    Default More youtube, 240's running at Road Atlanta/Roebling Road

    Peck through the list, a great shot of John Williams "departing controlled flight" with some assistance from an RX-7 and the same of an RX-7 on the Roebling Road edition.

    Good vid and fabulous track, hopefully I'll have the chance to race there someday. The over-optimism of the other 240 was a bit surprising to say the least.

    That's John Williams, he's running at the ARRC next month in what I'm pretty sure will be the same car. I think he would have been able to hold his place if that FC hadn't helped him off the track.

    The camera must have been in Chet Wittle's Z - he won the ARRC that year. John and Chet were dookeing it out with the RX-7's the entire race. The two RX-7's were so concentrated on taking John out that they let Chet slip though at the end and win.

    I think John got so tired of the RX-7's running into him - he decided to just take them both out even if he didn't win.

    The first three photo's below show the damage on John's car - the last photo show's Chet's Z at Tech Inspection after winning the race.
