After Sebring, the Duntov crew drove 1210 miles back to the shop in Dallas, and a week later headed back out to Amelia Island, Florida for the second race of the season.
The race was held on an active airport, and more than a few SVRA drivers flew their own planes right on to the racetrack. SVRA went all out on this inaugural event and most competitors thought it was a winner. After this year’s good vibrations, next year should be special.
Tony Parella had both his 58 Corvette and his Pre-War car and he drove both of them harder than they have ever been driven.
Tony’s Pre-War car got a thrashing as well, as this normally mild mannered group got a collective case of Amelia Island red mist. They put on quite a show for the approximately 15,000 spectators.
