Charity-driven GP has donated in excess of $4.35 million since 1983 to support Autism and educational organizations.
The Royale Formula Ford Challenge marked a return of open-wheel, single-seat, purpose-built racecars to the PVGP. They did not disappoint, as Christian Morici would lead virtually from the drop of the green flag, taking the win and setting a new course record in the process.
Anticipation runs high early on Saturday morning as the Pre-War/Select MG-T Series cars take to the track for the day’s first session. These cars create a time warp back to the infancy of U.S. sports car racing. Other than MG vehicles are invited to participate in this class. Peter Patterson’s Allard J2X, below, moves through “Westinghouse Turn” with the sun still on the horizon.
A hay bale chicane slows the cars on the longest straight. The “target” is an inside joke. At the end of the weekend, it is presented to the driver responsible for doing the most hay-related damage. Here Mark Sherman is more successful than most, negotiating the obstacle in his supercharged MG TD.
