Holy cow, talk about low numbers.
A quick peruse of the results on the SVRA website shows at Mid Ohio last
weekend they had only 152 cars take the green flag in their Sprint race.
Group 1, where Spits usually run, had 24 cars start. Group 3, where the 4
cylinder TR's generally run, had 16 cars. Those groups used to have 50
It looks like the Healey Challenge guys sat out the Group 3 race, no idea
why, but that had some impact on the Group 3 number.
I do find it interesting that Jeff's meeting was only attended by Group 1
and 3 people. Jeff, do you know if any other meetings were held with the
big bore guys?
I am glad Jeff's meeting went well, and I hope the M-O staff keep
listening. From what I heard and saw at Road Atlanta, it is obvious the
SVRA staff is well aware that we racers are the customer and they are doing
everything they can to keep us happy.
I have to say I am surprised at M-O, with all this scuttlebutt about how
poorly they treat racers, they have a lot of gall charging $75 for the
privilege of parking an RV without any services whatsoever.
