John von Neumann -- Glockler Porsche / Dr.
Grale Preson -- MG
Also from Moffett Field in August, 1953. Armstrong's car is
listed as a Porsche, but looks like a Denzel
(Glockler?) to your webmaster. Neither of these drivers appear in
the entry lists for the Pebble Beach sports car races, April 18-19, 1953
or the Golden Gate Park races, held on May 16-17, 1953.
|(1-8-08) Historian Ron Cummings suggests the car #112 might
be a "Glockler
Porsche". Does anyone know more about Armstrong and this car?
(1-9-08) From author/historian Michael T. Lynch: "I think
the picture of Armstrong in #112 at Moffett Field in 1953 is actually John
von Neumann in practice in Ed Trego's Glockler Porsche. The reason
I say practice is that I think he may have run #11 in the race itself."
(6-25-08) From Don Blumenfeld: It's probably a Glockler--the
BMW style pin drive wheels are interesting. It's not a rear-engined
Denzel for sure."
