I got these photos years ago while researching the history of the first car I codrove. The photos were taken way before my time in codriver's seat. I remember the former driver's name was Mark and I met him vintage racing a Lotus in 1999 or 2000.

Is that last set of four from MIPR? That corner looks mighty familiar!

If it is where I think it was, then I was standing just out of sight to the left on the inside of the corner. First few cars through the corner cut big time pulling all sorts of crud onto the tarmac. From then on it was really interesting watching everyone sliding around on the junk and getting REAL close to that guardrail.

Brings back some great memories!

P.S. Curiosity got the better of me and I pulled out the binder of old "stuff".

That RX-7 is Mark Hardymon and Tom Drake. It was John Woolfe's car from the 1981 season. It probably is the 1983 Michigan International Pro Rally in those bottom photos. Mark ended up 5th in the driver's championship that year (Tom 4th for co-drivers). That was the season of new Quattros and "Blackie" the hand built 4wd RX-7. Ah the good old days!

Hmmn, links to photos have been disabled (SS.com moderators?). They were kinda large. If anyone would like to see pics, PM me for links.

They show as embedded images, not links.

I see 'em fine. I don't think any of the moderators have messed with them (at least of which I am aware).
