Here is a cool video that I put together featuring a new addendum to my hobby of attending historic sports car racing events in Northern California. I have started to interview folks about what they have brought for the weekend and how they are enjoying their time at the racetrack. I enjoy learning more about who owns these race cars and how they are getting on at the racetrack throughout the weekend. Any stories related to the cars and any past history involving the car is greatly appreciated.
I really enjoyed briefly speaking to everyone in this video, including stumbling across a rare and unique racing car that was competing this weekend. The Ferrari 750 Monza Spyder was being driven by Tazio Ottis from Berkeley California. Our conversation revealed that this car has a storied history from back in the day from the likes of the 1961 Formula 1 World Champion Phil Hill. This is a 3.0 litre engine that is 4 cylinders with 250 horsepower.
I look forward to 2020 at the David Love Memorial Races at Sonoma Raceway.
Here is a quick little track that features Formula Fords making their way through Turn 1 at Thunder Hill Raceway. I wish that I captured more footage.
Thanks for visiting The Racing Ear.
