his Porsche in rich Kent race. Don Wester, one of the nation's leading
Porsche drivers, will compete for a share of the $10,000 prize money in
the United States Road-Racing Championships Saturday and Sunday at Pacific
Wester, 32, of Monterey,
Calif., will drive a Porsche RS61 More than 100 of the nation's
top drivers of sports cars and grand-touring sedans will compete in the
road racing championships
for drivers and the United
States Manufacturer's Championship for touring cars.
Wester's hopes for a perfect
season were spoiled last month when he finished second in the USRRC race
at Laguna Seca, Calif. Prior to that he had won every modified race
he had entered this season. Wester finished right behind a fellow
Monterey driver, Charles Parsons. The two Californians will attempt
to continue their winning ways against another fast field of the nation's
best at Pacific Raceways this weekend.
Wester's interest in automobiles
started with a Model-A Ford when he was just 14 years old. In subsequent
years he drove many cars, and last March at Sebring co-drove a Porsche
Carrera Abarth with Bob Holbert to take top prize money. Holbert
is the present leading money winner among sports-car drivers.
At Pacific Raceways, sports
cars will compete simultaneously in two categories, those over 2,000 cubic
centimeters and those under 2000cc. The other feature will be the
grand- touring-car test.
Both races will cover
150 miles over simulated road conditions on the 2.25-mile track.
