May 4, 1957
Bob Norton sent me these photos from
the May 4th, 1957 race event at Hourglass Field.
The start of the race for cars under
Ken Miles in John von Neumann's Porsche
550 gets the jump on Bob Drake in Joe Lubin's Cooper- Climax "Bobtail".
||Miles and Drake battle for the lead.
How many times did these two face off
in the 1950s and early 1960s?
|Miles in John von Neumann's Porsche
550 looks pleased with his victory over long-time rival Drake.
Soon enough the two will meet again.
Thanks to Michael T. Lynch & William
