Pat, that looks like my kind of club! Are you racing with them?
Thank you for the link to the site. I sent them a couple of my "Oops" pictures.

Thanks for that.
FISC is definitely cool....that's a great site; I ran across that group from a link on the Peter May Engineering site a while ago.
Here in the colonies, we still have a few Brit-car diehards (although we seen to be overrun by Honda Civics nowadays!).
My club (www.emraracing.org) has 4 active Spridget racers (5 if you include a wild rotary-powered Midget) plus a Cortina, a Mini, P1800, two X1/9s and other visiting cars.
The "big" club racing group (the SCCA) still has plenty of Spridget racing (and they still fare pretty well at the big national SCCA competions). Based on pictures I've seen, Jeff's gang (above) still has quite a few Spridgets and other Brit cars racing too.
The closest thing to this type of thing in North America is "Spec Miata" with hordes of very-equal MX-5s racing about....great action, but sometimes a bit rough.....sometimes we call it "Special-Ed Miata" (we also call it "Jelly-Bean Racing").
