Race Cars

We are all motor heads and to me there is nothing better than a purpose built race machine. I would love to see the art of the race car/bike/machine.
I'll start, these were taken a couple years back at pacific raceways at the vintage races.

(nearly) every year I go to the historic races at Laguna Seca which has become a family tradition for about the last 30 years. I usually bring my camera and post what I get on here.
Check out my 2012 thread with all the pics here. Other threads are around as well.

Here are a few samples;









Twin Cam MGA







adam corolla had a fantastic race with this mini




the SWB is just about my favorite thing in the entire world.... well after my wife and my son



and lastly:

Whatever my wife's.....

...little cousin is driving.

From St Pete - a race that he won:





From Indy - he finished third:



I believe that next year, they'll be driving the new Dallara IL-15.



Victor is one of the most focused 18-years olds I've ever seen. Between sessions, he's either in front of the computer studing the data points or talking to the team owner or team engineer about the car's setup. Here's a good example. This picture has two racers, one coach and one team engineer. One of those racers is serious and the other is in love simply with playing the part of Joe Cool, race car driver. You can figure out who's who.




More here.

I've always loved the Lous 49 and the 23. Someday I hope to build a "replica" of the 49!

That's awesome! I have raced motorcycles but haven't had the chance to race cars yet. I think open wheel road course would be the most like racing a bike. I have a formula Vee at the house just haven't gotten around to getting it legal to race. The bikes always get in the way!

Anyway here are some more from the vintage races which are always so much fun to go watch.
