James Reeve Returns 2011 Road Atlanta
The return to racing of Yenko Stinger racing legend James J. Reeve Jr.
Back in the mid 70's James was a thorn in the side of the British and
Datsun factory teams. James in his 1966 Yenko Stinger Corvair running as a
privateer was able to beat the likes Group 44, Huffaker and Datsun factory
backed teams in SCCA D-Production road racing at the national championship
level. I offered my Yenko Stinger Corvair for James to drive in the 2011
Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) annual Mitty race at Road Atlanta the
weekend of April 29-May 1. James certainly didn't disappoint us Corvair
types this weekend. We were only beaten by a very well driven, and fast,
Lotus Super 7 driven by Bill Bartlett also from Atlanta. Thanks again
Onboard at HSR Mitty 2012
This is qualifying from run group 2 at the 2012 HSR Mitty historic races,
presented by Classic Motorsports magazine. Track was a bit foggy and my
camera lens was a bit oily.
Onboard a 1956 Lotus Eleven as it attempts to work through traffic at Road
Atlanta. The object is to get one good lap time for qualifying which is
very difficult with 50+ cars on track and a substantial speed disparity
between cars. Make sure you see all the way to the end!
Cars seen in video:
Elva, Lotus, Corvair, MG, Jaguar, Ginetta, Porsche, Austin Healey, Triumph.

2012 Sebring 12 Hour - SVRA Sprint Race
SVRA Vintage Sprint Race on Friday March 16... it was great to be part of
the Sebring 12 Hour 60th Anniversary celebration. Made a lousy start but
still had a fun race compared to Thursday's enduro. Caught up to everyone
soon enough, and might have even gotten by the 240Z and 911 if not for an
Alfa in the wrong place at the wrong time. Just one more lap!
Starting to really appreciate the grip of old-school Goodyear bias-plys.
