Rich and some of the team at EAG got the opportunity to go to the 42nd Mitty at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta. If you’re not familiar with The Mitty, it is a series of races between various classes and groups ranging from classic European race cars such as Alfas, BMWs, and Porsches to racing prototypes. There was even older “stock” cars and GT Modern cars out racing in their respective classes.
It couldn’t be a better time to be there as there was great weather and the guys were camping right by the main straight (turn 9) where cars were nearing close to their respective top speeds. Every morning there was no need for alarms as racing began right on schedule and the roaring by cars made a pleasant wake up call for the guys.
Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta is such a great racing venue as you have the freedom to roam around and check out the different areas of the track. The “esses” is a favorite as you could see and hear the cars race up hill through the curves. Another great spot that a lot of the guys enjoyed was the turn at the end of the main straight (turn 10A). It certainly was a treat to hear all those race cars down shift through all the gears after nearing top speeds.
While there, not only were you limited to just seeing the races, but you were able to go down to the paddock where all the different classes of cars that are racing being prepped and staged. The guys got to be up close checking out all the cool cars.
