Windgate Ranch Festival of Speed 2012


When spring rolls around in the Phoenix valley, there are two events I always look forward to.  The Windgate Ranch Festival of Speed, put on by Scuderia Southwest, is one of them.  I’ve been in attendance for all four years and even worked to promote the inaugural event, shooting promotional photos and designing a website, posters and other materials… so, suffice to say, it’s an event I care about.  And, with each consecutive year, the event just gets better and better.  With relatively little exposure from the media and attention from the local automotive community, it manages to gather some of the very best cars of any event of the year and lots of them.

Personal highlights this year included a Maserati Tipo 61 (commonly referred to as the Maserati Birdcage, one of 16) and Osca MT4 Spider, along with a large number of exquisite classics and exotics including a Bugatti Veyron, a pair of McLaren MP4-12Cs, a Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, Ferrari 212 Inter Vignale Cabriolet, Ferrari FF, Shelby Cobras, DeTomaso Panteras, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Mercedes-Benz 300SL and so many more.  Be sure to check out the article for last year’s Festival of Speed, along with galleries for all previous years (2011, 2010 and 2009) along with all of my shots from this year’s event.
