      Sunbeam Owners of the South will be gathering at the Walter Mitty Vintage races at Road Atlanta this April 28-30. We will have reserved parking in the infield and we’ll be staying at a local hotel. More details will follow but for now check out for event info.
      See you there! Eric

      I copied your notice of the SOS event so that I can place it in the RR.

      We will be staying at the Wingate Inn in Buford, Georgia at exit 115 of I-85. This is right across the street from the the Mall of Georgia which has 225 stores for shopping. There is a block of rooms available until April 7th at $82 per night- phone 1-678-714-0248 and tell them you are with the Sunbeam sportscar group. Special room rates of $82 per night are available for April 27-30. The hotel website is: … andInfo=WG

      This is the same hotel that we stayed at for the show at Chateau Elan last year and it is very nice. We will have a hospitality room and a swap meet as well.

      Contact Eric Gibeaut at [email protected] for more info

      I have updated my earlier posts with a new Mitty website address. You must buy an infield parking pass to join us in the reserved Sunbeam parking area in the “Cars of the UK” area on Saturday and the deadline to buy discounted tickets for the Mitty is April 14th. We will even get to take a touring lap of the track in our cars! Our special block of hotel rooms will be held until April 7th. Please send me an email or a PM if you plan on bringing your car to the infield of the track so I can give the organizers a total count and also let me know if you will be joining us at the hotel. All Sunbeam, Hillman and Rootes cars are welcome! Thanks, Eric

      Unless I get a lot of work done on the car, it looks like I will be towing from Jacksonville, probably on Friday. If anyone wants to make the trip with us, let me know. We will probably have to head back mid-day Sunday unless something changes.

      This is the last week for the discount rate at the host hotel so get your Sunbeam ready to go and we will see you there! Eric
