Sat  2 days  Kastner Cup @ Buttonwillow Raceway  Cregg Cowan  The 2019 Kastner Cup on May 4-5 in Buttonwillow will be one of the best ever. Of course the famous Kas Kastner, Triumph racer and race-team leader, will be there (see http://www.kaskastner.com/kasbio.html). In addition, Peter Brock (who designed the Shelby Cobra, among other important cars) will be re-united with the TR250K, a special-bodied Triumph he designed for the 1968 Sebring race (see https://www.velocetoday.com/peter-brock-and-the-amazing-triumph-k-car/). Seeing, and hearing, the TR250K is an unforgettable experience. But wait, there’s more. TTSCC’s own Dave Hogye will be there racing his immaculate TR3. And, as a special treat, TTSCC’s Curt Johnston is bringing TWO Huffaker-prepared race cars. The Huffaker TR7 will be driven by John Meuler, son of famous Triumph racer Lee Mueller (5-time National Champion). The Huffaker TR8 will be driven by Joe Huffaker. In the two previous Kastner Cups I have attended, the TR250K was the fastest car on the track. This year, the Huffaker TR8 may well take that honor. The Friends of Triumph racing group has been extremely welcoming to members of the local Triumph clubs in past events. I plan to drive down on Thursday (in my TR6, of course) so I can enjoy hanging out with the racers for a practice day before the weekend races. Please let me know if you would like to caravan with me. Cregg Cowan cregg.cowan@sri.com

22  Sat  TBD  Sessions Ride  Geoff Ullmann  “Session” stems from one of two allowable drinking periods in England that were imposed on shell production workers during World War I because of the long work hours. This Session Law was in place until 1988! To honor the spirit of this law this ride will conclude at a brew pub in Morgan Hill. Session beers (under 4% AVB) will be available for sampling and higher alcohol beers will be optional. We’ll meet up at Peet’s Coffee in Morgan Hill (time to be determined) and head through the mountains nearby and end up at the pub. More updates will follow.  
27  Sat  3 days  Idaho British Car Club Summer Tour    Idaho British Car Club Summer Tour for 2019, June 27-30, located in Moscow, ID. We have christened the tour, “Discover the Palouse,” which describes our intent for you to fully enjoy this beautiful part of Idaho and Washington. The drive to Moscow will in and of itself be delightful regardless of your starting point, but we have more to offer once you get there! The host hotel is the Best Western University Inn, and we are very excited to be working with them. They have given us a block of 100 rooms, of which 46 have already been reserved. I suggest that you make your reservation as soon as possible. The hotel will also host our Thursday (6/27) evening reception, as well as Saturday evening’s awards banquet. https://www.idahobritishcars.org/moscow-rooms/ We have arranged several Friday (6/28) activities for you to participate in if you so desire, these being a wine tour, a dig for star garnets and a Palouse drive. Or you can explore the area on your own. https://www.idahobritishcars.org/event_listings/st2019/ We are excited to have the Saturday (6/29) show in downtown Moscow, where we have been given 2-1/2 blocks to display our cars for all to see. We should have a large crowd, as the Farmers Market will be just down the street from us. There are also numerous stores and restaurants for you to visit. In addition to being able to visit a new town (a first time for Summer Tour!), we are so happy to have you joining us on this tour which will surely be unique.
