The Vintage Racer Group at The Glen-Oct 2011.
Weather was mixed but racing was great. Friday and Saturday morning were dry and Sunday was good all day. As usual, the scenery and Fall colours in the Fingers lakes were glorious.
There are a lot of pictures on the links below. 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. I think Linda and I got at least one shot of every car. As always, you are free to take any of these photos for personal use.
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.

Since some of the racers had missed some time due to the afternoon rains, the VRG board decided to let everyone enter the enduro for free. This was a great idea and was really well received by the racers. It provided some nice, extra seat time for anyone interested. This is one of the nice things about VRG; it's a non-profit (501-c) organization that only takes in as much money as it needs. In total over 52 people entered the enduro. Despite the speed differentials and the mix of cars, everyone "played nice": a testimony to the good sense and attitude of VRG drivers. Thanks to John F. for lending me his Flip camera after mine got drenched and refused to turn on.

A lot of "pass or be passed" shots in this video. I was mostly in the "be passed" category.

Great stuff! I think it's safe to say that Pete and I had huge fun making this video.

Dry. Better for an open British car.

Not so good for an open British car......or my trusty Flip camera, which eventually died of exposure.

This one was a bit slow because it was the first session. Many of us were learning or "remembering" the track.

Taken with a $25 Vivitar Solid State camcorder which is barely better than a cell phone camera.
