Brent Backman -- 1957
Was this how it looked in 1960?
Not quite. The cars are prepared to a much higher level now but the
I miss the ragged-edge driving on the slippery "real" tires of the era.
Still, this is a fairly typical main-event
group for Laguna Seca, circa 1960. This could easily be one
of several drivers in a "knobbly"
Lister-Jaguar, Ken Miles in Otto Zipper's Porsche
RS60, Ron Dykes in the ex-Carroll Shelby Maserati
300S, and Gordie
Glyer in his screaming red Testa Rossa.
Enough dreaming. In the real world
of 2006 Brent Backman of Jackson Hole, WY, in his 3870cc. Lister-Jaguar
"knobbly" (about the least "knobbly" "knobbly" you'll ever see!) leads
Bill Lyon in his 1700cc. 1960 Porsche
RS60, Steven Read in his 1957
Maserati 300S, and David Love
in his 1958 2984cc. Ferrari 250TR.
