|Mac at the Monterey
Historics in 2000. He raced his 427
Cobra for 22 years in California historic events. Here he gives
a young race fan the thrill of sitting in the driver's seat.
Mac also raced
Can-Am cars, winning the "AutoWeek Vintage Motor Racing Challenge" in 1993
driving the ex-Roger
McCaig McLaren 8C-Chevrolet. His latest automotive project was
the restoration and race preparation of the ex-Gary
Wilson "Sting" Can-Am car.
|From Eric Bernhard
of "Entropy Racing":
"While the Sting
was his last personal CAR project, he was more recently the designer of
the "First Seat" infant car seat ( due to be on the market in the near
future), and a custom seat and head surround for Jimmy Castle's Lola 222
BB Can-Am car (expected to be on west coast racetracks next year).
And not to forget that he was also the medical consultant for the design
of the "extractable seat" used in all current F1 cars."
his career in historic racing, Mac raced motorcycles in California and
Mac practiced medicine on the Monterey Peninsula for decades. He's
survived by his wife, Kim, and his sons Damon James Archer and Shreve McLaren
