    Hi Ron:
    I'll be looking forward to that!!

    BRE & Lotus are a great pair - since BRE raced a Lotus/Ford...

    FWIW,

    Carl does that mean you are going to bring your car up to the Mitty? I think the #44 BRE Roadster (fresh off it's restoration will be there).

    Hi Ron:
    Yes - I talked to the guys at Grassroots/Classic Motorsports a week or two before this years Mitty - as I was trying at the last minute to make arrangements to get the Z up there - - at my age/with my health I don't like putting anything off for a month, let alone a year...

    Anyway - we talked about 2010 being for BRE - and I told them I'd do whatever I could to help put them in touch with with Mr. Mason and son etc.

    At least one of the BRE 510's is still supposed to be in Georgia somewhere - it was still being raced a few years ago. I talked to several guys a few years ago, when I was tracking down/ verifying the Monise roadster here in Florida.

    Until I found it - the owner of the 46 car thought it was the 44 car. I notified Rob that his history was wrong... I verified it was the 44 car after a discussion with John Morton about the technical details of the car. I was located near Orlando at that time.

    One of the guys in South Florida bought it and raced it for a time... Then it was shipped out to Les for restoration.. So it will be great to see it again...

    FWIW,
    Carl B.

    Adam now owns that car and Les has his work cut out for him to get that car ready in a year for the mitty.

    Talked to Gayle and Peter, they have asked me to bring my BRE Replcia Z car out as well. So We will see what can be done. I would like to bring Gerry Mason Sr's roadster out too (my 67.5 2000 is Gerry's first Datsun race car).

    So we will see what we can do.

    It's not just the cars, it is the guys too. All the BRE guys will be going as well.

    We have had the luxury of these guys getting together on the west coast. I think this will be a first for all the guys together on the east coast. It will be pretty special.

    It would be cool to resurrect the old Nissan tent at RA with several of the cars under the tent...

    Wouldn't it be great to get Mr. K there, too?

    It would be, but will not happen. I know that Peter would like to see Mr. K again, but at 100yrs old, it is too hard for him to travel that distance.

    I figured as much. We'll just have to take some good pictures for someone to send to him.

    I can take a video camera, a portable Mac and we can hook him up live from Atlanta.. He gets a real kick out of video conferences...

    I'll be looking forward to seeing everyone there...

    FWIW,
    Carl B.

    That's a great idea but I don't know if any high speed internet is available at Road Atlanta. Presumably you'd need a wireless option. It looks like AT&T may have that area covered in 3G but I don't know for sure.

    I'll just put a satellite up-link in the car trailer....

    Or better still - find someone with a huge motorhome that already has one...

    FWIW,

    How about some updates?

    I've purchased my ticket for the Thursday night dinner event where many of the BRE principals are to attend. I'm excited already.

    I attended the 1970 Run Offs at Road Atlanta while on mid-tour leave from the Republic of Korea, and then the 1972 race with my new Z car. It still has some Georga Clay up there above the muffler. Rain and mud, Road Atlanta!

    Went to the Group 44 reunion/Mitty last year as a tribute to my brother who race a D Production TR4 against the Group 44 & BRE guys and in the late 60's.

    Did you happen to see this thread? I'm trying to get the effort going for the Georgia Z Club, and I've been in touch with the club coordinator with Grassroots Motorsports Magazine.
