shop. This was the first event of its kind for us, and we had a blast opening up our space for an evening of food, education, raffles, and community building.

The ladies at FemPowered were featured in their own blog (see our last post) and are on a mission to make women in the automotive world feel more “at home,” while spreading awareness and building their own network of drivers and enthusiasts.

As you can see in the photos below, we organized the shop space to accommodate the large group of attendees. In addition to the presentation area, there was a helmet try-on station, a kitchen filled with spreads of snacks (thanks to our resident chef and food expert, Nate), a raffle table, and Recaro seat demo area. Attendees were welcome to bring their cars and park in the lot in conjunction with the staged cars we had prepared.

Our service shop served as the “classroom” for the tech talk, and as you can see, it was a full house! Before the talk began, drivers had about an hour to chat and hang out in the shop and kitchen areas. While the focus of the event was on the tech talk, what good would it be if we didn’t have a chance to get to know each other?

Once the talk began, Erika and the rest of the founding members from FemPowered welcomed everybody with an introduction of the group, and a warm thanks for the support. Then, Martin Umeh, BMW CCA driving instructor, took the floor to begin the class. The focus of this talk was running your car at Laguna Seca, and what to expect. Martin covered everything from basic car control to a turn-by-turn breakdown of the track, and he proved to be a wealth of information. His presentation was interactive and informative, and even if you’re a seasoned Laguna Seca pro, there were valuable takeaways for everyone in the room.

Cafe Technic: After Hours, July 2019

Performance Technic

DSC_0571.jpg

In July, we continued our summer months Cafe Technic meets, except this one was a little different. We hosted it this time on a Friday evening, and it was a surprisingly big turnout! Moving forward, we may alternate between weekend mornings and Friday evenings to give our attendees some variety. Hanging out with so many friends, family, and new faces was a great way to end the work week. It’s also not a bad way to slip away from work early and miss out on some of that Bay Area traffic.

Check out the photo gallery below and see if you can spot your car! As always, thank you to everyone who attended, and we look forward to the next one!

Summer Kickoff: Cafe Technic, June 2019

Performance Technic

With the onset of warmer weather and longer days, we’ve decided to bring back our monthly Cafe Technic events here at the shop. It’s our take on cars and coffee, and the first one of the year was a big success! Last weekend, we opened our facility to guests of all kinds—from customers to family to visitors who have never been here before. A great mix of European and Japanese cars showed up, which was a pleasant surprise.

We plan to host these meets throughout the warm months, so keep an eye on our Events page here on the site to see when the next one is happening.

If you attended this time, then chances are that your car will show up in our photo coverage below. If you missed out this month, we invite you to come hang out with us at the next one!
