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!
