[size=10pt]April 28-May 1, 2011 – RoadAtlanta; Braselton, GA

The 2011 theMitty Speedfest is returning to Road Atlanta from April 28-May 1 for our annual celebration of all things automotive, and this year’s event promises to be the best yet.

Grand Marshal:
Jim Downing will be our guest of honor at the event,. We’ll be recognizing the accomplishments of Jim and the rest of the Brock Racing Enterprises team. Jim will be on hand throughout the weekend to check out the races and meet fans. Plan on stopping by the Classic Motorsports tent to attend an autograph session.

Featured Marque:
Of course, no celebration of racing accomplishments would be complete without the participation of our featured marque, Mazda. The 2011 Mitty will feature many of the incredible cars the company has built over the years. Expect to see several of the original Mazda race cars that have landed in the winner’s circle; these historic racing cars will be on display all weekend—when they’re not on track, of course. Be sure to look for many other Mazda surprises at The Mitty as well.

A Japanese Invasion:
This year’s event will also be a celebration of all Japanese sports cars. We expect a record number of cars from makes such as Datsun/Nissan, Toyota, Honda and, of course, Mazda. The MX-5 Miata will have a special corral.

Mazda Drivers Party:
After the racing action on Friday, Mazda will host a special party open to anyone with a Mazda key in their pocket. Come to meet and talk with the Mazda Pro racers, factory representatives, and executives that help make this company the number-one choice of amateur racers.

Classic Motorsports Small Bore Cup Race:
The Classic Motorsports Mitty will host the second round of the 2011 Classic Motorsports Small Bore Cup. The series is open to small-bore cars produced before 1965 and their continuation counterparts. This leg of the competition promises to be a hotly contested battle among our readers’ favorite cars.

Kumho Autocross:
Thanks to our friends at Kumho Tires USA, the 2011 Mitty will again offer spectators the chance to drive a Kumho-equipped Mazda MX-5 around our infield autocross course. This driving experience is completely free of charge, so make sure you sign up for some top-down driving fun!

Moss Pub:
The Moss pub will be open for business during the evening hours on Friday and Saturday night. Come by for a cold drink and the best bench racing you’ll find this side of Siebkins. You can also challenge a friend to a game of darts or a race around our slot car track. And don’t miss the live music performed by Wes Cobb on Saturday night.

Historic Stock cars:
You won’t find any cookie-cutter “Cars of Tomorrow” here—HSR’s Historic Stock Car class features a full field of competitive racers piloting the cars from NASCAR’s past. Be sure to walk through the paddock to see these famous former race winners.

We look forward to seeing you all at the Classic Motorsports Mitty. For more information, go to www.themitty.com[/size].
For those that haven't been to theMitty... it's mainly geared towards all things classic motorsports. Cars on the track ranges from 1.8L 1960's era European racing marques (Jaguar, Triumphs, MGB, Ferraris) to 1970-late1990's era LeMans prototypes to SkipBarber cart series and even the Mazda mx5 cup. It has evolved into a gathering of car enthusiasts of different manufacturers classic and modern. The infield is pretty much a classic motorsports carshow (Porsches, Jaguars, Ferraris, Corvettes, Nissan/Datsun, classic Hondas, etc, etc).

In addition, both of the Dempsey Racing RX-8 (Rolex Grand-Am GT series) will be at the event and Patrick Dempsey is expected to be there as well. We also would like to have the largest continuous line of Mazda's on track at the same time. We have confirmed, the the first ever production RX-7 will be at the event as well. The goal is to get as many Mazda owners we can at this event! Last year it was everything Nissan/Datsun...this year it'll be Mazda! So please show up. More details will be passed along when I get them.

BTW...This event I got to see a MGB GT race.


One month later I got my own '73 MGB GT, spent months restoring & working on it. In the end....it has been my favorite car to get into and drive. I even AutoX regularly in it. I can thank theMitty for it. :]



So please come on out and join the TN/North AL Mazda group and the TeamOhio clan from (m24/7) in celebrating what Mazda has done for motorsports both past, present and future.

Lauren and I are planning on attending. We'll probably run through the dragon on the way back since it's not too far out of the way.
