It is not that hard to get a SCCA competition license.Actually Red, you are a better man than me. I got some track time sat and sun but the class I'm in was incredibly fast and I'm not licensed wheel to wheel. Maybe when I grow up I'll be a race car driver. According to my wife, niether of those things will ever happen. I have the utmost respect for those who have the experience and balls to run these cars flat out. If you haven't been to an event and seen their speed, you won't understand. Having a chance to see some incredible equipment and sit and talk with IMSA driving legends like fast Phil Currin and Dan Fury is a real thrill.:thumbsup:
How can you say that?? Peter Klutt (white/blue/red in the pics above) and his customer John Farano (white/blue in the pics above) were at the top of EVERY grid sheet and won the race easily over the silver Camaro (Sean Ryan) and his dad in the blue Camaro.....click this link for the race results http://www.mylaps.com/results/newResults.jsp?id=579072&ShowPerClass=0The red/white/blue vettes along with there Mustang stablemate took a whipping from most of the field, even if not truely vintage they are pretty sweet little cars. My engine is set back 12" lowered 4" set to the right 4.5" also as IMSA aloud the changes. I'm not sure I really understand SVRA or HSR's definition of vintage cars, they requested I submit my history and documentation, which I did, but others have none. i don't really care, I had a ball:thumbsup:
Yes thats the red C-3 roadster above, I first raced that car first as a silver/blue stripe 69 roadster, in 78 or 79 I bought that rear clip from a guy in Milwaukee and the Greenwood style wide nose from a different guy in WI who is still in the fiberglass business today...although he has moved on from building Corvette stuff....that is the front straight at Road America probably 79 or 80....don`t remember who was passing who.....Redvette, So this is the red c3 in the photo?? What year was this, interesting... Where you passing Brech??
Agree, the red and blue built vette is over cooked.. purposely built vintage racer, like a counterfeit rolex???
However, it still looks damn good.
