Hey all. This weekend coming up is a big race at Road America for BMC fans. Austin Healey vs Triumph vs Morgan shootout. Check out https://svra.com/SVRA/SVRAHome.nsf/weblinks/EJEN-6VFQX9?OpenDocument
There are a lot of cars entered for this and some REALLY fast ones at that.

They're advertising live timing and scoring from that page above. It's going to be a good one.

Cool! A great concept and +1 for that poster.

But too far away and too many other things going on for me.

For those in my area (northeast USA), the NHIS Vintage Celebration is this weekend too.

I won't be at this, but their poster is here:

Just heard in from Elkart Lake. Sounds like they've got a great turnout. One of the fast Triumphs had a valvetrain failure yesterday and had to park it for the weekend.

The weather is sunny and the tempature is perfect.

Live Timing and Scoring is up and working.

Is the Kastner Sebring racer still on the grid?

Yup.

It was Dick Stockton's car who had the failure.

Isn't he the one you crew for?

Yup, but I'm still in school and couldn't make it out there.

Uhh...what a bad luck!
I was waiting for message that the battle of the titans will show down...

It is a bummer, but it happens.

I think they're having some "new" car teething problems with the Sebring car.

Tony Drews has been the fastest of the TR bunch. Bill Babcock's "Peyote" has been battling out with a crazy fast Sprite just ahead of him. Ahead of those guys are two FIA GT Morgan 8's

It rained for the MOTRAH qualifying race, and some of the drivers pulled off.

It rained for the MOTRAH qualifying race, and some of the drivers pulled off.

That's something really astounding to me. I several times heard of that US drivers don't like rain.
I do live at a wet part of Europe...If we wouldn't like to race in rain we won't have much track time.
Racing in rain is great fun and is not so hard on the car aslong you stay on the track lane /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif .

Hope Keith will keep the Sebring car running. After the bad luck last year I would like to see him finishing..

Here (https://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7361466699989864483&q=Road-America+vintage) is a video of Tony Drews, TR4, battling with Rick Gurolnick's Porsche 356 from this past weekend.
