1986 Laguna Seca SCCA ITB Race 1974 Ford Pinto (Driver: Barry Streets)

Some of my Dad's old taped In-Car Footage of racing in his 1974 Ford Pinto ITB Racecar at Laguna Seca. It's pretty rare to find In-Car Footage of the old track configuration (Back when Laguna Seca Racway was almost an oval) because It wasn't attempted too much in a race. I apologize for the quality, these were taken with a remote camera and then recorded with a VCR that was held in place with foam under the Seat of the car... pretty good for old VHS tapes that are 20 something years old though... ENJOY!

Tuned 2.1l Ford Pinto SOHC in anger...
Short clip of a tuned Ford Pinto SOHC engine - bored to 2.1litres, Big Valve head, ported and polished, match inlet, twin Dellorto DHLA45 carbs, electronic ignition and a custom Exhaust manifold. This engine made 170bhp on the rollers at Redline Tuning in Iver, and snapped the propshaft universal joint like a carrot during a test run - Happy days :).

Lacrosse Wisconsin Speedway Racing October 4, 1970 First Oktoberfest 200
Lacrosse Speedway October 4, 1970 LA CROSSE INTERSTATE SPEEDWAY Sunday Afternoon, October 4, 1970 OKTOBERFEST 200 The first Oktoberfest 200 was scheduled for Sunday afternoon, October 4 at 2 p.m. The track opened at 10 a.m., the gates opened at 11 a.m. and time trials began at noon. The race length was scheduled for 200 laps around the 5/8-mile oval, making the distance 110 miles. The rules allowed for 1955 through 1970 American-made automobiles to compete with the exception of "Pony Cars". Other specific rules included: 15-1/2 inch maximum tire width; 23 gallon maximum fuel tank; one mandatory pit stop was required, at which time crews were allowed to add fuel. The purse offered was $8,000 in cash and merchandise with $1,000 to win, plus lap money. $100 was offered to any driver starting in the 33 car field. Pit entry fees were $5 per person and advanced grandstand tickets were available for $3. Tom Reffner of Rudolph piloted his 1969 Mercury Cyclone to victory in the first Oktoberfest 200 stock car race at LaCrosse Interstate Speedway on Sunday, October 4. Reffner's winning effort earned him a $1,000 check plus $341 in lap money. Marv Marzofka of Wis. Rapids held the lead for the first 37 laps, while Jim Sauter of Necedah and Jim Back of Vesper were in second and third respectively. Reffner was slightly off the pace and in fourth. On the 38th trip around the half-mile oval, Sauter and Back both passed Marzofka's '69 Torino. However, on lap 48 Sauter and Back both tried to avoid an accident in turn three and crashed into the concrete retaining wall. Both cars were out of the race and Marzofka recaptured the lead. Reffner kept at his steady pace in second and overtook Marzofka on the 107th lap. From that point on it was Reffner all the way. Marzofka was plagued by overheating problems and had to make frequent pit stops. He eventually placed 16th. Marzofka held the top spot for 95 laps to earn him $308 in lap money. Following Reffner across the finish line were Rich Somers of Stevens Point in a '69 Torino second; John McNamara of Baraboo in a '64 Mercury Comet third; Bill Mueller of Shakopee, MN fourth in a '70 Plymouth; and Dennis Sobkowiak of LaCrosse fifth in a '65 Plymouth. On the 79th lap, Louis Vetrone of Wis. Rapids hit the retaining wall in turn three and was taken to the hospital with possible cracked ribs. In time trials Loren Iverson of Black River Falls smashed into the retaining wall in front of the judge's stand and was transported to the hospital. Iverson was apparently only shaken up. In the non-qualifiers race, Ron Backeberg of LaValle drove his '57 Chevy to first place. Allen Ward of Elba, MN was second and Don Dhein of Wis. Rapids was third. Baraboo's George Kopecky piloted his '63 Ford to first place in the Consolation race. Sonny Immerfall of Marshfield was second while Ray Slaback of LaCrosse took third. Sixty-five cars timed in and a crowd of about 4,000 fans saw 17 of the top 33 cars enter in the 200-lapper finish. 200-Lap Feature 1. (88) Tom Reffner, Rudolph, '69 Mercury Cyclone 2.

Zakspeed Ford Turbo Capri
Zakspeed Ford turbo Capri beim AvD Oldtimer GP 2012 auf dem Nürburgring. Peter Zakowski fährt das Original Meisterschaftsauto von 1981, mit dem Klaus Ludwig damals gewann. Das Fahrzeug ist mit dem kleinen Motor der Division 2 bestückt mit 1,4l Hubraum. In beiden Rennen sah Zakowski die Zielflagge wegen technischer Probleme nicht. Im Rennen 1 bedrängt er Oliver Mathai im Porsche 935 und im Rennen 2 räumt er binnen kürzester Zeit das Feld von hinten auf. Sowohl nach dem Training als auch nach dem ersten Rennen wurde am Fahrzeug umfangreich gearbeitet. Der Ladedruck ist noch nicht eingestellt und deshalb hat P.Zakowski die Hand häufiger mal am "Dampfrad". Vom turbo Capri wurden insgesamt fünf Fahrzeuge gebaut. Ein Fahrzeug wurde zerstört, eines zu einem Mustang umgebaut, ein Fahrzeug wurde von Herbert Stenger bei Bergrennen eingesetzt, ein Fahrzeug baut Stefan Mücke in Berlin wieder auf und hier eben das 1981er Meisterschaftsauto bei Zakspeed. onboard race1 at 05:35 onboard race 2 at 12:14

1965 Ford Mustang SCCA Race Car offered at Russo and Steele
Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale WITHOUT RESERVE and SOLD to the highest bidder, August 16th-18th, 2012 at Russo and Steele's 12th Annual Monterey California Auction. This 1965 Mustang fastback received a total restoration converting it into a SCCA "B Production" race car. New floor pans were installed over standard floors to tie torque boxes and frame rails into roll-cage. The trunk was fitted with the battery tray, Optima battery and TIG welded filler on a reproduction 16 gallon tank with sender and remote breather tube. This Mustang is a finished vehicle without any excuses. A similar effort would require $50,000 of professional restoration, beyond the cost of acquiring the basic fastback car. The engine block, transmission and 9" rear end are all 1965 casting dates for originality. For more information on this vehicle check out www.russoandsteele.com/collector-car/1965-Ford-Mustang/25951
