we ran it 2 1/2 times; cooper/mg and c3 cunningham.  no crew, couple of stopwatches.  back when they had a trophy for the best car from each country, we were beaten for the u.s.a. trophy in '94 by a couple germans in a 300sl who entered from their scottsdale address.  i don't think they had us passports...oh was great fun.  i also navigated for sandy orttewell in his '24 alfa 1500 sport in '05.  it had about half as many entrants then
