Just 5 weeks to go!!
Wow! We are close to the end of January and Sebring is less than FIVE WEEKS away! I will soon confirm details of the race schedule, yet to be finalised, but meanwhile don't forget there are racing opportunities both before and after 'our' event for those travelling long distances and able to spend additional time in Florida.
While at Sebring do please find time to get to the following gatherings and meet with the special guests and fellow Elva owners and enthusiasts.
Wednesday 12th (6.30pm) an "Elva Reception" at the SVRA tent for drivers and friends with appetisers and some wonderful footage of the 1958 Watkins Glen race featuring Rip Ripley and his Elva Mk.II.
Friday 14th (6.30pm) an evening BBQ supper and presentations at the SVRA tent. Tickets are $20 each for food/drink and the evening will include Elva VIP drivers and families plus an Awards Ceremony. Earlier in the day there will be the drive to downtown Sebring and hopefully many Elva cars/drivers will join the fun.
Friday 14th will include the 'Legends' Cocktail party for invited guests.
Saturday 15th will include morning Exhibition laps before the big feature race with opportunities for Elva cars to participate. Lunch party at the SVRA tent.
While the social meetings will be relaxed and informal, we do need to get a feel of likely numbers and tickets will be issued before on request. Please email me and I will either reserve for collection at the circuit, or post if preferred. There will also be very special T-shirts, decals, patches and just maybe some Elva Ale. If you want to reserve a shirt then again feel free to email me indicating numbers and most importantly sizes.
I have also been asked to bring some items including Elva badges (I have a few of all types) so contact me if there is something you need from the good ol' UK . Most importantly of all, do please make contact with the SVRA for race entry details, or if you are attending without your car, be sure to come and enjoy some great camaraderie with fellow enthusiasts at this unique anniversary.
See you soon! All best wishes. Rog.
