As the last checkered flag falls and the sun sets on the 2002 Zippo U.S. Vintage Grand Prix Weekend at Watkins Glen International, it also concludes the 2002 spectator event season at WGI as well. But Sunday was no different then the rest of the action-packed weekend, which included a full day of racing including, ten group races, the Mike Stott - EBS/Paine Webber Vintage Enduro, New York Governors Cup Thundersports Series Race and the Mini Clash Invitational race. Todays main event, the New York Governors Cup Thundersports Series race got underway with legendary driver Juan Manual Fangio II serving as grand marshal and giving the command to start your engines. In a dominating win, Aaron Hsu in his 1988 Porsche 962C beat out his brother Alec Hsu by a full lap. Aarons brother Alec finished second driving his 1987 Porsche 962C, while rounding out the top three was a 1987 Porsche 962C driven by Joe Graziano. And for the Mini Clash Invitational, it proved to be exciting race with a four-wide battle for second place at the checkered flag. David Reid won overall in his 1966 Austion Cooper-S. Rounding out the top five in the spectacular finish was Larry Coste in a 1965 Morris Cooper-S, Dave Morgan in a 1968 Mini Cooper-S, Larry Hallowa in a 1968 Mini Cooper-S and Greg Wood in a 1965 Mooris-Cooper-S. The Mike Stott EBS/Paine Webber Vintage Enduro proved to be an action packed race with Stephen Hunter in a 1959 Porsche 356a coming out on top while Richard Rzepkowski finished second in his 1971 MG Midget and Richard Barnes was third in a 1965 Bobsy SR3.
Gheeez...2,250 cars is a hella lot. If you are into classic cars, hot rods, flame throwing, car balancing etc, then you should have come. You could walk around for hours and still not see every car in its finest detail. Wheels Of Time sponsored the Rod & Custom Jamboree and did a remarkable job at it, we just wish the weather had cooperated a little better. You would think with the drought the Lehigh Valley has been having, we would have seen a sunny sky. But this didnt stop car enthusiasts from coming. Young children had the privilege of seeing the massive flames shoot out the back of the hot rods...very impressive, almost singed your eyebrows. Older kids got to witness the similarities between taking a hot rod, giving it an aggressive look by jacking up the back comparing to taking an Integra and lowering it until it almost scrapes the ground. Of course the people who grew up driving these amazing vehicles, were sparked with old memories, visions, and the pure love of these machines. Photos and edits by Kyle McMullen
