Jerry Grant

drove ex-factory Ferrari Testa Rossa #0704, and later #0768, for Dick Hahn of Yakima Washington.  Though based in the Northwest, Grant often appeared at California races.

He finished 2nd to Chuck Parsons' Birdcage at Vacaville on August 20th, 1961.

Grant scatters cones as he slides off  the wet pavement at Vacaville.  This gave the lead in Saturday's qualifying race to eventual winner Dave Ridenour in his Lister-Jaguar.  Sunday winner Parsons was slowed by throttle linkage problems in this race.

He qualified through the consolation race and finished 14th.

Ed Sauer of Seattle, WA, sent me this photo from Pacific Raceways.  Grant burns rubber as he accelerates away at the start of a 1960 or 61 event.  Next to him is Lew Florence in a Lotus Mk.15 (?).  Behind is Stan Burnett in his Chevy-powered Burnett Special.   (Back to:  Ed Sauer's Photos)
