    just thought I would throw this reminder out to the general membership.  this weekend is the 41st annual Lime rock Historics and Vintage racing weekend.  Tons of vintage cars pounding around the track all weekend.  On track activity is Friday/Saturday and Monday…Sunday is the Sunday in the Park Gathering of marques.  HUGE car show that goes all around the track with a judged concours on the front straight.  this year the featured marque will be Chrysler…and yes, there will be one of the surviving turbine cars on display. One clubmember, Mike Zilnick will have a car in the Concours…no, not his Miata, but the car pictured here…1971 australian Chrysler Charger. I know several other Clubmembers will be there with their Miatas as there is a designated area just for Miatas in the show. I also know of at least one other Clubmember and family that will have not just their Miata, but most likely a VW KarmanGhia or Porsche 356. it is not unusual for a Clubmember to walk away with the best Miata award presented by the track.  This is open to everyone…See the pic below of Bob McManus…runs 9-3 on sunday…

    Thanks for the reminder, Joe…Interesting list to say the least…. Haven’t 100% decided yet, but as in the past, my grandson loves going to this in the Miata and “parking on the track with other Miata’s”….I assume we go in, pay upon arrival at gate or??, and will be directed as needed to the track and Miata line up?

    Thanks

    John

    yup…follow the directions when you get in…the Miatas are usually at the exit of the right hand turn coming onto the newly named Paul Newman straight. Arrive early…stay late..lots to see
