Just enjoy it.

P.S. Ignore Johnny Millers Jag at Sebring a few years ago. I had to choose a picture and I always liked his Jag.

Very nice from both a technical feat

and  a nice distraction from the usual stuff.

A shame that guy dropped that classic motorcyle.. but at least he walked away.

Great stuff - must be chilly in Merry Ole England today, lol, lots of hats, sweaters and jackets...

I hate when that stuff happens.

This is actually a more technical form of racing because everybody balances the urge to win vs the desire to save their rides.

I think this is every bit as enjoyable to pay attention to as the "big time" racing. Maybe better in many cases.

Exactly.

I never risked my Healeys if I couldn't afford to repair damage or replace spoke wheels.

Are these guys running on original bias tires?  That would be a major factor.

I used radials for everyday driving even though I lost more than an inch of height and kept a set of bias for rallies and such.

Loved the height, hated the handling.

Spun a radial off of the rim and melted the tube once, caused a great deal of panic when I limped into a gas station in a cloud of white smoke, lol.

I am not sure of the rules for these cars. I imagine they are a combination of strict in some areas regarding meeting original spec, but a little loose in others for safety and tightening of the field of competition a little.

Never raced my Austin-Healey. Didn't need too. It was too much fun just driving it.

For a while I also had an early Fiat124 Coupe. That was a fun car too. Rated as a 1.4L It was a few CCs less. You drive it with your foot to the floor. I taught my little sister how to drive with it. So she learned with a manual and for a while thought every engine reved to the moon.
