I was thinking the same thing when I read that message--there's a guy
named Collin Sparkes here who puts his MGB up front in almost any
vintage race he enters. I'd have to pick up six seconds at PIR just to
study his bumper. I think I'd need a turbocharger and a talent
transplant to gain six seconds.

Subject: Re: FOT NewsFlash: Announcing SVRA TR/MG Challenge
I know of at least three MGBs that will be more than a challenge
for us TRs to compete with. Don Munoz, Les Gonda and John
Target! These guys are running some pretty hot set-ups. Munoz
was beating Vic Skirmats at MidOhio this year til his
transmission crapped out! Gonda just won the MG Collier Cup at
Watkins Glen and then Group 3 at Summit Point! Target won Group
3 at Watkins Glen beating Bob Moser in his Daimler!
If we can get my hero Mike Jackson to bring his TR to MidOhio
will have a chance, or if any West Coast "TR Hotshoe" can make
it. So, I would be careful of making disparaging remarks about
the lack of a challenge presented by the MGs. Unless, of course,
we dump over-developed MGBs from the competition!!
