The only races I have actually attended in more than 10 years are vintage races and the Runoffs. The Runoffs are probably the best racing anywhere, but the best looking cars, like Alfa Spiders and Jags, have disappeared. I write about the production classes, and they are full or Miatas and tin tops. So, to see beautiful race cars, you do have to watch vintage racing.
A couple of years ago we drove up to the TWS track to watch the SCCA races. I was with two former SCCA racers who, along with me, hadn't been to an SCCA race in years. We were curious to see what changes had occurred over the years. Wow were there changes. That day there were about 30 Miatas running nose-to-tail . . . lap after lap after lap. They might as well have been on a circle-track for all the "racing" they were doing. We left after spending less than an hour at the track.
