Jason- Do you have pics of the GT6?  Also, around the Holidays in December I
had asked if someone could help me to get my GT6 on the track.  A few people
responded and I appreciated that.  I lost their names/emails, and I have had
very little luck in trying to get it out at Summit Point or other nearby track
( I live in Maryland).  It seems that I have to go to school in order to get
it out there.  I just want to get some track time, not race.  Perhaps in the
future I would venture into that area and go to school, etc.  It is a fully
prepared car, and I have done many auto crosses in other cars as well as a 3
day Skip Barber competition school at Lime Rock MANY years ago.  Is there
someone whom can give me some guidance here?  Thanks very much- Jay De Pol

It should be known already that the greatest GT6 racer of all time is John
John and I have a nice ongoing GT6 based friendship that has lasted some
35+ years. From the early days of Showroom Stock thru the "giant killer" dp
days in Midwestern Council, and finally the many vintage races in the more
modern era.
Well, let's just say the satchel full of log books that goes along with
this car holds over 300 documented race weekends... most of them driven by
John up towards the sharp end of grid.
In it's British racing green Zippy Racing livery, the car is truly one of a
kind. All those old races are visible and vibrant in its aging patina. Many
unique mods and upgrades are both one of a kind and remarkably simplistic
and smart in design.
As a Father's Day gift to myself, John, and the legions of Triumph fans at
the Blackhawk Classic this weekend.... The Zippy Racing GT6+ is coming out
of hibernation for the first time in 6 years. After a life-long and loving
relationship with the car as it's track mechanic and crew chief; I am, by
far, the stupid car's greatest fan. AND FINALLY, THIS WEEKEND I WILL BE
I have prepped the car to perfection.
Come out and take a whiff of this car's oil soaked glory at the Blackhawk
Cant Make it this weekend?
No problem.
ALL THREE of our very different GT6 race cars will be on hand in
the Friendly Ghost Racing paddock area for The Kastner Cup at Road America.

But let it be known, this weekend I will be racing the Greatest GT6 of all
time (sinister laugh out loud)
Should be a pretty nice little Father's Day weekend!
