Just added a bunch of Riverside Can-Am photos, still more to follow. Rex Mays 300 Indy car races next I think. Maybe Trans-Am,too many to choose from.

Old Photo Time

Posted on April 23, 2010 at 12:56am 0 Comments

Just spent a couple days scanning old photos from Riverside Raceway. Sure brings back memories of when cars were not all the same.

Posters and pins

What the fun things you find in the closet. Boxes of old pins and ticket stubs,piles of posters. Also more to be sorted and photo'd. It is cool history and always special.

Sorting the Past

Posted on September 14, 2009 at 10:56pm 0 Comments

Just spent a couple of days sorting and labeling more photos. Found some from SCORE Off-road races in 1978/1979, also some from the Riverside 6-Hour enduro race. Also more from the IROC races at Riverside. Then there are the pictures from the Monterey Historics 1977/1978/1979. What a collection.

More Monterey Musings

Another fantastic weekend in Monterey. Great racing and beautiful cars. Perfect weather for a change. Only downer was seeing Derek Bell involved in some strange accident in the parking lot Sat. after the races. If anyone needs a cool transport vehicle,check out Denkel Industries. Huge truck with lots of cool features. Can't wait for the photos to be sent in by all the members in attendance.

Hello Daniel Mensinger,

 Good to know that there's another SHADOW appreciator out there. I'd certainly be interested in any photo's of Shadow race cars that you may have. I'm intending to draft out a book outline about the history of the Shadow marque in CanAm, F1 and F5000 and would be interested in receiving contributions from people, particulalry rare or unseen or detailed pictures.

Kind regards,

Dr Paul F.

That would be great Daniel. We always need grid sheets, entry lists and other documentation on 'pro' races or on Nationals. All sorts of interesting things raced at Riverside!
