SCCA Vintage Film from Candlestick Park (or Candlestick Point) from the mid 1960's. Great Stuff!!
This was shot by an old co-workers father in (I believe) 1965. It's from 8 mm film and has no sound but the video is pretty cool. If you raced sports cars in Northern Ca. in the 60's, you might be or know these guys. I like the 356 that broke down and they stuck a hay bale to protect it while guys are getting the rear out, in the preceding corner.....





Maserati 300S Racer
By Miguel Caparros. In the 50's the great Formula 1 constructors would derive their two seat Sports Cars directly from the Formula 1 cars. The 300S was based on the 250F that had a very long career from 1954 to 1960. Only 26 250F's were built, most of them were raced by privateers. The 300S began in 1955 and 28 examples were built through 1958. It is amazing the performance extracted from these cars that had Dual Over Head Camshaft Hemi head and only 3 liters, or 183 cubic inches. Power output varied from 245 to close to 300 horsepower from the 6 cylinder engine. I had both the good and bad fortune of having a few Maserati's over the years. Maserati marched to a different drummer and like many they had good times and really bad times. I also was exposed to their construction techniques when I owned a Stanguellini Formula Junior that was basically a 3/4 scale version of the 250F and it was to date the most successful Formula Jr car of all time. The 300S sports car was not always the fastest but it proved to be reliable enough to win more than its share of races against the Mercedes 300SL and the Ferrari 250 V12 Monza. It was a glorious time when the drivers were fat and the tires were skinny, and there was a direct connection from the factory race cars to the ones that were driven on the street. The 300s also begat a 350S with a monstrous V12 engine and my favorite of all the 450S with a 4.5 liter V8 that had a sound that is unforgettable.

Spec Miata Mayhem at Roebling
Nothing like the start of a Spec Miata race for crazy excitement. People get shuffled out of order and it takes a few laps to sort things out. Make sure you see the action at 2:20. This is 5 laps from the Sarrc Invitational Challenge, the championship race for the SCCA Southeast Division at Roebling Road Raceway near Savannah, GA, held October 9th, 2011. Data by Traqmate
