Ahh! I missed you again! That's two or three events we've both been to 
this year and didn't bump into each other. I'd kinda like to put a face 
to the name. We were the only red MGA in the infield on Saturday, right 
beside the gravel access road. I wandered through the 'Bs, but they 
didn't have names on the registration cards at Mid-Ohio.  Maybe next 
time. Sunday we actually got selected for final judging at the concourse! 
Sorta embarrassed me, as I was moved to the judging paddock between a 
Ferrari 328 and a Porsche 928. A Jaguar XK-140 FHC won the judges choice 
for classic (pre-'80), and the Ferrari won for contemporary car.

I was there Saturday and Sunday, and also watched the MGB pulling away 
from the #20 Porsche 356. The Porsche started out in the #5 spot and 
moved up, but not as quickly as the 'B. I was particularly watching it, 
because #20 was the car my four year old picked as her car during the 
qualifying Saturday, so I wanted to see how well it did Sunday. Great 
race, and great day overall. Wasn't any 'As there this year, though. How 
about those GTP cars!

See you sometime,
