I just ran across this thread, anybody know any more about this?

http://www.britishspeed.com/forum/showthread.php?4368-English-Ford-Reunion-%28including-Lotus-Cortinas%29&s=57ce0982510c9792df334f5b9fde87d6&p=78309#post78309

On Saturday April 30th and Sunday May 1st. The SCCA, along with HSR-West, will be holding their only "vintage" race event of the year at Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca. In addition to some other featured races, we are gathering for a ENGLISH FORD Reunion featuring Anglia's, Escort's and the legendary Lotus Cortina.

FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO RACE
There will be plenty of track time for all involved. Saturday will have a 15 minute warm up session, a 15 minute timed qualifying session and a 25 minute feature race. Sunday will have a 20 minute warm up and a 25 minute feature later in the day. Our cars will be run in a "small bore" production class with the exception of later model Escorts that have the option to run in "big bore production". All this on one of the most beautiful and challenging world class facilities around.

The SCCA has asked that all of the English Ford race cars park together in the paddock. Special parking for all street cars will also be available. SCCA is also offering a lap of the track and lunch for $20.00.

BANQUET -
On Saturday night, we will feature a special dinner for all of you English Ford and Lotus fans out there. Legendary racer Bob Winkelmann will be one of our special guests, bringing along a ton of old race photos and the stories to back them up. Joining Bob will be former TEAM LOTUS mechanic, Syd Carr. Syd worked on the Team Lotus Cortina race team with Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Jackie Stewart and a host of other hero drivers from the 60's. Syd also worked on the Formula Two and Formula One race teams. Syd will also be sharing photos and stories. We are in the process of scanning all of these photos will use a LCD system to show them. Both will be open to Q & A during the evening. This is a night not to miss.

INTERESTED?
WE NEED TO GET AN IDEA ON HOW MANY WILL ATTEND. If you think you are attending the weekend please get back to me asap. We have had interest from New England to Florida to Washington State to Texas. Ross Bremer has inquired about bringing 4 cars all the way from Florida. Three Lotus Cortinas are coming down from the Pacific Northwest.

For you Lotus fans this is a chance to meet some of the folks who made history. We invite you all.

It should be an interesting event for us EnFo fans. I'm planning on bringing an Anglia 124E and a Cortina MK1 GT. It's only a couple hour drive to Monterey from San Mateo. I will post some pictures.

I was just talking with Mark Viskov and he told mer about this event. He expects quite a few cars from all over the West Coast to attend (both on and off the track). He says there hasn't been an event like this in years. Sounds like the year to be there is possible.

This picture of you and the Anglia would make a great avatar photo.

Thanks, Michael. We were allowed to drive our Anglia on a 5 lap demo run with a group of Lotus Cortinas and Mark's Capri MK1 1600,
