Gran Turismo Jaguar E-Type
1980 National SCCA Champion Jaguar. First production sports car to turn
over 100mph lap average at Road Atlanta. Yes, faster than big block Corvettes and Cobras.
The Jaguar, Datsuns & TR8s (C production) were running faster lap times than most B production
cars, at this time. Eventually they wound up in newly formed GT1 class.
1982 Brainerd Int'l Raceway , SCCA Regional Championship.mpg
Combination 8mm Movie , early Video camera .Paddocked with good friend
Larry Keuler and his 71' Mustang . This was a fun weekend , Mustang ran good , we had fun
. I think that if I had been a little more agressive I could have won this
one . During the race the Exhaust pipe
extension came partialy unbolted from the header , I backed off a little
thinking it might come apart and swing around under the tire , by the time
I said the hell with it , it was to late to catch Myron's Camaro and pass him in corner 1 .
He always backed off for corner 1 , I didn't .. I settled for second .
Special thanks to Paul Busta at P A B video for profiding much of the 1982
footage , Paul has the original for anyone that is interested .
1982 SCCA Blackhawk.mpg
SCCA Regional Championship at Blackhawk Raceway 1982 , David's 1970 Mustang Mach-1 . Spun twice , air
pressure to high in rear tires .
Best GTR launch control reaction ever
Courage is strong in this beautiful GTR Pilot! She took the directions
given to her and just rolled with it!
I love the part where the fear takes over body control, which makes it hard
for her to think straight to let off the gas to make it stop. Hahahahaha
This is by far the best GTR Reaction I have ever seen with for GTR Launch

A picture history of how my road racing 1970 Mustang Mach-1 came about , Some

SCCA Runoffs Early 1980's
This movie has a major star in it....Paul Newman. Probably the greatest
Formula Ford driver of all time Dave Wietzenhof (only because he didn't
move on to upper formula) wins. My goal but we didn't make unfortunately.
