This success lead to the formation of a second publication; Classic Motorsports, which has become America’s largest publication catering to classic sports car enthusiasts. These publications led to an events business, that includes hosting the Classic Motorsports Mitty, one of the oldest and largest vintage races in America, the Ultimate Track Car Challenge and the $201X Challenge series of low cost events; that have run for the last ten years.
Tim does a variety of contract publishing work that includes publication of the Amelia Island Concours program, the World Challenge fan guide and other concours and race event programs. He maintains, rallies and races a collection of about fifteen eclectic, mostly British, sports cars and has restored over 40 cars since that first Model A.
