SVRA Watkins Glen Group 3 Sat. 9/8/2012
This is video of the Saturday Group 3 race from the ex-Bob Sharp Datsun
2000 driven by Mike Unger at the SVRA Watkins Glen vintage races. It was a
damp but drying track with drizzle coming down before the race as we sat on
the grid. Great racing all weekend with the Porsche 356's prepped by Vic
Skirmants. First and second place in this race were Dave Burton and Ron
Goodman. Ron and I had a good battle to the flag on the last lap.
Unfortunately, I have no video from Sunday as the camera turned off during
a black flag delay before the start if the race. If one of the Porsche
drivers has video, please post!
1973 US Grand Prix at Watkins Glen New York
Stewart had already clinched his third World Driver's Championship when the
teams came to Watkins Glen, and he intended the final Grand Prix of 1973 to
be his swan song.
"I had decided in April that I would retire at the end of the season, win
or lose," Stewart recalled. "Watkins Glen was going to be my last race in a
Formula One car. François Cevert was going to be number one in the team
for 1974, although he never knew it. Ken Tyrrell and I had kept it a secret
that I was going to retire after that race. In fact, not even my wife,
Helen, who was with me that weekend, knew."
With just a few minutes left in the Saturday morning qualifying session,
however, the track suddenly fell quiet. Cevert had crashed violently in the
uphill Esses heading onto the back of the circuit, between Turns Three and
Four. Fighting the car as he went up the hill, Cevert ran too high on the
kerbs and slid into the right hand guardrail. The car then lashed sideways
across the track and struck the Armco on the left side of the track at 150
mph at an almost 90 degree angle. The nose of the car submarined into the
ground, causing the car to flip upwards on over the barrier, coming to rest
upside down on top of the Armco. Jody Scheckter's McLaren was close behind,
and he stopped and rushed over to help Cevert out of the car, but Cevert
had died instantly. Ken Tyrrell had lost a great driver and Jackie Stewart
an outstanding teammate at the circuit where Cevert had taken his only
Grand Prix win. "It was a horrendous accident which took the life of a
wonderfully charming, personable, handsome young man, who was a tremendous
friend to both Helen and me," Stewart said.
The Tyrrells of Stewart and Chris Amon had earned the fifth and twelfth
spots on the grid, but the team decided to withdraw in tribute to Cevert,
and Stewart's driving career was over after 99 races and an all-time record
27 Grand Prix wins.

Here's a few laps of me in my Datsun 240Z racing Erik Wood's Alfa in the
