    LBCs at 2019 Mitty @ Road Atlanta

    I attended the 2019 Mitty with some old friends from the 6Pack Forum. I hadn't attended the event since 2012. Meeting old and new friends was great. RA has actually provided hot water to some of the infield showers - yea! The number and variety of cars was outstanding! Alfa Romeo was the featured Marque. I did include pictures of two Alfas, a yellow racing 1963 TZ1 and a red Giulietta Sprint Speciale parked in the pits. The other extra car included is Ray Evernham's 1936 Chevy special, an interesting and fast car.
    Enjoy!

    I love that orange Europa. Always regret selling mine but actually replaced it with that Land Rover 109 you took a picture of.

    Jim -

    Great photos, love the Bugeyes, Jags & Morgans. As most vintage races, I didn't see any Big Healeys.....The Mitty's on my Bucket List, but it's a long haul from Portland, OR......Laguna Seca and Road America next year. Would love to see more Healey sixes on the vintage tracks, I'm usually in rare company.

    Dougie,
    My wife and I attended a Father's day vintage race at Mid Ohio about 12-14 years ago and witnessed a group of Aussies and Kiwis touring and racing their big Healeys. it was truly a sight and some aggressive racing for expensive cars so far from home.
    The HSR event at Barber this weekend looks to be well attended, to bad, I'm working a benefit ride along on the proving grounds from 9 - 4 on Saturday.
    I added a comment to your Seattle entry.

    Hi Jim -

    You must have been lucky enough to catch one of the "Aussie vs. US Healey Challenge" races in 2005. The Australian's brought over about a dozen fully prepared big Healey racers. The USA race regualtions were a little different then the Aussies who had a slight advantage in motor prep & tires.
    Good fun for all and if there were still the numbers drivers racing big Healeys today, I think another event would be scheduled......
