Live From the Mitty!

Today (Friday, April 29) is the first day of the 2011 Mitty (4/29 - 5/1) so this thread will have "live" day-to-day updates over the weekend.

I'll get it started but anyone else with neat photos, videos or stories please post them up here!

Here's the scene at Camp Tim:

Camp out yes, alcohol no. We fill the beer cans and bottles with spring water so that at least other people think we're having a good time.

That could be the famous Kentetsu. He said his butt hurt, which would be consistent with a 15 hour drive down from Michigan.

Ray, these pictures are making me totally bummed than I have to miss this. My favorite event at Road Atlanta, and with a lot of nice RXs and awesome rotor heads. I am starting to get annoyed with school completely controlling my life. I hope to make it to the June OGTA meet though.

Keep the pics coming!

Thanks for the kudos guys, I'll post the Sunday pics today. The folks from up at DGRR plan to make a grand appearance today, that should be interesting!

I'm still trying to figure out how to get some decent videos of the cars on the track but so far mostly all I get is blurs. Maybe Tim or Chris can come up with some better technology and technique to show you the best part, all those vintage race cars out there mixing it up like they were brand new.

Great pics Ray (and Gene). I'll get mine up soon along with a video or 2.

I hope everyone had a good time and got home safely. I had a blast.
