mmhh.... "Großer Preis von Georgia"....sounds very familiar to me :-) But don´t send any cars to me, because I have no track at home at the moment . There will be a new one, of course, sometime...the "Isle of Jersey road race", very interesting scenery!
Mel Ault and the team at Pre Wing have kindly offered some prizes--Four shells from their new line of '60's F1 cars. The cars will be awarded to the Concours winner and the three cars on the podium at the conclusion of the series. Here's a link to the Pre Wing site, if you haven't visited it yet.
Just got home after my trip to Chicago and Fort Wayne. I'm tired but happy.
Taffy gets the BT19, Jay the BT24, Charles the Cooper T60 and I'll have another Hondola. I'll have those packed up in a few days and get the cars out to all of you.
Jay, Matt and Ken.. you were great race hosts... hope we can count on you again next year. There should be a few more models to choose from as the Prewing guys have started production and there's a Matra MS10 now available from Penelope Pitlane. Good stuff.
My 2012 driver was great, I just need to change the car! I'm thinking that next year will be a 'blue' year for my proxy cars. So JYS moves from BRM to Matra in 2013.
First fitting of my 2013 GPd ? car... it's a bit of a ground hugger right now, but I need to source the correct sized wheels and tires, after which I'll make some adjustments. No wobbly front wheels on this car.. at least not yet.

After several days between hope and dispair I´m a lucky man again. A "no-return-situation" would have been too frustrating for me... I have never been waiting for the postman´s ringing like in these days. The Ferrari´s way from Germany to the USA only took 5 or 7 days, I cannot imagine, why the way back has taken so long.
But the lucky end of this story gives me the power to plan my next years car!
