From what I have read so far this looks like a lot of effort goes into this great event. Is there a location and date for the British V8 2010 yet? Many Thanks.

The Heacock Classic at Virgina International Raceway provided plenty of photo ops. Here's Les Gonda and his car in victory lane:

If you saw the racing at VIR before the Durham gathering, there are some very good photos in the online (free!!) magazine, Sports Car Digest. Had a great time at VIR and British v8 2009 and looking forward to Indianapolis.

There certainly were some handsome "new" cars at this meet!



This is Mike Alexander's Buick-powered MGB:

Quite literally "clean", eh?



And this is Wayne Rippy's Oldsmobile-powered GT:

Beautiful paint, but photos don't do this color justice.

Someone please help me remember who brought this blue MGB. I'm sure I must have met the owner, but I'm having a hard time matching a face and a name with the car. The license plate indicates it's from South Carolina. The engine appears to be a Rover V8.

(Note: don't confuse this with Jim Brucato's car. Note the light blue hardtop. Also, Jim's car has an MGC bonnet. Also, that's Kelly Stevenson's blue MGB parked on the left...)

Thanks Rick, I will be on the look out for the date. I am anxious to take my Triumph Stag out for a fun weekend show and learn about all that is out there from all the other British cars guys. We take it out for a drive every minute we can here. Thanks, Rob

Curtis,
that bue B belongs to Chris Powell. It is a 3.9 Rover, High compression, T5 trans, narrowed Dord 8 in rear with 3.5 gears.
It also has AC.
I helped him put it together twice. Once with a Buick and then with the Rover. He used a D&D kit.
