We were invited to KTR Motorsports in Ayer Saturday, March 22.- Great Cars! Good group! Pictures will be up on the past events page.
For those of you who aren't familiar with KTR, it was started many years ago by John Geils Jr. The name may ring a bell as this is the fellow you're more likely to know as Jay Geils - the guitarist of the J Geils Band. Jay always loved cars,needed a place to work on his cars and figured that the band would not last forever, so he started KTR as a restoration and maintenance shop. Over the years the business expanded, particularly in race prep and trackside service.
In 1996 Geils sold the shop to Bob Gett, the current owner.
KTR can be found at most major vintage races across the country. They've regularly work on many Lotus, including Elevens, Sevens, 23s, a Fifteeen, Elites and many open wheelers.
Andrew Funk, who runs the shop, gave us a thorough run down on the cars.
Because of the spammers, we took down the forum.
"The time has come", the Webmaster said,
"To talk of many things:
Of NELLI--and Loti--and sealing-wax--
Of cylinders--and rings--
And why the rad is boiling hot--
And whether Esprits have wings."
