40th Anniversary of The Classic Motorsports Mitty - Road Atlanta



Hurley Haywood will be the Grand Marshall and Porsche will be the featured marque in the 40th Mitty at Road Atlanta.

Starting this Friday April 24th with practice for all groups, there is going to be a wide variety of machines from late 50s and early 60s production cars to prototype sportscars and Formula cars from many decades to late-ish model stockcars to just about every Porsche you can think of.

Schedule

Entry List

After skimming the entry early today, I'm most interested in checking out this rare machine, seemingly driven by the dude that put it together back in 81.

1981 Furey Mk II, campaigned by Dan Furey


Hope to have a fellow 10ther take some of his usual fabulous photos to share. Hope the weather favors us this year....

Having another closer look at the entry, (sadly former) AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson appears on the list in his 1970 Royale RP4. I'll certainly have to seek him out...

Also on the list, an Eagle Corvette GTP, of which I've never seen in person, to the best of my knowledge. Mr. Goodwrench #40

Can't wait.

I'm planning to arrive on Friday around 8am. Hoping to get a good camping spot on the fence around turn 4. We'll have a group of a few guys there, once I get a spot I'll make sure to let you all know so you can stop by and say hello.

It is usually ok until early am Friday, gates open Thursday evening and there is usually a decent line 25-40 people mid afternoon. I'll be claiming a decent stretch of turn 4 street side real estate myself Thursday evening.

And new entry list is sorted by class finally: http://hsrrace.com/wp-content/upload...-List-4.17.pdf


Yeah, I had to google it and see if it was really his car for the Furey. It definitely looks old school garagista race car.

The Beans are stepping up their game with another Intrepid and a Nissan to make the GTP class more than Toby running away from everyone.

And a whole fleet of DPs and LMPC cars, think I counted 3 of each so there's that

Although Sunday does look like a terrible day for packing up and that's always fun.

I should be able to get there as soon as I get off of work on Friday. I have a new job about 10 minutes from the track. Not sure what time that is yet though.

No worries, I'll stake our claim to the usual 'level' area. And if our neighbors don't show possibly their level grassy area instead.

Last year someone parked their rv length wise against the track and blocked a ton of track.

I'll be around, but not camping this year. Something about work and hotels. Turn 6/7 should have some fun stuff going on.

"...just about every Porsche you can think of."

Except any modern prototype. Looks like just more 911s than normal. Very surprising considering the motorsports treasure trove at Porsche center down the road.

Hoping they put the fencing back up trackside at the road again. Turn 4 is the only stretch that doesn't have permanent sleeves in the ground for the fencing apparently. They made the guys hurry out and install it Tuesday afternoon last year before Petit and all they had was checkered flag line left. If there's no fence I might have to be that ass and call them Friday morning about it or put out a couple canopies to take up the space. I'd come up and put in the fencing myself to keep that clear of cars and the daytrippers sitting in AC blocking the fence.


I am curious if Porsche will bring stuff up for Vendor Village this year. Last time Ferrari had a big event they brought one of my old client's cars up from Macon for the tent, F40, 308 GTS (I think it was) and something else small.

I could be wrong, but thought we saw the Penske DHL Porsche one year, but certainly wouldn't expect a LMP1 there on track. Could have one in the paddock / vendor village. Highly unlikely.

And Jim Furey's Furey is nothing more than a Chevy Vega with some Dan Furey bodywork. I dig the Vega's and 358 cubic inches.

Yeah, the camping next to the fence drives me up the wall. Makes me appreciate Sebring that much more as they have the permanent separation for the freedom of movement.

Thanks for the "grouped" entry, broadrun. Sorted by actual class too! We may know what's going on this time, so we need to drink more then.

Hopefully Joe Bradley will be calling the proceedings again.

Think we will see the usual show 919 like Petit and Mitty last year but think it's an older or roller only chassis.

The Penske Spyder was a few years ago for two events but think he binned it once. Might have been the same guy running the old Lotus 'F1' car.

Also haven't seen the Pescarolo for a few years now too, think he has gone over to SVRA. And SVRA has a bad taste in their mouth from the cancelled spring event 3 years ago it seems.


Office government work now so lots of day time left for me to read tenths and pretend to be working. No car so no inspections can be done but you can't go home early either so tenths and other car stuff it is. But luckily government work so get Thursday and Friday off the 3rd week I'm here.

thanks for the reminder about the Pescarolo. That thing was sweet!

Oh snap. AC at work for you. Well played.

And you should be able to tell the days I'm in the office.
