My favourite GTs are the V8 and V12 front engined cars, so obviously a BIG Corvette fan. There’s at least two in Peter Auto Endurance Legends. Can therefore confirm that am not excited about the new V6T mid-engine version!

The 5.5L is the same engine as the C6r minus direct injection and some other goodies. It's the same engine in the Cadillac DPi and is LS architecture. The 6.2L they ran in 2017 is LT architecture.

It's a stunning day here at Road Atlanta with more Alfas than I've ever seen! I hope to post some pics later today.

The stock car race is about to start with Bill Elliot on pole.

Love the Cyclone and ‘Battlebird’....... Is the pic after the Mercury (#17) a Torino?

Although we do see the occasional one over here, also a big fan the 924 race cars (are they Carrera GTs?)

Yes, that's a David Pearson Torino and Cale Yarborough's Cyclone.

I haven't been able to find anyone that could tell me. I was hoping someone here would know! They look like spec series cars.

924s- I haven't been able to find anyone that could tell me. I was hoping someone here would know! They look like spec series cars.
I don’t think they’re ex Porsche IMSA or Le Mans GTRs as they used centre lock wheels (As in pic). Nice though!

Not on track but how often do you see a Bugeye Sprite, 3000, Jensen-Healy, Morgan and an Alfa at the same time

More likely over here, naturally, but good to see at The Mitty! Morgan showing British number plate, but presume for show / display only?

Although we do get the odd Corvair racing in Europe, obviously from the pic with 3 together, more common in the US?

Good weather, by the looks of it!

Yes, that is just a display tag. He has a Georgia "red plate" from the 1960s with the same number on the back. That is the first Jensen-Healey I've ever seen in the flesh. I see Corvairs on the street pretty frequently. There are always several race cars at SCCA and SVRA weekends I go to as well.

Yes, it was 75-80F (22-25C? I think) without a cloud in the sky all weekend.

I found the answer, these are new "tribute" cars: http://www.motorwerksracing.com/jagermeister-tribute

They only ran the Jagermeister car this weekend.
