Yep, not many tracks came claim the age, even less the small or club tracks.

We have been planning this quietly behind the scenes for a while now.
This year, we decided to break tradition and announce it VERY early.

Next year, we are planning a shin-dig the only way we know how.
Race, eat, drink, laugh. Go home tired.

Feature marques are the:
Austin Healey Sprite.
Volvo P-V series

Also turning 60 is Formula Junior who is more than welcome, and very appropriate for our track.

but really, at the end of the day, it's our party and all are invited.

Heck, i might even throw the Vintage Production car festival in the mix.

Date announced as soon as i get it from the main club .
Think Michigan at the end of July / early August.

Throw in a AK47 range session, and I'm there smile

Sounds like a wonderful idea Joel.

Hap,
Funny you mention.
Next year is also the 75th Anniversary of the Oakland County Sportsmans Club.
( we are a sub club, they are referred to as the " parent club" )

They are planning big doings for themselves.
Come and arrive early, one never knows. smile

Our event dates in 2018 will be July 27-28-29.

Kicking off a nice spread of events in and around Michigan .
Note also the VSCDA August event at Grattan, by tradition the third weekend of the month, and Put In Bay at the end of September.

Attend one, attend all.
All 3 events have their own wonderful feel and lure.
Whatever you choose ,You can't lose.

You had the MG's there two years ago and we had a great time. I'll put it on my calendar to be there next year. But I guess my Midget will be a Sprite next time; she goes both ways you know.

Hi Larry,
Glad to have you back.
Yeah, Spridgets!

Hoping for a strong Bug Eye turnout, but of course any and all family bloodline cars count,

We have a Healey 3000 that raced at Waterford in the early / mid 60's making a return after almost 50 years absent. Same owner no less. ( yes, he is in his 80's )

Be advised VSCDA is planning a Sprite shindig at Grattan too !
I am looking to secure property to store cars and rigs if folks want to drop and return later in the month.

Joel -

That's great, we need more big Healeys back on the track. Would love to see you at the ELVF next year. We're trying to get as many big Healeys there as possible. Maybe a few more "left coasters" will make it too.

Hi Doug,
Sad to say , the Healey is not mine.
It belongs to Gib Hufstader. His first race prior to becoming a big gun at GM on the Corvette program. He might be past racing age. Hoping he appoints a pilot for his race car. Google the name if you are inclined, damned strong career.

I will post pictures if i can get ahold of some.
