Ron Wakefield Scholarship
Ron Wakefield Scholarship Porsche Club Event
The Dallas area Porsche Club is coming to Tyler on Sunday, September 28, for what should be one of the most interesting and entertaining automobile events ever in Northeast Texas.
The event will be held in a French barn known as "Le Auto Grange", owned by car enthusiast Billy Hibbs. Billy features in his garage a factory 908 short tail coupe, all 8 cylinders, gull wing doors and original race memorabilia. But Billy is most passionate about sending students, who otherwise couldn’t afford to attend, to Tyler Junior College to study Automotive Technology.
Famous factory Porsche driver Vic Elford will be the keynote speaker. Elford drove Billy’s 908 at Zeltweg (The Austrian Grand Prix) back in 1968.
The event will also include an auction to raise money for the Maverick’s Regional Charity, the Hope House in Mineral Wells. Elford will be donating some very unique items for that auction, and Maverick advertiser, Maurice Efune of Ascot Diamonds has generously donated a piece of women’s jewelry (worth $1,500) to the Hope House cause. You can also have your picture made with Vic or Ron or sitting in the 908 if you’ll just “Open your heart and your wallet and give Hope House the biggest bill you’ve got!”
(Please note: for security reasons NO personal photography will be allowed.)
