Whats New?

Just sat down to sort more photos from the past. Todays project---Monterey Historics from 1995. Some great action shots and of course some paddock photos also. Look for them on the web soon. I hope some of you went to the Riverside Raceway Museum and saw the driver get-together. I bet it was a fun time. If you are in the area it is not to be missed. Of course you can always check out their web-site. Back later with more from the Left Coast. DM
