GatorMOG is the Morgan car owners club of Florida. It is really a just a ‘US State specific’ subset of the greater MOGSouth.
The Florida Morgan owners do like to get out and fly the Morgan car flag every now and again, with or without the parent club, MOGSouth. The 60th Anniversary of the Morgan Class win at the 1962 running of Le Mans seemed like a good opportunity to get out and show the cars in Florida.
Daytona, FL has held endurance car racing since the early 1960s and now with the Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) 24 Hours of Daytona Classic, held annually, it just seemed right to commemorate the 1962 Morgan Class win at Le Mans at this year’s 24 Hours of Daytona Classic.
The Morgan Owners of Florida worked with HSR to have a Morgan only car corral at the Daytona International Speedway and take a few parade laps of the famous track. We had 17 Morgans. We affixed a commemorative Racing Roundel #29 to our Morgans and adorned the Car Corral with photos and memorabilia of the 1962 Morgan Class win.
