Having just come off a two-day test at Daytona, the team, cars, and drivers were ready to perform at Road Atlanta in Braselton, GA. The Mitty, one of the longest running and largest vintage race events, was the setting for Jeff Borghesi, John Reisman, Bill Hubbell, Eric Curran, Rob Albino and the members of the HH team to put their skills into gear.
For Jeff, back to back winner of the HH Customer of the Year Award 15 years running, the goal was to beat his own personal Road Atlanta best. In his Lola B2K40, he accomplished that goal, shaving
John Reisman was pleased to put his new Corvette Daytona Prototype through its paces. Having only driven the ex#31 Whelen car at the Daytona testing the week before, Mr. Reisman made quick work of making himself right at home with the newly installed paddle shift and carbon brakes.
Coming from a 2015 Sprint Race Championship with FARA, and taking the overall win of the grueling FARA 500, Bill Hubbell was looking forward to making his mark with HSR in his #230 Corvette Daytona Prototype. Indeed he did, securing ___ place in the BRM Endurance Race. Assisting him in that feat was co-driver and driver coach, Eric Curran, who had just come from a 2nd place win at the Sebring 12 hr and a 3rd place finish at Long Beach.
Fresh out of the St. Louis Car Museum, the Sunbeam Tiger was proudly debuted at Road Atlanta by Rob Albino.
Suprise 'participant' in the FORD race was Hudson Historics owner, Gordon Eggleston in his 1930 Model A. Making his way to the false grid in his all original Ford straight-faced, helmeted and gloved, he had the officials allllllmost convinced that he was an entrant. Perhaps the #30 so expertly applied in green painter's tape to the doors gave away the ruse.
Really great event with spectacular cars!
Bill's Testarosa Race car looking good at the show!

We've just returned from a great weekend at Palm Beach International Raceway. Here are some of the highlights:
Paul Reisman came to this weekend’s Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) Palm Beach Grand Prix expecting to compete in his Porsche Boxster in The Stuttgart Cup™ Series but instead found his way to an unexpected victory in Friday’s Valentine’s Day night race at the wheel of a rented Porsche Cayman S. Paul became the first driver to take first place in both a Boxster and a Cayman in the Stuttgart Cup! Thank you Bill Ridell and team for the rental and the support throughout the weekend!
Johnny won the Friday night race, and finished third on Saturday Race 1 after a front straight electrical problem with his Lola.
Justin won the Saturday Race 1 and the Sunday Race 2 for the GTP/WSC race group 6! Good job Justin!
With a little help from his friends... Fred went from last place to a First place finish in the Saturday Enduro! Way to go Fred!!
John and Paul stayed out front in Saturday's GT Enduro, bringing the #225 Porsche home to a first overal win, and with Justin first in class, the podium was a family affair...
Saturday night Paul and Judy had the HH crew to dinner, thank you very much Paul!
Jeff had one goal for the weekend: break the 1:20 barrier...
Not only did he break a minute twenty, he ran almost the entire race doing 19's!!
Jeff finished 2nd in class in the Sunday morning race! Congrats Jeff!
Congratulations to Paul and Johnny Reisman, who won the People's Choice Award on Sunday, pretty good way to end the event!
We're looking forward to our next event, see you at the Mitty...
