1 - Yes, I would attempt to participate. I've managed 11 consecutive
VTR conventions, an annual TR racing pilgrimage might work out, too.
And I may even have a nice new, white helmet for 2001 ;-)
2 - Autocrosses? Use a track? Absolutely. The farthest I've ever been
from FTD at a VTR convention was Savannah. Temple of Triumph sent up a
strong contingent from Florida, many of them quite familiar with Roebling
Road. They did well. Me, I was in a borrowed car, in which I had made
two 30 second runs at a previous event, heading into the big sweeper at
the end of the main straight, wondering things like "How fast can this car
go around this turn? How long would it take me to pay off the bills if I
incur any damage? Lifting might be prudent."
3 - All Triumph would be nice, if we got enough entries. It might have to be
a British only weekend, with a Triumph only feature, an MG only feature,
or your basic MG vs. TR clash.
4 - I'd donate what time I could, depending on the location. If this new
track in Salt Lake comes through, it is roughly the same tow time for
folks in California, Arizona, Colorado, Oregon, etc. Hmmm, I just had
a thought. Every year we have a "British Field Day" which for the last
nine years has been a saturday only car and motorcycle show, with an
almost an autocross done on a blocked off city street. Various folks in
the British Motor Club of Utah have been talking about what we would need
to do to make it a multi-day event. Track events in the next valley over
could certainly expand interest!
Gee, this is probably a bit more long winded than necessary to answer the
questions, sorry, I got carried away as usual.
