    Randy Forbes update

    I contacted Randy Forbes a few weeks back telling him I would be happy to put him on my crew list at the HSR race event at Sebring this weekend.
    He appeared this morning along with his wife and BMW 328 (I think) M looking trim, hail and hearty.
    He sends his best to all.

    ďSecond in Vintage went to Rob Albino in his Hudson Historics 1999 No. 99 BMW Z3 Coupe while Michael Oritt made it two Ginettas on the class podium with a third place showing. Driving the oldest car in the race, Oritt also cracked the top-12 overall in his 1961 No. 82 Ginetta G4, which is also prepared by Michaelís Vintage Racing.Ē

    Thanks Lin. And in this morning's feature it was a Ginetta G4 sweep of group 2 with Tom Grudovich, Hervey Parke and me (in that order) on the podium. We tried to replicate Ford's finish at Le Mans by crossing the finish line together but some of the group 3 cars got in the way.
