Vintage Grand Prix
« on: June 20, 2019, 23:44:48 »
Not a SL W113 event but....
For those who are in Ohio and close to the Mid-Ohio track in Lexington, this weekend is the "Vintage Grand Prix".
Usually an interesting amount of classic racers both on the track and in a show.
Saturday from noon and Sunday are race days

Really nice event, once again. Lots and lots of Porsches. Fastest on the track overall was a 2018 GT3R. Blistering speed. Declassing all competitors. In the 90 min endurance race, he lapped the 2nd place car!
No Pagodas in the extensive classic car show, but.... closest to a "SL" was this one entered as a competitor:

Sorry I missed the event. It is very worthwhile. Mid Ohio Racecourse is on a beautiful setting also. I usually go to this event, but could not make-it this year. I took the 450SLC Rally Car a few years back and ended up with a photo of it on the "Autoweek" website.
