Following last year’s Corvette extravaganza, just 16 Corvettes appeared in 4 race groups. So we include results for 6 Corvette powered “Specials” from the 1957-1959 era.
Hats off to Jeff Abramson for winning the Group 4A race for 1963-1966 GT cars > 2500 cc against a 45 car field that included Shelby Mustangs, Cobras, Ford 289 Sunbeam Tigers and Jags. How did he do it? Reportedly good car set-up, big carburetor vs fuel injection, qualified well and drove a great race.
