    Unfortunate and avoidable from the details in the story. All the more reason to check spinners and wheel nuts twice before heading out. NOOOOO! Jim Clark's Lotus 49 Crashed At Monaco Historic Grand Prix

    Vintage Austin Healey F Prod at COTA

    This was a really fun day. Took my "new" Vintage F Production Sprite to a track day at COTA and buzzed around a few Porsches. They pulled me on the long straights but this little go-kart handles like an absolute dream. My data logger was consistently reading 1.15-1.25 Gs in the corners on 5"...
