Very cool! At exactly 1:00 in the video at the bottom of the page is a yellow Sunbeam #64 (getting passed). Guess this was in 2016.
That was Dan Walters from California driving a Tiger.

Dan didn't race last year. We'll see if he shows up this year. This is a photo of some of the Sunbeams in attendance in 2016

Have been considering going to Mid Ohio for a day or so, but it looks like I'll be staying home for the next few days. I've been experiencing constant fatigue for the past few weeks. Barb listened to my lungs last night, said I'm not passing air in my right lung. Probably walking pneumonia, a good excuse to do as little as possible!

We all at times try to figure a way to do as little as possible

That condition is not conducive for a lot of work.....

Sure hope you get some medical attention, Before it gets worst.

At our ages pneumonia can be devastating.

P.S. A little sunshine on the chest and back will help loads, suggest a nice run in that "Bomb" of yours....

Well, I did almost 300 miles yesterday, in the sunshine with the top down. Don't see any great improvement, so I'll try the lazy bones treatment, maybe even a visit to the (horrors) doctor.

I know two people who had pneumonia last year. One spent a month in the hospital and is now fine. Simple chest x-ray will tell you. Fatigue is a symptom of pneumonia.

My brother in law was only 55. Independent. Self reliant. We weren't close. The other person I know that had pneumonia last year, I know very well. 80 years old. Fatigue was the ONLY symptom. Got admitted day after losing energy. One month in hospital plus a month in rehab. If you're reading this, Mr Bill, more people care than you'd think.

I know I am a long way away however our local newspaper had an article about the vaccine to protect lungs is now available. It also noted the low take up by older people most in need. I need to see my doctor about a needle to protect from pneumonia.

I seem to have recovered, but family events and rain are going to prevent us from attending.
