|(7-6-09) From Ron Cummings:
"This is one of the racing Speedsters
that I owned. Dale Hirsh owned, prepped, and raced the car.
I bought it from Dale. I crewed for him and helped rebuild everything
on the car when he was racing it. He was sponsored by Roger Burch
of Scientific Automotive. Dale even rebuilt the Hirth roller crank
himself. The factory said it could not be done but we had four local
race drivers who rebuilt their Hirth cranks (Al Cadrobbi, Ed Barker, Dale
Hirsh, Miles Gupton). Dale won many races with the car along with
the 1965 Pacific Coast Division SCCA class E Production Championship. The
car ran the runoffs at Daytona that year. It is now vintage raced by Steve
I beat Ozzie Poul's ex-Hooper Corvette
with the Speedster at Del Mar with this car. Ozzie spun out three times
trying to catch up."
