Stars and legendary cars that will join in the celebration honoring featured marque Nissan are part of the entry list that has been expanded and updated this week by Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) for the 41st HSR Classic Motorsports Mitty presented by Hagerty at Road Atlanta, April 26 - 29.
Stars from motorsports and Hollywood are headed to the HSR Classic Motorsports Mitty at Road Atlanta later this month, including recently added comedian, radio personality, television host, podcaster and avid automotive enthusiast Adam Carolla, who will be racing his ex-Bob Sharp Racing 1973 No. 33 Datsun 610.
Carolla is a longtime fan of anything fast and with four wheels, and classic and iconic Datsuns are among his favorites. He has several significant Datsuns in his collection and has chosen this particular 610 that will both compete in and be part of the weekend's celebration honoring all things Nissan/Datsun.
Carolla's 610 is the back-up car to the Datsun HSR and Motorsports Hall of Fame of America member Elliott Forbes-Robinson drove to the 1976 SCCA B Sedan Championship. Fully race-prepped by Bob Sharp Racing in period, the quick 610 has a L20B engine fed by twin Mikuni carburetors.
Another highlight Datsun set for the Classic Motorsports Mitty is the 1976 IMSA Camel GTU Championship winning 1970 No. 47 Datsun 240Z that is now owned and campaigned by David Martin.
