UPDATE: Due to the tremendous reception and enthusiasm surrounding the event, Strada Corsa Houston has been delayed until Summer 2018 to meet the needs and demands of the growing audience. We will keep you all posted on any further news as it develops.
If there is one thing our owner has a love for other than technology and rhinos (and Batman), it’s classic cars. Whether it’s the history of the iconic vehicles or the thrill of the race events themselves, vintage road racing has been an exciting pastime to spectate for us.
Thus, on the weekend of May 4th – 6th, neoRhino IT Solutions will be a sponsor at the inaugural Strada Corsa Houston Vintage Road Show at the Johnson Space Center in Webster, TX. The extravaganza includes classic road racing across the Space Center grounds, a collector car auction, and much more. We will have a booth during the event with proceeds from attendees & patrons benefiting Space Center Houston.
If you can make it out, come on by, talk with us and enjoy the show! All the information about the event can be found on the Strada Corsa Website.
