The Mitty 2012 Triumph Feature Race_0001.wmv
Terrific turnout at the 2012 Mitty where Triumph was the featured marque. It was such a treat to see nothing but British cars on the track, this should be a regular feature at vintage races. All we need is enough participation at every event to guarantee a separate class... small bore racers, bring your cars out to play 'cause we love seeing them run!
Sorry for the poor video quality, just grabbed the footage without a tripod on a P&S camera.
VIPER IDIOT AT ROAD ATLANTA - 12/03/06
Check out this footage taken from one of our Porsche group on Road Atlanta this past weekend. More details can be found here:
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. Mini

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.
