    Hi Les:
    Really nice to see the Camel GT Pace Car back in its correct livery. Back in the Day - At Daytona, they had a Camel GT Tent set up - within which they had "challenges" for adults and kids. The kids raced RC cars on a track they had set up - and the adults could try their hand at a "Pit Stop Tire Change". They had a Z mockup with front and rear racing tires mounted. You had to take one off - and put another one on {either end}. If you beat the clock - you got a prize.

    Here are my "Official" Camel GT Driving Gloves... rewarded for a "Quick Pit Stop Tire Change". If you were "quicker than me" - you got a Camel GT Cooler and Emergency Road Kit. I missed that by a couple seconds every time...

    FWIW,
    Carl B.

    Yes - that is my BRE Z - and it looks like a reflection off Greg Ira's GT-R. Neat picture..

    Yes - that was at the Lake Mirror Concours in Lakeland, FL. Beautiful setting, wonderful event and really great people. If you are ever in Florida - this is a "must attend" event each year. Looks like I was cleaning the rear wheel...


    Here is one for you - Peter Brock with the Baja 510's in 1968

    That's definitely Paul Newman. If I remember correctly Bob Sharp sold that car to Paul and Paul decided a new paint job was in order away from the BSR colors since it was now a 'PLN Racing' car. I believe that's the same car you see in the BSR paint scheme where the '7' has been modified to a '9'.

    Looks like it could be the Customer Car build by BRE for customer in Jamaica. But it would take a lot more inspection to be sure..

    FWIW,

    Looks like a car I saw for sale at a vintage race at Summit Point back in 2002. I looked it over at that time but couldn't verify if it was truely a BRE car or just a paint job.
    Has it surfaced again?

    Thanks!

    Let's open our minds a bit and realize that there are more uses for an old Z car than we might imagine...

    This looks to be from Australia. Note the right hand drive Z... I hope the Porsche driver was alright!

    Just guessing, but it looks like it might have been a wild ride that didn't result in serious injury. It didn't appear to take one big hit, but rather enough moderate ones that the driver's body could tolerate. It's the quick stops that kill.

    I was searching online and ran across this photo of James Brolin and the Natural Light car at Lime Rock Park, May 1978. Hopefully the photographer has more pics of other Z-cars at the race.

    Anybody know where James Brolin's Natural Light car is these days? Had a chance to buy it but let it pass due to short funds

    Thanks!

    I believe the poster Bob Clucas owns it. I saw it at the Coronado Festival of Speed and heard it was at Monterey too. If you really need to know were a vintage race car is? Ask Les at Classic Datsun Racing, he was just showing me and my friend the other day pictures of vintage race cars along with history and current placement of the cars. Either he knows where it is or his client owns it.

    Yes, I own the car and still have it. Based on the photo above that I just found, I took the hood to my graphics guy - John at Sticky Fingers Design - to put the Natural Light Beer decal on the hood. I got accepted to Monterey again this year with the car, so having a blast with it!

    Hi Black Gold Man,

    That video is exactly why I bought the car (and Tom saved a lot of $$$ because it was a tired old race car when I got it ), I've got the best view in the house of some really cool cars. Here are some more shots of the Z with some pretty neat other cars at the 2011 Sonoma Historics and 2011 Monterey...

    If you compare the car in the Brolin shot in an above post to some of the shots here, you see the hood needs the Natural Light decals - which I'm having added currently.

    Enjoy! Bob

    Back to vintage photo's, here are a few I found and haven't seen posted here....

    The first photo is the pace lap at the Laguna Seca IMSA GTU race, May 1978. The Quality Inn car #71 is driven by Lee Mueller and he subsequently sold the car to Ramsey Racing who painted it the Natural Light colors. The other Z's in the photo are Sam Posey #33 (partially hidden), Frank Leary in #48 Fremont Datsun (who won the race) and Don Devendorf in the #83 Sun / Moon Electramotive Z.

    The second photo is from Portland, August 1978 with Dan Parkinson driving the Natural Light car (subbing for Clint Eastwood who replaced Brolin as the Celebrity driver) in the background and the 3rd photo is the same car in an earlier Victors Restaurant and Disco configuration driven by Frank Thomas at the Portland Trans Am race in 1977...

    "Don Kearney Jim Fitzgerald Datsun 240z Road Atlanta

    One of the first pix I had taken of Don and the very first race with Don. this should be about May of 1974. The little Fiat X 1/9 is mine. Don and Jim were discussing the slight spoiler on the front of Don's car. The photo was later recaptioned saying: 'I know Newman is in there, I say you suck him up on the back stretch." ah the days of messing with other drivers. At this point is still a 240z and will be upgraded to 260 and 280 by engine size. 3 carbureators and a cam that wouldn't quit put out about 300 HP from the little straight six."

    Default The mitty circa early 80's

    I found a few photos of Dr. Ron Finger driving his '71 240z at the Mitty in the early '80s. He had Turbo Tom Wyatt build him the 3L turbo setup to go for fastest time of the day and took it straight from Tom's shop to Road Atlanta for the event. My understanding is that they achieved their goal and captured FTD, but if anyone has more photos or info about it at the Mitty I would love to see them/hear about the history of this car.


    Cool Thread!

    Early 70's in AU, I have no details but the circuit looks like one near Sydney that has been closed for a long time. Unfortunately this class of racing is now non existent, for S30's it's either historic racing or targa events now.

    "This is around 1979, in the rain at Road Atlanta, and may be at the SCCA Runoffs, but I'm not certain. Paul is in our Datsun 610, coming down to the bottom of the hill past the place where I had a really hard crash in my Z-car a few years earlier. Where the cars are coming down the hill in the background, I had air get under the Z going at least 150 mph, and the car lifted, went over backwards, hit the embankment and started flipping end over end. I wasn't hurt, but the car didn't finally stop tumbling until it was just about at the same spot where Paul is in this photo. This is an SCCA B Sedan, probably with around 220hp on tap, with the Canon and Kendall sponsorships that were backing us with Paul. I'll tell you, he was a terrific driver in the wet, always very much on his game."

    I crossed paths with one of the great ones at DETROIT GRAND PRIX last Friday.

    They went on to win the GT-II class and the race overall after covering 167 laps ( 1002kms ) in 7 hrs and 49 mins, in a field with 45 entries.

    This was the S30-series Z's third big win in Japanese domestic racing.

    All the pics of Paul Newman make me think what other star today is even close as passionate about racing...

    The only name that comes to mind is

    Patrick Dempsey.

    They sort of have that calm demeanor about them.

    That **** went on in my backyard back in the day. My house will be built in upper left corner of this pic.


    People like Henry Miller and Gar Wood hung out there.
    In the art post Ron Finch video shows a pic from the raceway maybe 1958.
    They raced motorcycles too.

    1934
    I was reading about the guy that built it had made the land owner and lumber yard partners
    for lumber and land but had to pay 9 bucks cash for the nails witch were hard to come by.

    My hero growing up. I feel blessed to have been there and seen him race in person. A great competitor who happened to be a pretty good actor...

    Default Atlantic Motorsport Park Oldies

    Photos of the local track from back in the day (Atlantic Motorsport Park, Nova Scotia).

    Some datsun products easily spotted.

    There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply.
    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.

    No, the flags in the background are just one sided and viewed from the back. Look at the lettering on the car and the tires. It's not backwards.

    FP national autocross champion, Andy Craig. I watched him autocross at several events including the time he hopped into the fastest BP Corvette in the nation and went quicker than it's owner.

    The story that isn't mentioned is the one where Newman, with Mario's urging, went over to Europe to see if F1 racing was a possibility. That it didn't likely meant that F1 was not to come to America.

    I really like the article on Craig's AX car. My current 240 has nearly the same set up but I drive it on the road.
