Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix at BeaveRun-2009

 

Great Thanks to all the good folks at Vintage Racer Group (VRG), my fellow racers.....and especially the flaggers/F&C folks, track workers, timing & scoring, registration, tech inspection, general volunteers and emergency service personnel. Great Job and for a Great Cause!

 

There are A LOT of pictures below (and they are in no particular order). In some cases, your computer may "time out" and the last number of pictures will only appear as "red Xs". If that happens press the "F5" key on your keyboard (or use the "Refresh" button at the top of the screen). Depending on your connection speed, you may have to do this several times before all the pictures "load" onto this page.

 

Note: I am sending this link out via the VRG Yahoo mailing list. If you know anyone who is not on that list, but would like to see this, please forward this link to them. Also, if you or anyone you know has Youtube In-Car Videos of the event, please send me the link to those videos and I'll be happy to include them below (with appropriate credit).

All photos taken by Nial and Linda. You are free to use them for any non-commercial purpose you wish. We tried to get all the cars at the event, so if you look below, there's a pretty good chance you're in here somewhere.

There are SIX Youtube videos below (five from me and one from Michael O.). Mine are sort of experimental since I am mixing forward-looking and rear-looking camera views. I'm still a bit new to the editing process so they may be a bit clumsy at times, but it's sort of fun to see who's following as well as who's in front.

We had a great weekend and enjoyed seeing and talking to a ton of good folks. The Spridget clogged a fuel filter on the last Sunday session (fixed in 5 minutes) and one of the "fake" headlights fell off......but that's it. Overall, pretty minor stuff. Hope to see everyone in the VRG events at NJMP and Watkins Glen.
