Jody O’Donnell wins, other Corvettes stand out against Porsche onslaught at HSR Mitty 40th anniversary race

# 46 Jody O’Donnell powered over a 39-car field including familiar rival # 33 Mike Donohue to win the always popular group 5 race for big bore production sports cars.  Check these in-car videos, watch his mirrors for qualifying and the race.

# 6 Brad Hoyt and # 37 Claire Schwendeman were other contenders.

# 33 - 2017 HSR Mitty John Reisman gp 6.jpg

# 33 John Reisman in his ex 2015 Coyotte chassis Whelen Corvette IMSA GTP finished 2nd to Theo Bean 1988 Nissan Turbo in race group 6 for GTP cars. 

Virtually all of the original Lola based Corvette GTP cars have been relegated to museums.  It was a real treat to see the # 40 1985 Corvette GTP Eagle replica in the hands of Lyonel Kent for owner John Robarge.

# 64 Robert Blain had a good drive to 4th place in a 27-car field in race group 9 for IMSA GT/Trans Am GT1 cars.

Congrats to Author/Collector/Racer Tom Cotter for finishing 19th in his # 33 very original 327 cu in C2 in a massive 52 car field for race group 3 SCCA Production cars.  The winner was a hot Porsche 914-6.

And also to Bernie Chodosh, irrepressible Brit for a mid-field finish in his hot-rodded C1 that was (appropriately) bumped to group 5. There were 95 Porsches (1956-2009) entered in 5 race different groups (vs 18 Corvettes) accounting for an awesome one out of every three cars. Thanks to Larry VanScoy and David Ferguson for the great photos. Results compiled by Jan Hyde
