Kastner Cup


The end of a long, hot, humid day with everyone in the SLTOA contingent getting in a lot of exercise walking around the course (and, in Creig and Ed’s case, a few laps driving around the course).

After a full day of vintage racing by a large number of interesting cars, 36 Triumphs took the grid for the 14th Annual Kastner Cup Race, named for Triumph racing legend RW “Kas” Kastner.  After a spirited 18 laps, each class (TR2, TR4, etc) winner received an award along with awards for the top three finishers.  Then, the announcement of this year’s Kastner Cup winner, graded in three categories: Jeff Shook.

The party started immediately after the awards ceremony but first, a photo of the SLTOAers with Kas. From the left: Kaizer, Dooley, Morgan, Kastner, Houghtaling, John Moore and Prez Steve Moore.

Great weekend!

Yurp Auto Show


Have a little time here in advance of this weekend’s run to the Kastner Cup proceedings at Blackhawk Farms to get caught up on a few posts.

Submitted for your consideration: the annual St Louis European Auto Show, held once again this year at one of the outlet malls in Chesterfield Valley.  Perfect weather (if a tad on the warm side), hordes of Porsches and BMWs, a fair number of businesses set up and a good representation by the LBC community.  The Jaguar Association of Greater St Louis had a nice assortment of cars on display and a few yards away, two MGs (immaculate examples of the TC and TD) and two reps from SLTOA: Kevin with his early TR6 and David with his equally nice TR4.

As per usual, not a bad show, plenty to see and plenty to gawk at (including Hyman’s ’37 or thereabouts Morgan trike).
