It is shaping up that both the Sunbeam Alpine and the Sunbeam Tiger which were raced by Sports Car Forum (Columbus, OH) will be racing at Mid-Ohio in June. For more details:

Mid-Ohio is getting closer... I hear that the Sports Car Forum Tiger is running pretty well. John Morton will be driving.

The Alpine is doing fairly well - hopefully better once I get the fuel system sorted.

Don't forget about the Car Corral! So far we have over 30 cars registered!

It was really good to see Don Sesslar, Dan Carmichael and HJ Meyer reminiscing about the cars and events when they were racing.

BTW< the "sister" car was driven by John Morton (Datsun/Nissan fame). Nice guy…

Great pictures...thanks!
I love the old pictures from VIR.
I've seen an Alpine and a Tiger running at some of the Pennsylvania hillclimbs. There's also some Sunbeams that usually show up at the Moss Britfest and the TVR "Woodwork" (here in NJ).
I've never met John Morton, but I've driven through "his" chicane many times at Lime Rock /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

What a pride of tigers. Creates a little chicken skin. Really should motivate me to get the old GT2 car on the track again. Doubt we'll ever attract that many to our local 1.65 mile road track in Albuquerque. Awesome photos! Thanks!
