Article on X180R Race Cars

Great article in this month's Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car issue on the X180R Esprit Race cars. Not as they currently exist in Maryland and raced in vintage races, but about how the race series in which they participated and dominated.

Not from the article, but taken at Road Atlanta last weekend. Doc Bundy and Dave Murray driving X180Rs. Very cool to see

Props to Kevin McGovern for keeping these cars running and racing. At great personal expense.

The article isn't really fluff, lot of first person stuff from the drivers.

Many pix of actual races from 'back then' as opposed to pix of current vintage races.

But the current pix are good to see, too!

Never before seen? I dunno.

Exactly which issue is this article in. I went to the newstand and poured over the Nov issue and no article. Did I miss it? Or is it in the Oct or Dec issue? Or did I look in the wrong Magazine (I looked in Hemmings Sports and Exotic).
