U.S. Vintage Grand Prix @ Watkins Glen

It doesn’t seem real that two weeks have passed by since the SVRA U.S. Vintage Grand Prix presented by Jaguar @ Watkins Glen. Time flies by before you know it. Earlier this week I submitted the event coverage article for Victory Lane Magazine. I’ll post it here once the Victory Lane issue is out. Until then, here’s a few shots of some of my favorite cars of the weekend. For some reason they all seem to be red. Hmmm, interesting. Enjoy….TJ.

The Historic Trans-Am Series cars were the stars of the weekend. Here’s Andrew Alcazar’s Ford Mustang Boss 302.

A work of art. This Surtees TS-5 run by Mark Harmer, was an ex-David Hobbs Formula 5000 car. It even had Hobbs’ autograph on the car next to his name.

This 1968 Alfa Romeo T33/2 Daytona of Jay Iliohan has an impressive history with former drivers such as Mario Andretti and Lucien Bianchi.

The immaculate 1985 Porsche 962 driven by Bill Hawe.
