March 6, 1960 -- 4
Junior was just starting out in March, 1960. In Bob Norton's
photos we see some of the first of these cars to compete in southern California.
|Looking like a miniature
Maserati 250F, the Italian Stanguellini
dominated the early days of F-Jr. racing.
More info coming on the
cars on this page!
||If the Stanguellini exemplified
classic Italian styling, this Elva represents early British efforts in
Lower, lighter, and better
handling than the Italian car, BMC powered Elvas lacked horsepower compared
to the Stanguellinis' highly-modified 1100 cc.Fiat engines.
March 1960 -- 5
|French F-Jr efforts fell
far short of their Italian and British rivals.
Not even Dr. Bill Molle
could coax much speed out of this front wheel drive car. It was powered
by a Panhard opposed-twin motor and finished well behind the leaders.
