F1 @ the Glen…..anybody been there?
I’m a newb at F1 Fanatic, but a well-seasoned F1 veteran. Saw my first race at Watkins Glen Oct 6 1968. Jackie Stewart won the race in a Ford Cosworth. Drivers list is a who’s who….Mario, Surtees, Graham Hill, Bruce McLaren, Jack Brabham, and my personal favorite…Derek Bell. I was 18 and hooked for life on F1 and real auto racing. The next year Jochen Rindt won and Graham Hill cartwheeled off the end of the straight and broke both legs. And most recently….Vintage weekend @ the Glen this past September…incredible photo op for me…my profile pic is the John Player Special from Mario’s 1979 season, now owned by Regogo Racing and driven by Doc Bundy…the distinguished gentleman racer in the black & gold driving suit at the center of the picture. Had a great chat with Doc while he sat out the Saturday support race when his Lotus wasn’t up to the task. Anyway, any other people from the Glen out there?
