The Man Behind many of the roads in GAMRR 2021

5-10-21

SO; WHO IS BEHIND CHOOSING MANY OF THE GREAT ROADS WE WILL BE RUNNING THIS YEAR?

Many of you know COVID shut my access to Vermont for the last year. Luckily John Buffum lives not an hour from the Trapp Inn; the host hotel for our event. John volunteered to start laying out the routes in late January ’20; and to date has actually with some input from me as to tracing parts of the original ’55-’56 routes laid out about 400 miles! He is just now doing a re-run of the event checking the route instructions and mileages. I plan on going up to pre-run the event with John in the upcoming months. I will be co-driver (navigator) for an 11 time SCCA National Champion and Driver for the Audi and British Leyland factory Rally Teams in the late 70-80’s. What an opportunity!

Here’s a link to a 2012 Road & Track story about John :
