Walter Mitty Days... Off to the Races

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Gwen Fowler Real Estate, Inc 10307

This past Saturday, April 27th, Henry and I headed off to Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta in Braselton, GA for the 42nd annual Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) Mitty Day (aka The Mitty). The weather was beautiful, unlike it had been for months on end. Couldn't have asked for better weather. This was going to be my first time at this event, Henry had been approximately 20 years ago. It will most definitely not my last. The variety of cars racing, the staff, and the venue all were beyond expectation.

When we arrived we used the little kiosk/tollbooth to pay our admission and find a place to park. Grabbed our snack bags and cooler from the car. Yes, you carry in with you. Then a short walk to find a place to watch the races.

It was surprisingly fun, I don't like crowds, noise or hot days in the sun.  The day was all of that plus I had a great time.

It was a blast and if you haven't seen the movie with Adam Sadler, the movie is  a good way to spend a couple of hours.

I've only ever been to a race once and ended up returning to the car after only about 10 minutes to wait for my husband. I couldn't take the noise. I was happier waiting in the car. LOL

Hi Gwen- now that looks like fun!!!!! We went to a race down in Homestead FL once and it was fun but I was torn between watching what was on the screen and trying to watch the racetrack.

Kathy, there is no screen, so we got on a hill and could see 2 turns and a straight away. It was a blast.

Sharon, drag races are too loud and stockcar has too many people, the Mitty was just right.  Short races with different kinds of cars love old cars. Quiet between the runs.  You have to go to  Mitty.
