How about a private screening of the Ford vs Ferrari movie for all attendees?  Imagine all those original Cobras and GT350’s in front of the movie house.

Imagine as a “Drive In”....

Coincidently SVRA has their Brickyard Invitational vintage races the 17-21st of June. Should make for a fantastic venue if the details can be worked out.

I'm out. Just a tourist trap.


Doug:  Indianapolis is far from being a tourist trap.  The race track is an exceptional facilty.   you make an excuse for every venue.  why dont you belly up to the bar and show your face for once. .  Track is 15 minute drive from airport

Yes and no. This time there will be the full complement of Group 6 (Corvette, Shelby Cobra's/GT-350's, Jaguar, Porsche, etc.) Probably looking at a 40+ field in Group 6 alone. The other run groups will have similar sized field throughout friday's practice/qualifying. Saturday and Sunday will be the actual races.

A short video of a typical Group 6 field : Turn up the volume.

I know and live in a tourist trap State.  Indy is not near to being one in comparison.  I am going to escape this island for awhile for a more exciting venue. 8)

Indy will be a great venue! Putting it on the calendar now and this year I am going to jump on the hotel reservations early. Shelby running good now, so no excuse to be driving a Volvo this time!

I would LOVE to attend!  All I need is a trailer and a towing vehicle.  Tried for #42 but to no avail.  Saving my pennies NOW!!!

COOL!
