|From Vince Howlett, Victoria, B.C:
"I emailed Mike Malone about his race
at Sears Point a few weeks ago in his Lotus 15 (see below) and here is
his response. It is not the ex-Don Orosco car as you said on your
website, Tam, but another one that Mike has had for a while. Great
From Michael Malone:
"Let me address your questions; Sears
was a blast, as on Sunday I started on the pole, but about three cars got
by me at the start including Pete Lovely. I was following Pete, closely,
and he spun in the carousel. Couldn't believe Pete was spinning in
front of me! I, too spun to avoid him and ended up 13th by lap 2!
So, the victory was not easy and attests to a fine car!
My car is #620 series 3, I believe the
last 15 made and was Innes Ireland, factory car. I bought it in the
UK several years ago and raced it there. I did take 5th in Class
and a Team 2nd at The Classic LeMans last summer and a 1st at 6 Hours at
Don still has his car which packs a very
powerful 2.5 liter engine. Can't say I would need that, my car goes
plenty fast for me!!"
