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,
