If you didn’t get a chance to stop by Mission Inn yesterday, you missed a great show. Festivals of Speed is based in Eustis, Florida and Mission Inn is their home field. We were invited to be the presenting sponsor and host of the VIP lounge, so allow us to show you what Festivals of Speed is all about.
Weather can change quickly in the “mountains” of Central Florida, but thankfully a nice breeze made for a perfect day. Most of the heavy hitters and the tents were in place by Saturday night, which made move-in go smoothly. A line of show cars was already formed by 7:30 am, and attention to detail placed each car among others in its class.

Mission Inn has 36 holes of golf, which makes it a great venue for events like this. Orlando’s car culture is incredibly diverse, but the city is plagued by highways designed before the Mouse came to town. The early risers were in place by noon, but a few late arrivals caught everyone’s attention. Lamborghinis and Porsches were in abundance, with classic muscle cars and even a few vintage Harleys. Festivals of Speed has a dedicated fanbase that attends each event, so we look forward to spending time with them and our fans this weekend at Festivals of Speed St. Petersburg. Join us Sunday, April 2nd at Vinoy Park for a gathering of Tampa Bay’s classics and exotics. And stay with us for more event coverage here on Autofluence.
