As he revved his 1964 Triumph Spitfire through Dawsonville’s downtown roundabout, Timothy Blythe had no idea whether his car would make it to Florida for the “Sick Week” street car event in early February, let alone succeed. However, by the end of that week, his Spitfire had clocked in at 10.92 seconds going 122 mph on a quarter-mile track at Bradenton Motorsports Park.
