Always photogenic, the Pre-War entrants
put on their usual fine show at Sears Point.
|Sliding around Turn 7 on little more
than bicycle tires: #8, Carla Marvin in the 1920 "Fall 8 Sprint";
#17, Brian Blain in his 1916 National, with riding mechanic ?????;
#44, Gary Lucas in a 1915 Ford Model "T" racer; and #81, Bruce Hudkins
in another Ford Model "T" racer, this one from 1922.
Imagine being a riding mechanic under
the primitive conditions of WW I era racing.
|Gary Byrd in #25, a 1925 Vauxhall 30-98,
leads Terry L. Larson in #56, a 1933 Sprint car, and #35, Dave Olson in
his 1935 MGQ "Brooklands" into the esses.
||A closer look at #17, Brian Blain's
1916 National, with courageous riding mechanic ????? hanging on for dear
Simon Favre's Bourgeault F-Jr.
