                                                            This year&rsquo;s <em>Classic Motorsports</em> Mitty Presented by <a href="http://www.mazdausa.com">Mazda</a> and sanctioned by <a href="http://www.hsrrace.com/">Historic Sportscar Racing</a> featured something for everyone, with historic race cars, sports cars on the infeld, vendors, workshops and parties.<br />
                                                            <br />
                                                            <img align="right" alt="can am 1" border="0" height="119" hspace="5" src="https://9507df7b2f-custmedia.vresp.com/c4cdeb0f38/can%20am%201.jpg" style="width: 180px; height: 120px;" title="can am 1" vspace="5" width="179" />The highlight of the Mitty&rsquo;s racing events was the historic Can-Am reunion. More than 20 of these historic cars participated in the weekend events, and they were a thrill to see and hear during the weekend.<br />
                                                            <br />
                                                            <br />
                                                            <br />
                                                            <img align="left" alt="MG Paddock 2 2" border="0" height="138" hspace="5" src="https://9507df7b2f-custmedia.vresp.com/c4cdeb0f38/MG%20Paddock%202%202.jpg" style="width: 220px; height: 139px;" title="MG Paddock 2 2" vspace="5" width="220" />We saw scores of MGs, our 2013 featured marque, in the MG car corral and on track during the parade laps throughout the weekend. The MG oorral was hosted by our friends at the <a href="http://www.peachtreemg.com/">Peachtree MG Registry</a> and the <a href="http://www.namgbr.org/">North American MGB Registry</a>, who grilled hot dogs and hamburgers for the MG car corral attendees throughout the weekend.<br />
                                                            <br />
                                                            <br />
                                                            <img align="right" alt="mitty 1 crop" border="0" height="112" hspace="5" src="https://9507df7b2f-custmedia.vresp.com/c4cdeb0f38/mitty%201%20crop.jpg" style="width: 176px; height: 112px;" title="mitty 1 crop" vspace="5" width="175" />Another club on hand, <a href="http://www.classicminis.org/">Classic Minis United</a>, held an event on site at this year&rsquo;s Mitty. In addition to their car corral, they&nbsp; participated in the big noon parade lap and&nbsp; had a Saturday driving tour. We want to thank Mike Guido and the club for bringing out these terrific cars.<br />
                                                            <br />
                                                            <img align="left" alt="hobbs pic crop" border="0" height="136" hspace="5" src="https://9507df7b2f-custmedia.vresp.com/c4cdeb0f38/hobbs%20pic%20crop.jpg" style="width: 176px; height: 136px;" title="hobbs pic crop" vspace="5" width="175" />Finally, the <em>Classic Motorsports</em> Mitty would be nothing without a terrifc grand marshal, and this year, David Hobbs definitely fit the bill. The racing great was available all weekend to speak with fans, sign autographs and pose for pictures. We again want to thank David for his time and for being such a great ambassador for our event.<br />
                                                            <br />

                                            Our friend Murray Smith, chairman of Lime Rock Park&rsquo;s <a href="http://www.limerock.com/index.php?option=com_content&amp;view=article&amp;id=66&amp;Itemid=60">Historic Festival 31</a>, called to let us know that he is now accepting race car entries for the big Labor Day weekend (August 30-September 2) vintage racing extravaganza. &ldquo;We again expect at least 300 cars, but we do limit the total count so as to ensure everyone gets the maximum amount of quality seat time: practice, qualifying and four races,&rdquo; Smith said.<br />

                                            The Lime Rock Historic Festival is comprised of three days of racing for authentic vintage and historic automobiles, in 10 groups. &ldquo;There are races for cars built before 1939, including some of the great and powerful cars driven by heroes like Tazio Nuvolari and Richard Seaman,&rdquo; Smith told us. In addition, the Ken Epsman-led Trans-Am cars&ndash;the real cars from 1966 to 1972&ndash;visit the East Coast from their home in California.<br />
