HSR: The Mitty (Road Atlanta): 26 Apr - 28 Apr 2019

The 42nd Mitty at Road Atlanta is next weekend! This years featured marque is Alfa. I expect 10s of them! A quick glance at the entry shows only 4. Alfas are unfortunately an extremely rare sight around here, even in race car form. Hopefully this brings the street cars out of the woodwork!

Entry List: http://hsrrace.com/wp-content/upload...19-to-Post.pdf

Schedule: http://hsrrace.com/wp-content/upload...Schedule-8.pdf



This weekend will also serve as a 40th birthday party and bachelors party for my friends and Tenths posters fieldodreams79 and broadrun96! Looking forward to it!

Thank y'all for letting us use this forum for this event for the past few years. If you have never heard of it, Goodwood put together this great video a couple of years ago to describe the event.

We should be thanking you for sharing with us! I know a few on here that would love to be at the Mitty, me included.....

That poster alone would be worth the trip!

I left out a very important word: respectively. Please let me clarify that these two gentlemen are not both turning 40 and getting married to each other (not that there's anything wrong with that) but field is old and broadrun had a good run.

I've been packing and sorting the gear as usual. Tough with wedding stuff everywhere as well. And tougher trying to figure out what bourbon to bring and what to save for next weekend. It's a busy busy busy 2 weeks here but will be fun.

Looks to be a good one to year and some new cars for us to enjoy. Looking forward to the 2014 Rebellion vs Travis Engen's R8, 20 old Alfas and 2 TCR cars on the list, decent stock car list with old and new cars, Callaway Z06.R and others. Looks like just under 300 cars entered in a multitude of classes. It's my annual spring vacation and very much look forward to it every year now. Head up early on Thursday and watch them testing before everyone comes in Friday.

You beat me to the joke! I won't be there but will be attending Monster Jam on Sunday to help celebrate from afar. I'll also probably be drinking bourbon and making bad jokes, so it will feel like I'm there.

I missed the R-One on the entry. I saw the Lola-Toyota in 2013 at Sebring, but I don't think the R-One raced here. That engine sounds fantastic.

Talking of the R-One, I hope you’ve noticed that we’re following your lead in Europe by having series for more modern cars. Masters have one series here- http://www.mastershistoricracing.com.../championship/ and another your side of the pond- http://www.mastershistoricracing.com.../championship/

France-based Peter Auto have their own take as well...... https://peterauto.peter.fr/en/grids/...ing-legends-2/

Certainly get some interesting cars!

Masters stole a few of our cars last year, Travis Engen brought his R8 over there instead of the Mitty in 2018. And think we've lost the RS Spyder and Pescarolo back to Europe. But it's fun to see some of the cars that aren't so old back on track again. A guy locally ran a GT1 Vette a couple times but haven't seen him in a few years.

I want to try to hit either Daytona or Sebring Historics one year, looks like GREAT entry lists with very nice historic cars.

Was an interesting practice mix today, 2014 Rebellion R-One Toyota (makes a beautiful noise), vs 2016 ESM WEC Ligier vs 2009 Corvette DP (believe Eric Curran was driving). For multiple laps it was all out running and the Rebellion couldn't get too far away, and the Ligier couldn't get around Curran. GREAT fun for practice day

Does the Corvette DP use a N/A V8 engine? When I watch IMSA I think the current DPIs make a great sound- much better than the WEC LMP1s....

Yup, someone else could answer exactly which but guessing an LS variety. And yes, it also makes a good, much louder and deeper, sound but we have lots of those. And more in the FLM09 Orecas, last count was 6 on the list

Edit to update

If you believe the almighty Wikipedia:
Vette DPs: The engine, built by NASCAR engine builder ECR Engines, is a 5.5L port injected*LS9[4]*with individual throttle bodies and a dry sump oil system.

LMPC: All FLM09s use a production-based*General Motors*small block*LS3*V8*which produces approximately 430 horsepower (440*PS).*
