LOS ANGELES, May 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today L.A. Car Connection (LACC) and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) teamed up for the 5th year, to raise money for research to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes at Willow Springs International Speedway.
Porsche, Ferrari, Jaguar, BMW and Corvette's are just a few of the fast, exotic cars speeding across the track at the world-renowned raceway at Willow Springs International. From the newest model vehicle to the classics and everything in-between, LACC car enthusiasts will be racing for a cause. Last year, LACC and JDRF raised more than $100,000.00 at this event and this year we plan to double that donation.
"Each year we commit to raise more to find a cure for juvenile diabetes, and I can't think of a more exciting way to make that happen than being a part of our 5th Annual Track Day Invitational," said Eric Brooks, President of LACC. "Nothing is better than being able to provide a day where I can provide clients with an unforgettable exciting day and at the same time pay it forward for an important cause."
Drivers and spectators alike participated in a host of activities including speed monitored raceways, ride-a-longs with professional drivers, live entertainment, silent and live auctions with items from David Hasselhoff, Paul Anka, Chris Paul from the L.A. Clippers and a delicious barbecue lunch.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF's goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people's lives until we achieve a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, regulatory influence and a working plan to better treat, prevent, and eventually cure T1D.
