More Bob Drake

Visitors are welcome to submit photos & memories of Bob Drake's racing career for this page.

Bob Norton's photo of Drake at Pomona in 1960.

He's driving Maserati Type 61 "Birdcage" #2452.  Joe Lubin owned the car and it was the first "Birdcage" to appear on the West Coast.

I saw Drake drive this Maserati at the first race I ever attended, Laguna Seca in June, 1960.  He led the main event easily until mechanical problems slowed him.

Ken Miles went on to win in Otto Zipper's Porsche RS60.
