J. Mozart -- '58 Lister-Chev.
/ D. Randy Riggs -- '59 Costin Lister-Chev.
Powerful iron thunders out of "Infineon's
Turn 8A. John Mozart in his 1958 "Knobbly" leads a slip-streaming
D. Randy Riggs in Syd Silverman's 1959 Costin-bodied car.
Mozart's Lister was driven in 1960 by
East Coast legend George
Constantine. At the first "Pacific Grand Prix", held at Laguna
Seca on October 22-23, 1960, Constantine
led a world-class field in what was then called the "Kelso
Lister-Chevy" or the "Kelischev".
Riggs' car was originally bought by John
Edgar and was to have been Maserati 450S V8 powered, but that project
came to nought. In 1962, the car appeared at Pomona painted bright
yellow and with a monster drag-racing Chevy V8 installed. Driven
by sprint car star Bob Edmison, the
car did well at the drags but was never properly sorted out for road racing.
