Jerry, what a fun time.

I was fortunate to have participated in this event for a ten year period. HSR always does a wonderful job and the addition of motorcyles is a plus.

Jerry, et al,
I was a Great Weekend at the Walter Mitty Group 44 inc at Road Atlanta. Bob Tullius was in rare form, scroll down, his grandson in the B production Jag, his son, Russ Tullius standing next to the car and long friend Steve Benford Jr. behind the car. Louis Galanos took some great shots, as well as Steve Knoll at www.laprecord.com
I've known Steve since he was 16 yrs old when he became a Group 44 Team member. I was honored to be a part of the reunion and celebration, especially on the ride a long with Dennis Day's Spitfire, my first drive with Group 44 inc. . Tim Suddard and crew at Classic Motorsports publication, did a great job presenting the weekend celebration. Thanks for posting for others to see and enjoy. Cheers !
