  1. Cobras and E-types and Mustangs, Oh My! | Classic Car Adventures

    […] Racing was an entirely different world back in the 60′s. This 8mm film, complete with its clacketing projector reel soundtrack, really has a neat feel to it. Just a bunch of people hanging out by the bay in NorCal, watching a stream of SCCA Production A/B/C warriors battle and bump it out on the streets of Candlestick Park in 1965. The 1.9 mile temporary road course was used from 1963 until 1965, using the parking lots and roads surrounding the relatively new San Francisco Giants stadium. Frantic flagmen, haybales for safety (kinda), and lots of excitement! Keep your eye out for the #7 Cobra driven by legendary Phil Hill, and the chequered flag taken by Don Wester in his yellow Porsche 904(?).  [Video link via The Chicane] […]

    […] Interesting Video of '65 races Found an interesting video of racing at Candlestick in San Francisco. The interesting stuff is past about the 2 1/2 minute mark where the video shows some GT350s and Cobras (and e-types etc) going at it. Jay http://thechicaneblog.com/2010/10/07…ideo/#comments […]
