Jaguar ‘E2A’ is sold at Bonhams - The missing link prototype.

Regulation changes, which included a displacement limit of 3.0L, rendered the Jaguar D-Type virtually obsolete for the '58 season. By then the iconic Jaguar had won Le Mans 3 times in a row. The Works team had already w/drawn from active racing at the end of '56, having clinched the important Le Mans race 4 times in the last 6 attempts. In '57 privateer teams like Ecurie Ecosse & Briggs Cunningham continued to race the D-Type, w/the former adding a 3rd victory to the machine's tally. Some… Continue

2008 Carrera -- Original Pan Am

This year we can toast the Original Pan Am class. Just a few years ago OPA almost disappeared, but it has slowly returned and this year has reached fifteen cars. Wonderful!

It's an extremely diverse class, too. Theere's a 356 Porsche listed, along with a 190D Mercedes that plans to run the event on bio-fuel (McDonald's old french fry grease).

Carson Scheller in his strong '54 Ford Vicky is returning to defend his championship, and you can be sure than Rich Morrision,… Continue

Weekend Racing at H2H

I thought I would share this with the group.

I ran a non-traditional autocross at a new driving facility just outside San Marcos, Tx called Harris Hill Road. (H2R) The facility is sort of a “no-racing” race track with a club-like membership program that allows members to enjoy lapping sessions during the week and on weekends. I believe the track will be made available for non-competitive club events and lap days. (

The track is well laid out and… Continue

MJDrive: Race to Formula 1 ONLINE DIARY

Dear VRL crew,

Just wanted to invite you all to keep an eye on the only diary I am writing to keep everyone informed as to my whereabouts. As many of you know I recently moved to the United kingdom from Dallas, Texas to pursue motorsport at the highest level, Formula 1.

It's a long shot, but someone is going to race Formula 1. I am seriously fast, and I think that person should be me.

If any of you are interested in following along I am keeping a a regular diary… Continue

Race Report – FC921

I ran my ’62 Spitfire Racer for the first time yesterday and I have to say I exceeded all my expectations.

The hardest part was the 7:00AM departure from Cedar Park for the 100 mile drive down to the AT&T center in San Antonio. It was clear but cold, in the high 30s when we left.…

Where I am...

Sadly, due to a new job here in the KC area, I was missing from the October Hallett event. I still have my 72-ish Lynx B sitting in my warehouse. I finally made some progress on it recently when I sawed-off the original steering wheel (how did anyone fit in the car??) and had a quick-disconnect hub welded to the steering shaft.

With some wonderful pictures provided by fellow Lynx B owner, Rob Newton, I discovered that one of the fine previous owners had cut off the mounting locations… Continue
