Sounds like there is a story behind this. Maybe a black flag or a chat with the stewards possibly?

Got my Palmer Motorsports Park SCCA Track Night In America video done. Just a short video of the track "night."

 

 

What a gorgeous track! Nice video.

Fun stuff for almost ten years in this car.

Looks as if it's a fun track.


Speaking of annoying sound tracks, you can turn off the sound in these primitive transfers of 8mm movies to VHS to DVD if it annoys you.


To those who are used to fast-Mustang speeds, the in-car stuff might look like slow-motion, but take my word for it: they were made as fast as I could get us to go. All taken from a Chevrolet VEGA Kammback (two-door station wagon) in the very early 1970s. In case it's not obvious, you'll get a chance to travel around Ontario Motor Speedway, Riverside International raceway, Old Tijuana Airport, and Old Holtville, all tracks that are now defunct, dead, they have rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. These are ex-racing tracks.


The Tijuana Airport film is jumpy and gets stuck some, because the actual acetate was a poorly executed copy of the original, which I mistakenly gave away.


Note in the RIR Rain film one of the stars is the well-known proprietor of Fast Line racing school (Willow Springs).


The last two are un-edited evocations of what the racing was like for amateurs (Holtville Aerodrome International Raceway 1972) and professionals (RIR 1975).

These are amazing time capsules of Southern California sports car racing Frank. The Riverside ones really bring back memories. Thanks for posting.

Missed your chance to run at

Riverside International Raceway?

Ontario Motor Speedway?

Holtville Aerodrome International Raceway?

 

Click the bolded/italicized text to see In-Vega 8mm films from 1971, '72, '73.

 

These will be much slower than Mustangers are used to, but I

guarantee there is very little speed left in the RIR and OMS laps;

the HAIR lap is a demo-only effort just to show where it all went.

 

Page with links to those videos and a few others from the era.

 

RIR track diagram; OMS; Holtville.

 

If the noise of a primitive 8mm-to-VHS-to-MP4 transfer bothers you,

turn off the sound.

 

EDIT:

Much better video transfers (commercial service iMemories.com).

No sound/commentary.

 

RIR

OMS

From last year, my GT500 vs Camaro at 5:15 and against a Super Cobra Jet at 5:58.

Driving the car off the line and into 2nd gear as my Nitto 285 555Rs will not hold hard launches or fast shifts even at the strip.
