Don't miss the historic races in August! Lots of Datsuns will be racing and there is a Nissan Car Corral parking available.

Word on the street is that there are 4 roadsters racing this year. At least one is a widebody one with some impressive history. It ran at SCCA runoffs either last year or the year before.

Sorry, I find modern engine swaps revolting. Keep your G, R, or U series in your Roadster!

The cars I know of are
Ron Carter, 67.5 2000
Image
Mike Sweeny in a '65 1600
Image
Phil Mendelovitz driving Bob Studdard's former car. "This car was on the front row of the EP race in 1987, 1988, and 1989," Mendelovitz says. "The previous owner is Bob Studdard, who won the championship. He sold it to me on the condition that I would fix it up and bring it to the Runoffs again."
Image
And Joe Harlan's former roadster. I don't know who now owns it or will be driving it.

Should be some awesome roadster racing this year.

Green 1600 is owned by Mike C out of Seattle. That car used to be Joe Harland's. What a Racecar should look like.
