Orange Cup Regatta Lakeland Florida 2023


             October 20-22 in Lakeland, FL, the 85th running of the Orange Cup Regatta

                   Pre race festivities included the Cypress Gardens Skiers- Impressive!

This post will feature several photos from an action packed race weekend.  I was one of the 'Crew' for Jim Aid and the A33 'In Cahoots Again' team.  Jim had a stellar weekend, winning all eight of the eight heats he was in. As far as I know no other team ran as many heats.

Here's several pictures to give you an idea of what it was like to be there. It was a perfect weather weekend, down here in sunny  Florida.

Get ready to race!

 Jim Aid on the charge!

One of two flip overs- no injuries except a battered boat.

Screaming- Class winner!

The winner of eight out of eight heats- Jim Aid!

                          Not a good day for the Penzoil team- a massive flip over; no one hurt.

                                              Thank you to all the volunteers and rescue crew!

                                            Thanks to the crew of the A33- Well done.

Must See Raiti's Rides Testing An Astounding Elantra N

 Joe Raiti from Raiti's Rides is one of my favorite You Tube reviewers.  He's as good as they get and I'm highlighting this today to spread the word about how good The Hyundai Elantra N is.  And to show Joe is a straight shooter- he owns a new, Civic Type R.  There's no knocks on this rockin' Cyber Gray rocket.

You gotta see this and wait until you hear the 1/4 mile time set by this mildly tuned 'N'.

And here's my Cyber Gray 'N' with a Six Speed

HSR Classic Watkins Glen International 2023

 Here are some pictures from the June HSR Classic at Watkins Glen International. I took pictures for two friends that were racing there so that's why the multiple pictures of some of the same cars.

I never like it when cars crash, especially vintage cars.  I know how much work goes into restoring them and the heartbreak when something goes wrong. Having said that, I did capture one paticular crash sequence that tells this story of heartbreak.  I hope both the Datsun Z and the BMW get restored back to their original glory.

Take a look:

                  And now for some happier photos:

That's all for now.   Hope you enjoyed the pictures.

Pictures From Watkins Glen International Glen IMSA Weekend - June 2023

 Here's a few pictures of the racing action June 22- 25, 2023 at Watkins Glen International. Included in the competition were the Mazda MX-5 Cup, Porsche Carrera Cup, Lamborghini Super Trofeo and my favorite, the IMSA Pilot Challenge featuring Grand Sport and Touring cars.  Since my car is an Elantra N, I love seeing 'my car' on the race track.  

So here you go:        From the Michelin Pilot Challenge 120

                                     From The IMSA GT Daytona and GT Daytona Pro Classes

                                              From The Lamborghini Super Trofeo Races

                                                      From the Mazda MX-5 Races

                                    One of my favorite cars- the C8 Corvette

And to see some of the GTP, LMP 2 and LMP3 cars see my previous blog post.  This is just a sample of the hundreds of photos I took that weekend.
