Another of the VRCBC's many intrepid, jet-setting reporters has just submitted his latest race report. Gunter Pichler attended the SVRA (Sportscar Vintage Racing Association) Sebring Vintage Classic at historic Sebring International Raceway over the March 2-5 weekend, and sent us some of his photographs of the great cars that were in action.

Thanks Gunter!

The VRCBC 'assigns' (ahem) its 'correspondents' to race events all over the world! This weekend, Gunter Pichler left his well-known Vintage racing XKE at home and attended the HSR (Historic Sportscar Racing Ltd.) races supporting the Mobil1 12 Hours of Sebring in Florida. He sent us a few photos of the Vintage action. Thanks Gunter!

Well known MG devotees (and long time VRCBC members) Ralph and Michael Zbarsky have just completed a great trip to Sebring. This year Sebring celebrated the 60th Anniversary of the famous 12 Hours endurance race. As part of this celebration, the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) support race honoured the 50th Anniversary of the last MGA participation in the 12 Hours. A total of 19 different MGAs participated in the 12 Hours over the 1956 to 1962 period. Ten of those cars are known to have survived and eight of them were at Sebring this year.

Michael raced their 1959 MGA Twin Cam roadster (#53) - maybe the last time a MGA Twin Cam will take the Green Flag / Chequered Flag combo at the Sebring track? And Ralph raced their 1967 MGB GT (#60). This former BMC Works Team car has some former 'history' at Sebring. (Check out this You Tube video of the 1970 race around the 2:20 mark!) Ralph must have retrieved that wheel because the car is beautifully restored now. See below.
