Track Maps of the Past: Lockbourne AFB

Look at this map from the program for the 1953 National Sports Car Races at Lockbourne Air Force Base in Columbus, Ohio and try and tell me that it isn’t perfect. What could have that family returning from the rest rooms so grumpy, I daren’t guess.

Bring back the airport races!

    Pretty typical of the airport courses arranged for by Gen LeMay for the SCCA –a straight over a mile and a quarter and another nearly a mile–made for the Big Ferraris of the day. Usually when we entered one of these (March Field, Reno/Stead AFB) my Dad wound up parking the old MG Magnette as the OSCAs went by on the straights in practice they woke him up. Reno had a two mile straight and another two one mile ones connected by a dog leg that could be taken flat out in an MG. Besides, it started snowing just before the race. Mike Jacobsen
