  • OK here is the horses mouth IMSA. See my note below.
    I was deeply disappointed to see that after many years of traditionally including Historic/Vintage racing on the 12 Hour schedule, they are not included.
    I have for many years driven those support races as well as taken part in the downtown faux tech and drivers parties at the Sebring center.
    I have seen fans very supportive of being able to see the older cars off of the mainstream. They usually mention "I use to own one of those". Once after a spin they offered me food and drink at the fence. They definitely come out for more than just the "Big Show", they also enjoy the opening acts. For some, Sebring 12 Hours is the only race they will attend. It is there yearly vacation.
    The drivers as well appreciate the opportunity to race in front of such a large crowd, many who may not have the chance to witness the older cars anywhere else.
    For me the Historics were my one "Fun" race after a season of serious racing elsewhere. A chance to be a participant in a big show, not just a busy owner/driver chasing a podium finish.
    I have talked to many fans and drivers on many different websites that are very upset with this  development.  They wonder just when IMSA started to forget about the racers and the fans in exchange for a better financial arrangement. It's been said all IMSA cares about is the money. If this is so, I will be happy to launch a worldwide boycott of IMSA events throughout the internet. Perhaps the loss of that income will prod you into reconsideration of a very bad decision. It's going to be a long year.
    Regards, D.C.Fresch
    I will be sending this out as well as flooding websites with it.
    If this means anything to you at all. I suggest you use my note as a template and send IMSA a missive declaring your displeasure and intention to boycott the events.
    This has been degrading since the end of ALMS.

  • REMINDER: Watch Historic Racing on TV Tonight !!!

    Hi All,

    Don't forget to check out the Premier of my TV Series GT RACER.
    TONIGHT (!) on Discovery's HD Theater at 8:00 PM ET.
    More details are on my blog on the VRL or here:

    ... and let me know what you think.

  • I am currently doing some research for an article on the 1965 Sebring 12 Hour race. This is the race that Chaparral won and also the race that had the deluge of 5 inches of rain that flooded the track. If you were at that event I would like to talk (interview) you about your remembrances of that event. Please let me know if you are interested. You can email me at:
  • This group is great!

    I thought you Vintage Car fans might be interested to learn that our film production produced a TV-series called GT-RACER, featuring races from around the world. We have some great footage of races like the Nurburgring, Laguna Seca, Spa, Silverstone, Lime Rock and the Porto's Street Circuit!

    GT-RACER is now out on DVD. You can see trailers on the director's page on the VRL here:

    Also, make sure you check out Shaken & Stirred, a Cinema Verite Documentary devoted to classic Aston Martin racing at Spa!

    You can also order the DVDs here:

    For VRL members we put in a great discount that you get by entering this discount code: "JGFILM"

    Hopefully we get some feedback how you liked the films.
    We have a group on the VRL to discuss them that is here:

    Best Wishes from John Galt Films
  • Bondurant will be there at Monterey as well. See you all there!
  • I'll be there with my Abarth Ritmo 100TC convertible; the only one left of the 10 Abarth Ritmo convertibles ever built! (4 junkers are known to exist)
  • Inviting everyone to join us during the famous Monterey Car Week at La Dolce Vita Automobili at Black Horse Friday, August 14, 2009. We will have incredible sports cars, exotic cars and vintage race cars, automotive design pavilion, celebration of Maserati Days, Celebration of the 75th Anniversary of Citroen Traction Avanto on the European Fairway, Alfa Romeos Through the Years display, Silent Auction and more for your enjoyment on the lush greens of Black Horse Golf Course on the Monterey Peninsula near the blue Pacific.

  • The focus of the latest issue on the 1957 Aston Martin DBR1, Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori combined with Casey's editorial on Braun GP all combine to make a winner of a magazine. Ad Pete Lyon's input, what else do you need? Of course they occasionally publish my images so maybe I may be a little prejudice? Still a good read if not the best American vintage publication.

Sebring 12 Hours.....Historic/Vintage racing

Just got off the phone with Wayne Estes at Sebring Raceway about the lack of Historic/vintage racing at this years 12 Hours. He says he fought for it but IMSA shot it down with the explanation that HSR was more of a car club than vintage racing and had too many Mazda Miatas (WTF, I have NEVER seen a Miata at a HSR race) He hopes to get it back next year. If you are so inclined, call the track and give him more ammo to use in his fight against' IMSA. 800 626 RACE. Make this viral if you want to…

Can-Am Designer Peter Bryant Passes Away

It is with a great deal of sadness that I relay that racecar designer Peter Bryant died last night of a heart attack at his home in Las Vegas.Peter started out as a mechanic in Formula One, but eventually went on to design his own Can-Am car, the impressive Ti22 "Titanium" car that Jackie Oliver drove to great effect in 1970, finishing a stunning 2nd at Laguna Seca that year.I had the good fortune of spending some time with Peter, just this past weekend, at the Riverside Reunion, and as always…

John Fitch Needs Our Help

Motor racing’s senior statesman, 92-year-old John Fitch, is being threatened with the loss of his home near Lime Rock where he has lived for more than 50 years. The house was built before the Revolution of 1776. The state now claims, however, that a pair of 1,000-gallon underground heating oil tanks on his property are leaking and releasing pollutants into the surrounding soil and the local water table.Ironically, it was Fitch himself who originally discovered and reported the leakage on his…

This may be slightly off-topic, but in light of its "historical" impact...maybe not.Am I alone in my thinking that GM should be allowed to quickly slip under the waves? Up until this morning I had grudgingly believed that all three US manufacturers needed to be saved...if for no other reason than the horrible, downstream ripple effects it would create if they were allowed to go under. However, this morning's news reported that GM posted a $9.6 billion(!) loss in the fourth quarter of last year…
