Watkins Glen Zippo Vintage Grand Prix and More
After winning Best in Show at the Watkins Glen Grand Prix Festival Concourse,  #43 finally made it onto the track at the Glen last September, if only for a few parade laps. This shot was taken entering turn #3 just before the start of the back straight. The previous week #43 had won the post 1960 racing class at the Lime Rock Vintage Fall Festival Concourse. I received an invitation to show the car at the Amelia Island Concourse in Florida in March 2003, where in spite of torrential rain, we did receive an Amelia Trophy. Number 43 also received the Chief Judge's Award from Ed Herrmann at the Greenwich Connecticut Concours Europa in June 2003.  Next, I would like to move on to some vintage racing if I can find any vintage racing group that will allow the car to run in it's 1961 trim. 
The photo below was taken on the original 1948-52 Watkins Glen GP street course, just after crossing the stone bridge hairpin. The Armco barriers on the modern course are  less intimidating ( and a lot less attractive) than the trees, telephone poles, stone walls and ditches that line the original road course. It must have taken a lot of intestinal fortitude back then to push an MGTC to the limit on the old 6.6 mile road course.
Two views of the modern track as seen from the passenger seat. Once the cars spread out a bit you could pick up the pace and enjoy the track.
