Mark, I am very pleased to find your work with the IMSA Firehawk series. I crewed for a couple of years and helped in one of the victories in Sports class. Thanks for the memories!!

Absolutely fantastic photos. As a big fan of the original Eclipse (I own one) it's amazing to see Eagle Talon and Mitsubishi Eclipse in racing. As I live in Europe I didn't even know they had so much racing history!

Thanks for preserving these images online!!!

Hey Mark, Thanks for the memories of the old IMSA series.What a great time in IMSA racing history. I was lucky to have worked at Brumos Atlanta when Brian Redman was there. Mr.Redman is the greatest A terrific racer and a true gentleman as well. I was able to meet a lot of excellent drivers during those days. Al Holbert, Derek Bell, Bob akin just to name a few.A fun time with some truly remarkable people and some fantastic cars. Thanks again, Bruce Wardlaw

I was wondering if anyone has heard of a company based out of Wisconsin that builds custom Stradale SSZ street/race cars? This is a full tube chassis hand built Kit maybe?

Mark, I just found your web site.Great pictures. Thanks for your efforts on the IMSA RS pictures in particular. Any chance that you might have pictures from the earlier IMSA weekend in 1977? (It was wet.) Also any IMSA RS from 1975 through 1979 that you might have in your files. Thanks so much. Den

Thanks so much for posting your pics of the old IMSA days! I was poking around the internet looking for pics of the Corvette GTP car when i found your galleries!

I like your 80s era GTP photos. Aren't they beautiful cars? Toyota, Nissan, Probe, BMW, Porsche, Jaguar. Even Pontiac and Buick got in there for a while. The designs are timeless. The drivers were exciting to watch too.
I've always wanted to see an IMSA race at mid ohio, watkins, etc. but living on the west coast the closest I could get was the Riverside Raceway, Portland and Sonoma/Sears Point.
Here is my IMSA page and don't forget to check out the 1986 crash page link I made. Destroyed Probe, Jag, and Vette!! That damn Bundy!

Do you mind if I put a link on my IMSA page to your page

Also, what did you think of the "Corvette Challenge Series". I think Boris Said and all the drivers made for some exciting and thrilling races from flag to flag.
