Re: I Also Did Some ARRC / SCCA Research Last Night

: : SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) records confirm that four racers
: were on the grid for the Formula A race, and that Kirkbride was
: the only one to complete the race --

Wooeee there are some names in there! Jerry Hansen, Oskar (sp?) Koveleski (wasn't he Carroll Smith's favorite racer?), Peter Gregg, Steve Behr, Bob Sharp, Gordon Smiley, Tony Adamowicz, Scooter Patrick. Remember I'm British but I know all these names. Possibly because when they went on to greater things I was was living in the USA and buying Autoweek from 1977 to 1983.

: I am in contact with his daughter, who has his Heuer Camaro, his
: trophy and lots of photos, and I am optimistic that we will be
: able to tell the "back story" of these watches.

Great! There may be some interest in right-pondia for those photos. See previous post (which has gone into moderation -- what'd I say?)
